Question *Update* Any Opinions?

Hi All!
Okay, so I've finally come full circle on the TB/WP and now its time for the "difficult" slave cylinder to go back in from wenst it came. As I try to wash the apparent grime off the detached plunger rod before reassembly, it becomes apparent that under the grime is a lot of rust and thick corrosion. Could this be why I had such grief trying to push it into the cylinder for removal initially? If the rod is this bad, what does that say about the inside of the cylinder itself? Could this explain why my clutch pedal would hang near the top of its travel when released cold? I'm thinking I need a new one.

Pull the retainer and rubber boot on the front of the slave and clean out any crap - also, a steel wool rub down for the rod will not hurt. Put a dab of grease in the two cups the rod contacts and reassemble ( release arm and slave )piston .... and assure that it settles into these cups on reassembly.
If your slave were bad, odds are that it would leak brake fluid - otherwise, it should be OK.

Thumbs up It's Alive!!

Hi All!
Well finally managed to get her all buttoned up yesterday. I was so excited to get it fired up, I had forgotten to put the trickle charge on the day before. After 3 months of inactivity I wasn't expecting much charge. I hooked up the battery and decided to try anyhow. Ignition on, warning lights and radio on, hit the "start" position....nothing! Not even a hint of turning, like the starter was totally dsiconnected. Again...nothing. Again....nothing! Crap! Think dammit, think! DUH! Forgot about the immobilizer! Try again. BWAAAH! (with noisy lifters).
Thanks again to those of you who held my hand and offered help on this!
