Help please,

I am running an ernie slide transmission and know nothing about them.
it goes in gear, but when I put it in low gear and push in the clutch the car just creeps slowly, I bled it many times and the pedal does feel right, it does this in reverse also.
got under the car and checked everything out and it seems far as I can tell that the clutch is working, and the pads look fine.

I bled it by removing the line, putting it in a thing of brake fluid, pumping the pedal 3-4 times then reinstalling the line.

if I push really hard on the pedal it creeps faster, and it does seem to put a load on the motor, but just wont get going.

anything im missing here?

any help would be appreciated

i dont know how an ernie slide works but if it is similar to a brinn may be the internal clutch is worn

The method you use to bleed the system isnt pratical, look for a bleeder someplace on the tranny.
