    If I don't find a hydraulic bell housing soon for my 465, i'm going to try and build my own bracket for a slave cylinder. My questions: I have heard that to do this you need to run the diaphram style clutch. What is the stroke length needed on the slave? Also, when i get a flywheel, is it externally balanced??? Do I have to get a new harmonic balancer?? I've heard no, but just checking. I'm sure I have more questions that i will think of later. Thanks - Doug

    are you running a 400 sb or a 350, 400 are externally balanced while all others are internally balanced, strokers (350 with a 400 crank) would be externally balanced

    as for the other slave cylinder stroke I don't know, but I could check the stroke distance on mine tomorrow if nobody else knows, mine is not hyd. but the stroke needed could be told by the distance traveled on the manual style, if you are just going to mount the cylinder on the side of the stock manual style bell housing, pushing the throwout fork, I'll let you know if nobody else does sooner /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That would be nice, but i'm a poor college student with a friend that works at the parts store, and more time to build a bracket, then to buy one. Plus that didn't look like it came with a master cylinder?? Thanks though, i found some good reading on that site.

    I checked out that link.
    For about $150 they sell you what you need to mount a slave cyclinder on an older chevy bellhousing.
    That's all good, but what do you do about the master cyclinder? It seems like you'd still need to get a pedal setup and MC from the junkyard.

    My friend works at the parts store, i.e. I can get parts for cost. That bracket looks pretty damn simple to make. I made a bracket for my york, so something with 2 bolts should be pretty damn easy. Wish i could just find a stock bell housing for hydraulic. If ya'll know someone that is getting rid of one let me know. I'm also in need of a flywheel. Read my Raptor post here and you'll know why i'm doing this swap /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
