    I just finished my hydro clutch swap this weekend with the help of a fellow CK5 member beater_k20.

    I have to say, I had no clue what I was missing. I can probably say that I'd never install another 4 speed without a hydraulic clutch.

    Kinda a pain in the ass to install, but WELL WORTH IT!!

    I'm so happy....now if my front shaft and bumpers would get here it'd be time to wheel!!!!

    I had a gay mechanical clutch linkage that decided to come apart all the time or bind at the worst possible time.

    Mechanical linkage...problems with slop and not being able to disengage/engage the clutch when the body/suspension is all twisted up.
