I don't know why but I can't get a darn clutch in this car. I couldn't fit a hydraulic throwout bearing so basically I am stuck with a slave cylinder. The one I have is a pull type, and I am having to use a cable to pull the clutch fork because there is no room to mount everything. Now my question is how the heck do you bleed this setup. The bleeder is almost the lowest point in the system, so that doesn't work very well. I am so frustrated in that I have been trying to get a clutch to work for about two months now with no luck. Kinda hard to race without a clutch.

Are you running a GM with a blowproof bellhousing? Just wondering I came up with a set up for these with very limited space and cost about 20 bucks..let me know....towman

I use a little 2 bolt slave cyl. off of something like a 82nissan 200sx I think? just go to the local parts store and ask for that application this has been 2 or 3 yrs. ago but give it a try its very little and has 2 bolt holes thru the side of it and I mounted it to the bellhousing with a flat plate the stroke worked right and everthing give it a try and let me know what you think.....towman

Dode turn your cylinder until the bleeder is on the top,should have no problem bleeding.

i fit is not easy to get the bleeder high, then bleed it hooked up. Take the cap off of the m/c and open the bleeder. Lightly pump the pedal with your hand once or twice to get the fluid flowing. Have someone constantly adding fluid to the m/c. When you have a steady stream flowing from the bleeder, close it.Should be ready.
