    Well as some may know I have been trying to get the clutch to work on my blazer for a while now. Well I got all the problems fixed.

    The Biggest thing that I learned was the fact that Flex Line (not sure if that is the correct name for it) can not be used to lenghten a hydro (yes was you may have guessed I can't spell) clutch line. So replaced it with a steel line and all is better.

    Now came the discovery............are you ready..................I drained the fluid in the transmission.............. and it was pure clean CLEAR WATER. :blush: Filled it with Heavy gear oil and all is good, but it still pops out of 2ND. I will get that fixed next.

    Thanks for everones help and time.:thumb:

    Im thinkin that just draining it wasent good enough, pretty shure all the water diddent get out, wich means that youll have water in your oil, wich means your oil is going to break down faster= bad news,

    I would pull it take it apart and really clean it good before you fill it up, this would give you the chance to fix the popping out of second problem to.

    Glad to hear the hydroclutch setup is working now. How much movement of the slave piston do you have now that it is working properly?

    That's what happened to me! Luckily, as fast as this thing leaks, I think I've cycled enough oil through it to really clean it out. No rust was in the water though, so I never worried much. I guess that's what happens when you buy a tranny from some guy who doesn't even remember what exactly it came out of...
