watsup guys, so finally got 747 started up yesterday and as far as the motor goes, besides needing a tune, it is running pretty good.

few small issues

1. the clutch pedal engages like a pubic hair out from the floor, did switch to after market clutch but from the small things i have read that isnt the problem. Thinking i may be able to just adjust the pedal

2. 2 of 4 gauges randomly stopped reading while warming up the car at the exact same time. Boost/Oil Pressure, going to chalk that up to an electrical issue and trace the wires and check sensors.

It is like 20 degrees outside so not a damn thing is happening today, just trying to get some info on the clutch issue TBH, trying to get it to the shop and on the dyno Monday

I had this clutch issue over and over. It went away by accident one day. The pin started to fall out of the lever that pushes on the mc and when I was mashing furiously in traffic on the grand central parkway I think I knocked air out of said master cylinder. When I pulled over and replaced the pin the engagement point was up 2" from the floor. With that said I think it 1000% necessary to extensively bench bleed any new master cylinder. I don't have any other explanation as to why mine works so well after having given up on it. I blead the slave over and over again with no noticeable change. I eventually used a smaller bore for extra throw and this did help, but have since swapped back and still have a good point of engagement.
