The master cylinder rod does not meet the hole in clutch paddle. In fact, when the white retainer clip is removed you notice part of the plunger seat is broken. When you push on the paddle the seat and the master cylinder don't meet till about half way done. I bled the clutch system from the reservoir. By vacuuming the reservoir to 25hg (only because the mightyvac didn't want to go any higher) holding for 2 mins. Then pressing the clutch paddle half dozen times. I did that about 7 times with at 20min break in the middle.
