    I was able to get everthing from the pedal to the throwout bearing for under $100. The only hose that is bad is the one from the resevoir to the master cylinder. Now all I have to do is figure out what clutch I am going to put in it, start my body work, paint it and put it all back together. That should only take a few months....

    cool deal, i got mine for under $60.00 /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif make sure you use a DOT3 approved hose for that. or you'll end up with hose particles inside your system. DOT3 fluid eats through regular plasic hoses. The dealer wants like 20.00 for that 10" hose. shop around and if you find another source let us know.

    I am considering a hydraulic clutch conversion for my 72 blazer - what applications are easiest to convert for this use?

    i belive that 87+ trucks came with the hydro clutch. I got mine from an 87 3/4 ton truck and some new parts from an 89 1 ton. they should all be the same.

    Where/how did you mount the master?? Is it next to the booster or elsewhere?? I need to install a clutch master on my '72 Sub because of the Cummins that is going in it, and was just wondering how others have accomplished it already.

    I mounted my master upside down. I'll look up some pics and post them or email them to you. I mounted it between the fues box and the steering column, right above the horn button.
