Well you can't buy just the plastic elbow. You have to buy the whole hydraulic line from the master down to the slave. $66 on fordparts.com. The part # is 7A512 if anyone needs one.

Thanks Ford! I'll try new o-rings first.

it's got to be the o-rings, hopefully that will stop
the leakage.

False alarm. I spray simple green all up in there and hosed down the whole tunnel and transmission. There must have been a lot of brake fluid ontop of the trans and up in the tunnel/body panels that kept running down. As of right now, it's not leaking at all.

I would have it on the road all ready, but I'm waiting for some pypes m-80's to come tomorrow. Mine have cracked all the way around the weld on the muffler body.

I recommend a weak vacation for anyone doing a clutch install. The little things really slow you down, like eating, sleeping, etc.

Installed my RST 1000 miles ago and it took a while to break in, I would say every bit of 900 miles, but it is beautiful!! Such a light pedal, and plenty of "feel" and grip! It does smell with a little slipping quite quickly, like going up my mechanics ramps, but McLeod says this is normal.
