    So what is the easiest way to remove that big spring on the clutch pedal? Should I just remove the spring studs? That spring is perrty damn stiff and I don't have any leverage under the dash??? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    tie a wire around one end and pull or use some vice-grips. carefull with the vice grips if you clamp too hard they may kink the spring.

    Thanks, I got it off /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    So it would look like that spring is not needed with hydro?
    Did you toss yours Arq?
    That master cylinder shaft seams to have a very stiff spring. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    I left mine in place, just remember to adjust your bump stop or the master cylinder push rod will pop out when the pedal is let go. I took out the rubber piece and stuck a hood bumper (the one on the left).
