Push or Pull??

Application is SM465/NP205 backed behind an 88 350TBI motor. I'm debating on whether to go push slave or pull slave for my hydralic clutch setup. The bellhousing I have is from a 74, which did not come factory with a hydraulic clutch. The TBI motor also doesn't have many threaded holes in ideal places to mount a pusher (plus I have the oil pressure switch down there in the way). I'm kinda leaning towards a puller type, mounted directly to the SM465. Anyone have an plus's/minus's to add to either application? Does one style benefit more than the other? Can anyone share pictures of their application, specifically a pull type mounted directly to the SM465? I've got a couple pics of the push type already.

Re: Push or Pull??

yea, my truck is an 87 tbi, and it uses a push style push slave, i also got the sm465, its nice i also have the np208 which is good for my application, but yea i would get a bell houseing that had the slave cylender bracket or holes already in it, it would be easier. thtats what i have to say, but it sounds like a cool project, and i wish you lots of luck with it.
