there is
no resistance. I've checked both the master and slave cyllinders (even
pulled the
slave out of the tranny) . No leaks! Would I see fluid if the seals were
bad? I just 
hope that it's not the clutch lever or release bearing! When my wife gets
home I'll 
have her depress the clutch pedal and see if the slave moves.
