Hi Everyone - I am setting up the new transmission and bellhousing for this year and need some help finding a slave cylinder. What GM vehicles had the hydraulic push type slave cylinders? I have the lakewood bellhousing and would like something that would bolt right to that. I tried a 95 chevy truck and it's a completely different design. S10's? Any other ideas? What are you all running?

Aftermarket...stock type. Uses a regular throwout bearing and heavy duty fork. I could go with a hydraulic throwout bearing, but would prefer to run the slave cylinder. I have a self aligning high dollar throwout bearing, and would like to use it...

After some frustration, I decided to go with the Afco push type slave cylinder and run my regular heavy duty fork. The clutch came from 10,000rpm and they told me that I need a "round face bearing with at least 1/2 inch travel." They said Howe has a good one and to call them. So, I call Howe and they have two is round face and has .375" travel, and the other has a different face and .750" travel. So, I called back 10,000rpm and they had no idea which one to use. So, I am going to run their throwout bearing with the Afco setup.
