I just put a stage 3 southbend clutch in my car, as well as an upgraded throw out from zzp and while I was there I replaced the clutch master cylinder. I've bleed this system 3 different times now all with different methods, and nothing seems to have helped. the clutch pedal has good pressure. I'm honestly stumped, the only thing I could think of is a defective clutch master cylinder. Any help is greatly appreciated

Is the bushing on thr back of the pedal still good?
And it could be a faulty clutch master as well

I just replaced both the socket and the clip on the pedal, I order a master from rockauto for $35! Hope this fixed my issues

Hopefully its simple.
I'm dealing with a bad slave put of the box right now.

Did you by chance put new orings on the clutch line/distribution block?

Should lock into place. Line the tabs up and turn. Go in through the engine bay

Put the new master in with ease, but it still takes the clutch pedal 2s to return and actually engage the clutch while shifting gears. not to mention that's with me literally dumping the clutch trying to shift

I've done it a few different ways. I have a mityvac I tried to use but it was just sucking air from the connection I had to the bleeder. so I hooked a line up to the bleeder and routed it into the reservoir and actuated the pedal until I stopped seeing bubbles. I've tried using the GM method with no prevail. I tried pushing fluid through the bleeder with my mityvac.

Starting to wonder if maybe the slave is over extending

I think the southbend is the reason why they made that spacer. Can't remember.
Im pretty stumped on this one

Possibly. I usually bench bleed the slave and the clutch master. Then I'll run a hose into a bottle with fluid in it. Pump the pedal a few times. Hold it down and crack the bleeder. Do that until it feels right
