    With Mark and Mike's comments you have a wealth of experience and knowledge. Can't do better in my opinion!

    Guy's I need some more info if you would be so kind. As I said the parts are being fitted by my local garage that very limited Ferrari knowledge. The mechanic told me that they had changed a block but it has not done anything however, he reported the the block was it there front of the car basically behind the front boot area but my understanding is the block is fitted onto the gearbox and as the problem still exists I am assuming the one at the front is something to do with the brake system and nothing to do with the clutch and in effect he has change the wrong block what are you guy's thought on this?
    Thanks
    Dave

    Default 360 Clutch issue

    Dave,

    The front master cylinder is pretty straightforward and shares the reservoir with the brakes.
    I'm not sure what the mechanic could have changed.

    You can trace the clutch line from front to back in these two diagrams.

    As said earlier unless it's an obvious external leak it's either the master cylinder seals or the seals in the release bearing.
    A crack in the clutch bleed block (35) should be visible.

    Thanks Mike, so far the master cylinder and this mysterious forward block have been changed he told me the leak from this front block was evident hence why he thought that was where it was coming the issue I have is that I thought the block was only at the back??

    I had a similar problem with my 360 clutch. Whilst out for a drive I noticed that I was losing clutch pressure, so I pulled over and called the AA, a very nice guy turned up and checked the hydraulic fluid, one reservoir for both clutch and brake it was a bit low, there was an indie not too far away so I phoned them and they spoke to the AA guy, telling him what checks to carry out, one of which was the block on the right side of the engine and as others have said, this is very easy to check for leaks, but it was fine, so I then agreed to have the car recovered to the indie, the AA guy said that he could arrange for a specialist vehicle to recover the car or he would follow me to the indie, approx. 25 miles away, in case I lost the clutch pressure again.
    The car was left with the indie and I got the train home, a week later the indie said that the master cylinder was leaking slightly, access via the bulkhead panel and weather proof membrane, there's no sign of any "block" in this location, and they replaced it at a cost of 600, they then delivered the car to a bodyshop for me, to have the front bumper repainted, when the bodyshop tried to move the car once their work was completed, they found that the clutch would not work at all, so the indie recovered the car back to their workshop, they then said that the slave cylinder had failed, the car had travelled 30 miles since the master was replaced, they said that while the cars in pieces it would be best to change the RMS, the clutch (it had about 12k on it) and the gearbox top mounting, so that was another 2700
    So my advice would be to get a "keyhole" camera and view the slave cylinder and clutch, via the inspection plate on the gearbox bell housing.
    I'm not here for a long time - I'm here for a good time !
