So I finally got the transmission out of the car and once in the bell housing. I find a piece of rubber about and inch round the thing must have been bouncing. Due the damage to the boot on the slave and marks in the housing. My clutch was fried which I figured out but how the hell did the rubber get in there is mind boggling. But only my luck !!

There is a hole in the upper back of the block where things can fall down into the bellhousing. I'd take the manifold off and inspect what's going on under there. There are coolant lines and knock sensors.

If you need a new slave I have 3 with low miles and will send you one for the shipping cost.

Thanks Andrew I went out and bought a Exedy clutch set up the Mach 400 with a new flywheel from them and slave cylinder. They said no problems with this set up since really no heavy mods. It will be easier on my knee for driving !!!

Have a Merry and regards to the family

Good looking out that I looked it over everything is in place. I can't go crazy need to see a judge about a violation on a order of protection. Seems the wife is saying she see's me driving by the house a lot. Even thou my car has been down for a while and I'm in staten island she in orange county NY. Please send me a file in a cake !!!!

I will hold you to that bud !!! My siblings and cousins are to cheap to bail me out. I am glad you did the same set up. I was in a rush and just went with and liked the American made and soft pedal.
Maybe for Christmas my lawyer can get me at least my clothing it's only been since Sept !! What a joke !!

All done pedal is up and the shifting is as smooth as a baby's bottom. Also the clutch pedal is light to press thank God !!!
Highly recommend this setup
Cheers
