Hi,
I was wondering if anyone upgraded to the McLeod Master cylinder and if that fixed the missed wide open 3rd gear shifts.

thanks

what year??? just my $0.02 but sounds like you have other issues.


It's a 99, I have a 12" duel disc Centreforce clutch with a Fidanza Aluminum flywheel. It shifts no problem going slow or even at high revs shifting slow.
It just won't go in when you're trying to bang the gears.
I just read the literature from McLeod who claims that their Master cylinder fixes these problems, so I was wondering if anyone had success with this product.

I reserve the right to stick my foot in my mouth but it think the master cylinder is more prone to fix the "clutch pedal on the floor issues". To me this more likely a mechanical gremlin common to these trannys.

Thanks for the input, I guess I'll try the master cylinder and hope for the best.

This is a well known problem that has been around for awhile .
Monster clutch also has a fix and master that works great .
You are on the right track with the master :D
