    I just did that swap in my 88' about three months ago. So far so good. Anyway, the parts for a factory hyd clutch setup (which is what I did) can all be purchased at the dealer. But if you are in luck, you can find a 85' or newer Chevy truck w/ the SM465 for a donor vehicle (must be C/K boby style). GM went to Hyd clutches in '85. If you are still interested let me know and I can give you a run down of the parts you are going to need. Good luck! -Tommy

    I have NOT tried this yet, but when I convert mine over to standard (hopefully this summer) I'm gonna look at the hydraulic master and throwout bearing used on late model Camaro/Firebird. The master cylinder, remote resevior, braided hose, and hydraulic throwout bearing went for about $143.00 complete from the Chevy dealer.
