I pulled my t56 today due to a rear main leak I need to fix and a clutch hydraulic problem.

I noticed that when I bought my slave and master (both GM brand new) I couldn't push the clutch rod on the master until it was connected to the slave.

Today when I pulled the tranny, I had the master disconnected from the slave, pushed in the clutch, it went to the floor. does this mean my clutch master is bad?

I did cook the master line the first day i drove on the drivers header, could that have done my master in
