... OK Joe, ya beat me to it. I was also going to say, Michael might be just low on fluif. The "sudden disappearance" would be due to pumping up the system. If so, it'll be back to square one tomorro

Does anyone have a good way of bleeding out ALL the air from the clutch line. I can't put the car in reverse, without it grinding. I've bled it a few times. I've even put the rear end on ramps. Any i
