Give it a try with the swap of the bracket piece instead of the rod because although I believe you can use the EM1 rod with a lot of pedal adjustment I equally believe the oem rod can be used with the EM1 cmc with no issue and less pedal adjustment.

Thanks for the information and luckily I had them laying around to confirm so I am thinking the EM1 bracket piece should be used as opposed to the stock one.

Just to confirm to everyone else reading this, the piece we are referring to is the piece that the snap ring secures which holds the rod in the CMC.

How do you remove the slave from the piece that is connected to the tranny?

there are 2 12mm bolt on the top. loosen those and it should fall right off. if you are talking about the fork. its not connected it just pushes up againt it.

Man, just when i think we got it right.

Honestly, i didn't think people would swap the plate and snap ring over.

when i did mine i used: em1 plate and snap ring, oem rod and oem bracket.

Works fine. It seemed like common sense to me to put it together this way.

^ Same here, With the new one I was gonna try to use the oem one and that's why I noticed it in the first place.

It is just a better CMC design overall and I don't think I would ever go back to the stock CMC.

Gotcha. Was the pedal adjusting the most tedious thing for getting Fathom's up and running? I am gonna go through the entire run down once I get my new clutch line.

When you say plate, is that the same thing as the retainer piece? We're talking about the small round metal piece correct?

yes the retainer for the piston.the flat metal peice is fatter that the em1's and it compresses the spring to get the the snap ring in.which is like holding the ridind the clutch consistantly. if you use the stock rod use the retainer from the em1. trust me guys. that retainer destroyed my clutch in 600 miles.

I just installed a new EM1 cmc today(oem rod, set screw, pedal bracket, and em1 retainer) and I am having issues. I follow the instructions from here: Guide: Proper Clutch Adjustment for CMC

I get everything good where I can push the slave in and when I turn on my car it just feels like slush. Only thing I can think of is either a bad slave(which squeaks and kinda hesitates to release when I push down) or something with my clutch. I replaced both my CMC and SS clutch line so they are flawless.

I am at a loss.

sounds like air still in the system. I got mine finished this morning and took it for a test drive. never shifted this great before.my pedal is WAY softer than it was when using the stock retainer. i guess its cuz the fluid is flowing more freely now. try the the bleed method in the video i posted.
