R34 GTT clutch damper delete issues

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I've got a r34 GTT. 

Clutch has felt weird for a couple years now, my exedy cushion button wore out I got a NPC 5 puck spring button clutch installed a few months ago.

 

Back to the story the pedal always felt a little strange and spongy, changed the master still the same. 

I just changed the slave with a brand new one from Nissan and also got the braided line from master to slave from gktech (states for r32/r33 gtr) but fits perfectly fitted it all up bled it all over and over again using nulon super dot.

Now when pressing the clutch it feels like the first half travel is doing nothing then the second half does the work. When releasing it just releases to the half again then you feel the clutch spring struggle to bring the rest of it up. 

It drives fine with no slipping and grabs as soon as you start releasing, I adjusted the rod a little so it doesn't grab right at the bottom.

What is going on? Has anyone done the damper delete? Faulty slave? Or do I need the damper?

Thanks in advance.

Try a pressure bleeder.  Clutches are simple, and shouldn't need it, but it does sound like hydraulic failure.

  • Exactly what's doing my head in about it, especially since there's no damper now it's even simpler, bled the master then bled the slave how hard could it be, where is it even possible to mess up lol.

    Get someone under the car and see if the fork is doing what you think...i.e not moving for the first half of pedal travel. maybe its just doing what it should ...taking up the free travel before it bites. You may be used to the damper affecting the feel of the clutch.
