    Hey I need some help here i did a swap and the car ran great untill the clutch master cylinder went out. I replaced it and now the car wont go into gear at high RPM. It also lurches forward with the clutch to the floor and giving it gas.

    pull the boot off the fork and have someone step on the clutch

    if the cylinder isn't moving the fork all the way out, either you still have air in the line or the (new) master cylinder is junk...chances are theres air in the line. We had to use an electric pump to bleed it correctly, a gravity one wouldn't do it

    if it is pushing it out, the clutch/bearing are no good
