    What all do I need for a hydraulic clutch setup? I understand a new bellhousing is needed - what years would I look for that?
    What other parts would I need?

    Well, it's been awhile here, but I think I used the clutch slave cly and the slave from a late 80's S series truck. Not sure it's been about 10 yrs. I used my old bellhousing and made a braket that bolted to the bellhousing. It worked well. I used pure Chevy parts on the install. GoodLuck, GOPHERKILLER

    I have the part numbers...

    I am converting my truck to hydraulic using the factory pieces. I have the part numbers for everything but the bellhousing and the actuator. I am going to use a Lakewood Blowproof for a 84-92 Camaro (PN 15020) and the actuator and fork from the same.
    GM still has most of this just ask for part from a 88-up Blazer. If you want the PN's I have, email me captkaos@wwisp.com

    If your looking for used parts, full size '86 and up had hydraulic clutch. Don't know how early they started, but 86 was definitely hydraulic.

    That is the years that==>

    That is the years that are still availible for GM. Sorry for the confusion. I believe '84 was the first year for hydraulic clutches.

    I think it would be easier to use a hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder.I think Summit has these for chevys.Brady

    get in touch with advance adapters, they be able to help you out. but as brady said, maybe using a hydraulic throwout bearing will work. i know a friend had one for a camaro, but i dont know how they work in 4 wheel applications....anyone?
