You step on the clutch pedal and have somebody watch the slave deflect the fork on top of the transmission.

Start the car in gear with the trans in neutral. Press the clutch. If you can then shift it into a forward gear without clashing the gears, it's working.

If the car is not running, put it gear. Have someone attempt to push the car. Then push in the clutch. If the car will now roll, it's working.

Sorry. I limited my response to only what you asked. Didn't know you were asking for the function of the clutch, only the slave cylinder.

Thanks, I know the clutch is not working. I replaced the master cylinder, the line going to the slave, bleed the master and slave but still no clutch.

Now that you say this I agree with Answer #2 from Bob D. Is that arm that the slave is connected to moving?

By "no clutch" do you mean the car won't move or you can't disconnect the engine from the trans, i.e. if you start the car in gear it moves the car even with the clutch on the floor.

What's the history? I've seen barn cars with a clutch plate full of mouse crap that won't move the car and won't disengage as it just rusts up solid. This will fool you because that fork arm won't move either. But in that case the pedal should not want to move since there is nothing to push it back.

Can you get fluid out of the bleeder on the slave (i.e. are you sure the fluid is making it through the line?)?

Hi, Dave. Yes I have bleed the slave cylinder and got fluid out. The clutch pedal has no resistance.
How can I see the clutch lever.?

Here's a reference photo off the web so you can see the clutch lever on top of the bell housing just ahead of the clutch slave.

With the drivetrain in the car of course it's harder to see it.

Perhaps the new clutch master cyl. you're using is defective? I've seen some that disengage internally (the piston rod slips off the spring/cup asm.) when you try to do the initial system bleed.

The part in the circle should move.

Be very careful when bleeding the clutch and check that no air went through. I had the same problem and finally resolve that by realizing there was a little bit of air in the shoulder at the junction of the line and the clutch slave cylinder. Just a tiny bubble will result at having no resistance on the pedal.

Thanks so much, now I know what to look for or feel for. The photos are great.
