    Hey guys!

    I went to the junkyard and pulled the pedals, and tranny from that 86 half ton. So, I now have everything I need for my standard swap less a few new consumables such as the pilot bushing, throwout bearing, clutch disk etc.

    However, the truck was missing it's clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder. Will any other brand / body style of truck's MC / SC bolt up? Or do I have to get one from an SM465 square bodied truck?

    you can buy them new or rebuilt at most any parts house
    may be a good idea considering the importance of those parts

    Dang expensive though :( Stopped by Napa on the way home, and they wanted like 300 bucks for the master cylinder, slave cylinder, and line.

    just for the heck of it, I looked on advance autos site, and the master and the slave were like 50something each. Didnt look for a line though.

    Basic rule of thumb for buying parts up here is to triple the price that it'd cost down there, lol
