Just want to check and make sure I haven't missed anything. Dealing with a 1988 Jeep Cherokee Laredo 6-cyl manual. My old clutch master cylinder was leaking horribly (fill reservoir, it was empty by the time I shut the hood and got in the jeep). I got the old one out, bought a new one, and put it in Tuesday night. Filled up the reservoir, got in to pump the clutch and make sure it was OK before I tried to bleed the line, and it appears to be leaking just like the old one.
When I put the new one in, I put the cylinder in, bolted the bottom on, ran the top nut through, the firewall and bolted it inside, and then put the line to the top of the cylinder back in place. Everything is tight, and the clutch pedal is attached again to the master cylinder. When I clutch 5-6 times, the reservoir is emptied. There really isn't anything I could have missed, is there? It really is simple to install, assuming I got all the nuts and bolts back in place. I'm figure I just was unlucky and got a bad replacement master cylinder, but wanted to check here on what I did and ask if anyone has any other explanation for it.
Thanks for reading,
