Post DIY 1969 Hydraulic clutch pictures and ideas to build a kit on early T5 transmision

I paid for all of this 170 bucks so its a big saving

got an incredible deal from High Performance Parts & Accessories - Car Shop Inc. and sold me this combo

I've bought so far:

heim joint in ebay for 3 usd

I was amazed what SELLERSRODSHOP did but I dont have the welding skills and he got some problems later on becaus the master cylinder was offset

changing that linkage out to heim joints should smooth things out a good bit. as far as the hydraulic setup, i cant help with the pull slave, but i've made a few of these master setups for guys & am installing one on my car right now (c4/t5 swap) . this is a CNC master, recommended on several sites, mounted in the original hole with good clearance around the stock booster.

inside, i made this bracket that wraps around & bolts thru the clutch pedal & aligns with the pushrod on the cnc via a heim joint:

Juit, with all do respect to your work, it is going to fail. I know because I did the same thing. eventually the master will wear because of the wrong angle and the stress on the plunger. then, it will break either the steel bar you have going from the pedal to the rod or it will snap the hiem joint.

I only say this, not to ctritcise your work but to make sure that you are not sitting at a stop light when it does. Your car will lung forward and hit the car in front of you.

I know this because I did almost exactly what you did and mine broke. It took about a year though.

Good luck my friend.
