REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 through 7
Do not spill brake fluid on the painted surface of the vehicle!
- Raise the front of the car and support it with jackstands. Be sure that it is supported securely.
- If necessary, remove the rear gravel shield to gain access to the release cylinder.
- Remove the clutch fork return spring.
- Unfasten the hydraulic line from the release cylinder by removing its retaining nut.
- Screw in the threaded end of the pushrod.
- Remove the release cylinder retaining nuts and remove the cylinder.
We recommend replacement of the master and clutch slave cylinder as an assembly (one can be replaced without the other) for proper reliability and performance
- Installation is performed in the reverse order of removal. Adjust the pushrod free-play and bleed the hydraulic system.
See Figure 8
- Remove the pushrod assembly and the rubber boot.
- Withdraw the piston, complete with its cup; don't remove the cup unless it is being replaced.
- Wash all parts in brake fluid.
- Replace any worn or damaged parts.
- Replace the cylinder assembly if the piston-to-bore clearance is greater than 0.006 in. (0.15mm).
- Assembly is the reverse of disassembly. Coat all parts in clean brake fluid, prior to assembly.
