    I need a part number or need to know where to get the rod that goes from the slave cylinder to the clutch fork. I've searched and cannot find it anywhere. Anybody know where to get it, and maybe a part number?

    you cant find a PN, because it doesnt exist, the slave pushes directly on the clutch fork.

    Every picture i have seen of a slave has a rod going from the slave to the clutch fork. So, i guess i don't understand it?!?

    i cant see a number on mine. but it is about 4.200" long by about.340" in diameter. the end that goes into the slave cylinder has a ball end ground onto it. The other one has about a 10* angle ground for about .400" long then a ball end ground on it.

    GM manual I've got doesn't break it down into anything other than the slave cylinder complete, so I don't know as you'll find just the rod.

    I used a long bolt.
    Cut the head off and round the end to seat into the slave's pistion.
    The other end with the threads is used to secure it to the fork.
    You will have to mess with the length of the bolt but just start long and grind it shorter as needed. Works like a champ!

    that part comes with a new slave cylinder, as does the boot. (from advance auto anyway)

    i went to schucks and napa, and neither one of them had the rod with the slave. Went to the stealership and ordered it today for like $13.50
