I have replaced the clutch 3 times the slave cylinder twice. It will work fine for around 6 mo. then the clutch comes apart. is this a bleeding issue since there is no mechanical adjustment other then on the petal or am I missing something?

    Does it wear out? If so the clutch master cylinder has insufficient clearance (push rod needs to be shortened. Even poor quality parts should last longer.
