Re: Sinking clutch pedal (Was: Hi, and by the way)

I posted this earlier, but seems like it didn't make it to the list,
so sorry if this is duplicate...

	Had the same problem on my '87 5000 TQ. It was a bad master
cylinder - the fluid leaks past the pressure seal in the cylinder
hence no outward leaks. In my case, the pedal would slowly sink if I kept 
it depressed for sometime. Put in a new ATE master cylinder from Halsey
Imports ($45 - Halsey was by far the cheapest, 800-792-0081, ask for Scott)
and no problems since. I've posted the procedure for replacing the master
cylinder previously which Jason Douglas has forwarded to the list today.
Send me email if you have questions on the procedure.
