    Notchy shifting ?

    Just had a ls7 clutch install done on my 01 SS. Also, i had redline atf put in. Would it make sense that it feels a bit notchy at times going into gear? Almost feels smoother if im up in the upper rpms rather than lower rpm shifts. I have a tick adjustable MC. I adjusted the pedal out thinking it would cure the issue, but its kinda the same.
    Any thoughts?

    You might have to re-bleed the slave cylinder. Are the gears grinding when you shift? Is there any slop in the shifter?

    no, no slop in the shift or gear grinding. Just a tad notchy when putting it into gear. It just doesn't feel smooth like i'm used to. I wasn't sure if It needed bled again, or the the MC needed re-adjusted, or if this was a known issue with the LS7 clutch. I tried moving the clutch pedal out a tad, but it really didn't change the feel at all. I could try bleeding it again, see if I can pull any additional air out.
    Does this sound like the clutch is not disengaging enough?

    I couldn't tell ya as when notchiness is a concern, it's either shifter related or air in the system to me.
