Clutch Drag

I have temporary Internet connection, so I will make the most of it.

I am experiencing mild clutch drag and I suspect lost motion in the linkage.  Given the state of my back, I want to spend as little time as possible on the ground under the vehicle.  Any suggestions as to the cause would be appreciated. 

The reservoir, the usual culprit, is full.

High on my list would be: Slave cyl, Master cyl and welds on the throw out fork. None are fun or quick. You could try bleeding it but if it needs bleeding it probably needs more.

I think you are right Greg.

In past months I've had to have both the Bergmeister and the Syncro done.

I put up with them for as long as practical.

They were at their worst in heavy stop start traffic and at lights.

a worn out / failed pilot bearing can cause clutch drag.
I've seen many that were trashed , often from no felt dust seal being in place.
