    Smile LS7 Clutch in a 2001 Camaro SS

    Good afternoon everyone!
    I am new to this web site and look forward to talking/meeting
    with you in the future.

    I have a question about the LS7 clutch & flywheel I had
    installed in my 2001 SS....we did not install a new Master...
    is this an issue? Soon as I took a test drive the gears jammed.

    Note: all proper GM P/N match as needed; clutch, FW, Slave...that's it.

    Really appreciate you help.
    Thanks.

    I just did this about 10 days ago and had no problems *. I also had replaced my slave and master last year.

    Did you use the proper torque on the flywheel (74 ft lbs) and clutch (52 ft lbs)?

    Did you have any issues with bleeding?

    Did you use the proper alignment tool for install?

    And did you replace the fluid in the transmission prior to test run?







    * - I did have the bolt for the torque arm back out on me last friday, last night I replaced it along with a liberal amount of threadlock on it.

    ...I will have to ask the mechanic about the torque values...hope he did this job correctly.
    So, in your opinion, the issue would not be caused by not installing new Master PN12568371?
    Also, do you have any opinions why there is no issues changing gears in the next 40 miles of driving after the one time event?

    Thank you, sir.

    ...yes, a little.
    I am getting the car back on Friday.
    If the issue continues on&off I will first change the Master to PN 12568371.

    Thanks for all your input guys!

    Happy Easter Everyone!
