What did you use for parts? I was going to do that on my car, but the area for the Master is close and I could not find a real reliable source for the hydraulic throw out bearing. I wasn't sure about using a push or pull cylinder. Thanks
I guess the first question I should ask, do you have power brakes? ‘Cause I don’t think that there would be enough room for the clutch master cylinder with the power brake booster.
I went with the McLeod hydraulic throw out bearing. So far, it seems to be working good. The installation is a piece of cake. I just had to do a little measuring to set up the distance. The only problem that I ran into was, it had a slight leak at the banjo joints. I just added a crush washer and set the angle of the lines. So now, it doesn’t swivel, it’s stationary. So coming out of the bellhousing are two braided steel lines, one to the master cylinder and one for bleeding.
The master cylinder that McLeod recommended was the Wilwood universal kit with a remote reservoir. You mount it with the inlet to the side, not facing up. The hole in the firewall, I did have to relocate a little higher. And I had to reinforce the firewall for the clutch. What I did was to cut a piece of 1/8" steel and place it in that recess there in the firewall. And I used the existing hole in the clutch pedal. The linkage is threaded on the end, so I bought a rod end for the linkage.
If you want some picks of the installation, let me know and I can email them to ya.
