Re: add a hydro clutch??
what's up? i have an 83 cj7 with a 350 and i had to completely reinstall my hydro clutch because the jeep one wasn't strong enough. first of all, you have to change the bellhousing from the engine to the tranny to a hydraulic clutch one. i have no idea how much this costs. the hydro and mechanical bellhousings are different. then you have to purchace a number of things to install it. first you have to purchase a master clutch cylinder and affix it to the inside of your firewall, lining up with the pushrod that comes with it to somewhere on your clutch pedal. then you have to get the slave cylinder (the one that pushes the lever in the bellhousing) that matches the bellhousing. then i think you have to buy a new lever that pushes the clutch plate away when the slave cylinder pushes. after you get all of this installed, you have to connect the two together. you can't connect them with rubber (or at least i don't recommend it) and make yourself a new clutch line. i used 1/4 in metal pipe and a pipe bender with some pressure couplings (it's not pretty, but it works) so now my entire clutch system is chevy. but again, i installed mine from the existing jeep holes and setup so i had something to go on. then you have to bleed it and get the fluid through the system, this part was horrible. it took two people and some strong arms to get this one to work. i'm sure there's a better way, but us artillery guys aren't that smart, and we're deaf, too.
i don't know if this thing helps you at all and if i just told you what you know, i'm sorry. i did the whole jeep thing in my driveway and a lot of it was learn as you go. if you have any questions on how to do it or just want to tell me that i'm a pain, shoot me a message or an email.
hope i've been any help at all!
good luck if you do it.
