    Hey Dennis, just curious about the rig you put Hydro clutch into. Can't remember if you told me if you used a different pedal assymbly or did you simply adapt the stock cluth pedal?
    I am putting a BBC454 in my K5 in the next month and at the same time I will be converting to Hydro clutch. I still have the pics you sent me too /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    any one else that has a comment to toss into the hat please feel free to do so

    When he provided me some info he said he used his existing pedals. That is what I am going to do. Hope to get out in the next few nights and get further on the project.

    Have you given thought to re-enforcing the firewall in the area where the booster will mount. That is a heavy brake booster.

    No, last time I looked on AA's website there was not a pic. I can take one tonight when I get home nad post it up for ya /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    It basiaclly bolts to two bell housing bolts then bends around to the side just baove the current manual linkgae rod is,then you have two threaded holes to mount the LandCruzer Slave cylinder too.
    I still need to figure out how to adapt the Slave to the GM master but AA has that info too but I need to get the Master first then they can tell me how to adapt the two togehter.
    When all this starts to come together I will repost it here probly Feb-March time frame.

    hey burt, good you're going hydro. I did use the same pedal asembly. just make sure you to choose the distance from the pivot point to the clutch rod correctly.

    the closer the clutch rod is to the pivot point the smoother the operation but the shorter the distance the clutch rod will travel.

    the closer the clutch rod is to the foot peg the tougher it gets, but you'll have plenty of throw.

    I mounted the master clutch assembly first and went from there.

    hope this helps,
