Replacing-Clutch Master Cylinder

I am currently installing a new clutch and slave cylinder. In my instructions (yes i read them once) it say to replace the Master Cylinder. Why would i do this? My previous Slave Worked fine. Let me know what you think.
Thank You

Re: Replacing-Clutch Master Cylinder

I'm not sure, but when I replace a clucth assembly, normally I replace those components and the throw out bearing. I believe 1987 uses an internal slave/throwout bearing assembly. While you have it apart, you may want to consider converting it to an external slave, that's what I did with mine.
To replace the clutch master cylinder is unneccessary. If it is working properly, leave it alone. I would however replace the internal slave assembly if that is what you have, wether it is working fine or not, replace it.

Re: Replacing-Clutch Master Cylinder

Yes, My Slave worked, but the clutch kit that i purchased has a new slave, so i am going to replace it.

I will flush the master cylinder with new brake fluid just incase there are any partical they may damage my slave. Any other opinions?
