I was wondering if anyone had some ideas as to what may be causing my problem. There are no fluid leaks, replaced stock clutch line with a steel braided one, act 2600 clutch, newer slave cylinder, newer master cylinder, clutch has been bled 3 times. The clutch engages so far off the floor, basically at the top of the clutch pedal stroke. no matter how i adjust the clutch rod it stays the same and the clutch feels very mushy. so i am wondering if it has to do with clutch fork etc... anyone with some insights or have had this problem before... i need advice. Thanks

There might still be air in the line, or one of the bolts that holds the tranny to the block is missing or broken.

It's kinda wierd that your clutch engages high up off the floor, usually it will engage too low.

Is the clutch fork fully seated on the pivot ball? If it were caught on the edge it would make the clutch release too high. You don't happen to have an extended clutch rod, do you?
