    I have manual clutch pedal in my jimmy that I am converting to hydro.I have all the hydro stuff installled except hooking up the slave to the pedal.
    Does anyone have a picture how the hydro pedal connects to the slave?
    I think I have to make a bracket and weld it to the pedal and wanted to see what the factory set up looks like.

    Thanks for the measurements,I'll check to see if my slave is in the right spot.I guess my question should be is there any differance between the manual on hydro pedals?

    It doesn't seem that the slave will conect where the manual linkage connected.
    Also where the manual connects to the pedal it pushes more towards the floor than the fire wall.I would think that the hydro pedal had a different configuration that pushed more towards the fire wall for the slave.
    It doesn't seem to hard to make a bracket on the pedal.I just would like to see a pic of a hydro pedal set up for ideas on how to fab a bracket.

    I just checked my slave with your measurements.I think maybe my slave is to high.I dont have flat area on the fire wall to move it too much.Any pics of a slave mounted on the fire wall?
    Here is a pic

    yours looks way too high. it should sit on that raised section near the fuse panel

    Thanks for the pics ,that probably whats wrong.

    I'm going to lower it tommorrow:) Maybe with the different slave angle it will line up with the pedal better.
    Hopefully that one more thing I can check off my list to get my truck ready for ECCB.
