    These setups seem to be touchy. You may need to shim the slave cylinder or get an adjustable master cylinder. The Tick Performance master seems to be the best out there.

    Does the pedal return when you push it in, or does it stick to the floor when you push it all the way down??

    If it doesn't return, then you still have air in the system, and it needs to be bled more. You need to get the system completely free of air before you can address the engagement/shimming issues.

    How are you bleeding it??

    You should be holding the pedal to the floor, then opening the bleeder (letting out air/fluid), then closing the bleeder, then pulling the pedal back up and repeating the process.

    So yes, following the proper procedure the pedal will stay on the floor after you open the bleeder valve, and it will have to be pulled back up manually.

    i had the same problem

    Take a look at your pilot bearing, also look if your clutch came with a spacer that could be the issue. The last thing would be your throwout bearing.

    its prolly your master then, If your clutch seems to have no pressure behind it your master could be bad. i just replaced mine and i was having the same problem.
