Re: hydro clutch

first, make sure your master cylinder is full. if it is, then you likely just need to replace the master cylinder, which is much easier than changing the slave cylinder or clutch itself. I'm guessing the clutch is ok because if it went out the engine would rev, not stall. Look under the dash where the clutch pedal goes into the master cylinder and see if there's any signs of fluid leakage. It could be the slave cylinder instead, so look under the tranny and see if you see any fluid down there too.

Re: hydro clutch

you can add an external slave cylinder to any tranny with mechanical linkage, but i have no idea if you could do it with factory parts.

Re: hydro clutch

you can retro from what i've read, but after pricing kits it seemed just as if not cheaper to just go new for me at least. i just grabbed a whole setup from a place called CNC inc out in san diego. search around there are plenty of race places that sell conversion stuff.
