PARTS NEEDED for Hydrolic Clutch conversion?

i know i need the master cylinder, slave cylinder and the hose.....but from what years, engine options do i look for? this is for my 258 1985 cj7 w/t5

i saw a write up on the Monsterslayer web page...i forgot whos page that is...SORRY.....but i didnt see part numbers or stuff.....

Parts mike offers a kit for 190....but i think that a lil steep i think i could get those three parts for cheaper

Re: PARTS NEEDED for Hydrolic Clutch conversion?

I know the CJ's with the Iron Duke 4 cylinder came with them ('80-early '82). You'll need the master cylinder, slave cylinder, and a length of brake line to connect the two. Jeepsters also used a hydraulic clutch, but they used a funky chain setup. Just FYI, the master and slave will run you well over $100 new, I think they were at about $140, which is one of the reasons I rebuilt mine rather than replaced it. Also don't forget about the core charge at a local parts store, they'll nail you if you don't have one.

Get a Quadratek catalog and it shows all the parts and lists them with a picture on how they are assembled and their prices... i had to order all the mechanical parts recently but compared prices with other mail order companies and Quadra was the cheapest overall.

Re: PARTS NEEDED for Hydrolic Clutch conversion?

Or you could go with an after market setup like I did. I got the parts from a stock car parts catalog, the unit is a Wilwood set(Master cylinder, pedal assembly, and Slave unit) for $139.95. I had to make a bracket to mount the slave but that was real easy. It works great, no more linkage binding when crossed up, LOVE IT!!!
Check out DAY Motor Sports, Tyler, TX, 1-800-543-6238, or www.daymotorsports.com, get a catalog they have a lot of useful gear for racing that we can use off-road to.

Hope this helps.

Re: PARTS NEEDED for Hydrolic Clutch conversion?

I beg your pardon, Greg, but the very first lines of my Hydraulic Clutch Conversion page that you mention states

"This hydraulic clutch setup (MC, slave cyl. & hose) was original equipment on a 1980-83 GM (Non-AMC) 4 cylinder jeep engine."

That's reall all you have to know to get the correct parts ... anywhere.

I understand that Parts Mike issues a nicer hose with stainless steel tubes.
