That's weird With your model year and the measurements you've quoted, your slave should definitely be fitted with the 10mm spacer. But the symptoms you describe sound like something is preventing the clutch from engaging. You could try refitting the slave without the spacer, just to see if that makes any difference. I'd also withdraw the pushrod again just to check it's still true (if it's been put under undue pressure, it may have been distorted).

If you still have problems, give Oberon a call. Nick recently had a problem with his slave and the boss, Steve Street, was very helpful (turned out to be an assembly error at the factory).

Ah ok good point about the rod. Will take it out and have a look! It doesn't look central in the hole it comes out.

Could it be possible I've opened the clutch too far and now something like a clutch spring is catching...I have no idea what is in the clutch on this!

How do i get the spacer out by the way?! I tried whacking on wood but no joy.

The 'wood-whack' should work as the spacer shouldn't be that tight a fit. If all else fails, maybe a tiny spot of superglue on the end of a matchstick pushed against the end of the spacer (don't touch the sides!). Then pull the matchstick out with the spacer attached. You can then clean off the glue.

The only things I can think would cause your problem would be:

incorrect or faulty cylinder
wrong combination of pushrod/spacer lengths
pushrod not locating properly in the pressure plate bearing.

When you remove the pushrod, check that it's installed the right way round, i.e. with the o-rings at the slave cylinder end.
