Clutch going out?
I was coerced into boiling the tires off last night with some buddies. Immediately afterwards I could smell the clutch, horrible smell. Its acting differently now, with it engaging closer to the floor than it used to. It still does the job, its not slipping, never had any other problems from it. But it feels like the pedal is much firmer than it was before the burnout. I've did some searching and noticed others have problems shifting when the fluid/hydraulics are an issue. Thats recently been a condition for me just sliding into first. Could there be air in the line causing this and/or dirty fluid? Or is my clutch on its way out? Also, the smell is still around, what's up with that?

Does anyone have any pics or know the exact location to drill the hole in the trans-tunnel for bleeding the air out?

FYI...This may or may not help you, don't have answers for the smell but if you are having issues w/getting it into gear after a burnout, your fluid may be getting too hot wich will in turn waste your slave and or master...insulate your line from any and all heat sources ie; headers. Put up a makeshift heat shield if you need to but it will help tremendiously and preserve the life of your slave & master cylinders. We did both, shield and thermal heat wrap around the line, no more problems for us, all her gears are smoothe now, no matter how much stress we put her under. Hope this helps you.
