Where would i find one of those? Do i upgrade just the master cylinder or do i do the slave also? Thanks
If you're not making much power, just get a good clutch, and it should cure the disengagement problems. Bushings NEVER fix it. It's just a myth.I was gonna swap to an auto but decided i'd see what i could do with this setup first. Hopefully those bushings is all it is!
Yeah, keep that up and you'll soon realize that ALL of your syncros are getting strained in EVERY gear because your clutch is not disengaging. Fix it fast or start looking for a trans.Well i bought a new slave cylinder from Ford and it's still the same. I'm gonna check the bushings today and see what they look like. The only gear i can't go into when it's running is first so it only needs a little bit.
Well I just installed the Southbend Double Disc clutch and i think that's why it's not working. Before when i had the stock one it worked good to shift but it just slipped like crazy. Now i just need to fix the clutching problem and we're good to go!
Not to hijack
Charles, in your opinion if you wanted to stick to a manual what would be the best option? Change out the adapter plate and throw something like a spicer, or eaton fuller 6 spd. behind the engine?
I completely understand what your saying here, why anyone would ever create a hydraulic setup using plastic is beyond me!!If I had stuck with it, I had already started my way through wilwood part numbers on hydraulic throwout bearings and masters. With a good (read.... NOT plastic) hydraulic setup, I think consistency and functionality could be attained. Combine this with the fact that a REAL hydraulics setup would then allow you to run MORE plate load, and you would have the makings for a TRULY workable single disc for the street.
Look up Wilwood. Actually there are a bunch of companies that offer hydraulic slaves that fit behind the throwout bearing. Braided line out the hole in the bellhousing, little adapter plate at the firewall for a master.... and bingo, something that actually WORKS!
Do those parts fit right into their places?I have talked to numerous people about a hydraulic upgrade for my truck but havent found anything aftermarket. I ended up running a combonation swamps turned me on to.
I am running a master cylinder out of a 94 bronco (I think), it is aluminum. I'll see if I can find the part number somewhere.
as for a slave cylinder I am running one out of a 91 7.3idi it is still plastic but it is twice as big around as the powerstroke ones. I am told an aluminum one exists but I havent found it yet.
I have no problem getting the clutch to reliece
