Removing transmission...T-Bone fer supper

Q: interesting that you have far more to say than is necessary so some will be snipped like it or not. and edited to suit your needs again i see lol. i am not sure that this is exactly what budd either said or meant but if you actually believe this max prove it because in reality you are dead wrong. an improperly bled system has air in it. duh no shit. thanks for pointing this out. air any gas be it air or fluid vapor can expand and contract due to temperature and thus can allpy a small amount of pressure over designed pressure to the throwout bearing. w r o n g ! ! ! in order for the expanding gas to build any pressure at all it has to be in a closed system and when the clutch pedal is fully released the system is wide open any expansion in the gas will do nothing more than push fluid into the reservoir and a contraction will pull a little out. either was no measurable change in applied pressure to the bearing. in addition vapor will cause inadequate release of the clutch and thus the bearing will see much more use as the operator pumps up the system. lol as you say that depends on where the gas is. if it is in the slave cylinder or in the line close to it all the pumping in the world will have little effect unless you can pump it really fast. so fast in fact that the slave never fully returns to its rest position and in that case the additional wear is minimal. over time this will cause a higher wear rate. thats a fact and its all common sense. maybe in your world but for the rest of us in reality it is pure bs. if it wasnt true there would be no reason to properly bleed the clutch hydraulics. hahahaha you are joking right!! there is no way in hell that an improperly bled system could cause excessive wear to the bearing but it is highly probable to cause excessive wear to the clutch. i dont claim to be a hydraulics expert but there are some simple facts that seem to be completely distorted. clutch wear can only be caused by the to bearing being shoved against the fingewrs of hte pressure plate. if you are going to claim that the clutch will wear faster and it will no doubt then the to bearing will also wear faster. you seem to forget that for the clutch to slip it needs something trying to disengage it such as the to bearing. but is actuality if the pressure plate is not being moved far enough to fully release the clutch disk then the pressure being exerted by the to bearing will actually be less than it would if the system were operating properly which would also cause less wear not more on the to bearing. now if you think that air in the line will actually cause the clutch to slip under full engagement and cause excess wear to the bearing that you really are an idiot. as for gravity the weight of the fluid is so insignificant in a 3/16 line that i doubt that it could supply enough force to even move the clutch slave cylinder at all never mind move it with enough force to cause excessive wear on the bearing. jeez i think i said that already try reading. air in the system will also not cause the slave cylinder to move because if it expands all it will do is push the fluid back into the master cylinder reservoir as at full release the ports between the master cylinder and the reservoir are open pretty much just like the brake master cylinder. this assumes the air/vapor is in the line not the slave cylinder. lol it does no such thing. it doesnt matter if the air is in the line or slave cylinder itself the same thing will happen and if you dont think so then you had better crack a few books. does however have the ability to cause excessive clutch wear because it could prevent the clutch slave cylinder from moving enough to fully disengage the clutch when required due to its compressibility. rubbish. yes most of what you are saying is just that rubbish. if the vapor is in the line and heads up to the master cylinder it will have nothing to do with the slave cylinder position. your facts are correct about air/vapor in the line but if that is the only place air/vapor is as you imply itll do nothing to the slave cylinder. you are again giving conflicting info and tripping yourself as you go. typical. like i said pure rubbish. once the master cylinder begins to move it doesnt matter where the vapor is because it then becomes a closed system and at that point the gas will begin to compress and reduce the amount of travel of the slave cylinder depending on the amount of gas trapped in the system. now if you soemhow think that the effect will be different depending on where the vapor is please explain i could use the laugh. as for the bearing wear i would think that it goes through as much wear sitting at a single traffic light while holding the clutch in as it does with a year of wear with the light to non-existent pressure being placed on it during no
