    I'm converting to hydro clutch and with the placement of the slave I have a few questions.

    1) how much of the rod should stick out?
    2) which way does the bleeder point?
    3) how close to the header is save?
    4) how much travel is needed?


    **Thanks I got her figured out and should have pics by the end of the week (new roll of film)***

    1. 3" should be good
    2. Up
    3. 1 1/2"
    4. Enough to disengage clutch, how much did it move before?

    damn. I'm not even close to getting any of those measurements to work,LOL

    and as for how much did it move before...I dunno. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    any one have any pics of thier hydro set up from the bottom and from the top...or any pics of that matter.
    I basicly need a reference point to go off of (like the block/bellhousing split)

    If You want You could mount the slave under the cab, if the rod were long enough, and did'nt fall out, and the hose were long enough to reach.

    It does'nt have to be on the bellhousing. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    The one I have is a push style not a pull.
    I can mount it in the normal GM fashion but it would be about 1/2" away from the header, even though the slave has a heat shield on it, I know that is too close for comfort. I don't need to be boiling brake fluid.

    maybe I should hit up the local speed shop and grab a pull style.?????

    Add a heat sheild between the two. Just a piece of tin, or light flat plate, will help insulate it, airflow around both side's of the plate. Couple of hose clamp's on the header, forward and rearward of the slave cylinder?
