Where to buy hydraulic clutch fittings?

Yet another part missing from my order. Does anyone know where I can get the fittings to make a hydraulic clutch line? I have been to Oreilly's, Napa, and Advance Auto and can't find anything even close. I really don't want to wait for it from tellico 4x4, it's already taken 3 months to get the stuff I have now.
I thought I could get the fitting for the new slave cylinder, and use the old line. But, the old line is a heat shrink or something and I cant get the fitting off that's on it now. Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks
Adam

Ask Dunkleman off this BBS. Hydrolic(spelling[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]) fittings is what he does for a living.

Re: Where to buy hydraulic clutch fittings?

you could ask call around your town to find a hose shop, most towns have a local company to swag crimp or form those rubber hoses with different metal ends.

also try a foreign auto parts store, especially if your using a CJ hydraulic cylinder, its made by girling, and been used for years in MGBs,Jags, and a slew of other foreign autos

Re: Where to buy hydraulic clutch fittings?

try the yellow pages under hydraulics. start calling. if they don't, ask if they know who in the area does. you'll find someone.

Re: Where to buy hydraulic clutch fittings?

I just went and got a pre-made metal brake line , bent it myself and bought a flexible rubber brake line for the final connection to the slave cyl. Works like a charm !!

Quality plumbing, decent prices. Prompt delivery. Get yourself some nice braided, high pressure stuff you'll NEVER have to replace.

Re: Where to buy hydraulic clutch fittings?

Thanks for the tips. The fitting for the tj master cyl is a pin connector where you put the fitting in with an o ring on it the slide a pin through the side to hold it in[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. I got a fitting for the slave, which is threaded, now if I could just find a way to couple it to the old line. I'll keep playing with it.

Re: Where to buy hydraulic clutch fittings?

hey Gigolo,

I just happen to know that mid 80s 3/4 ton FORD Diesel trucks have that same fitting/connection ( the O ring and pin) with a formed plastic hose.

might be worth checking out.

although I think that fastening method is crapola

Re: Where to buy hydraulic clutch fittings?

Hey thanks! I agree, they suck. I don't see what chrysler thought was wrong with a regular thread type fitting. I'll check that out, I really don't want to get a new master cylinder too, of course I could always wait another 3 months for the parts to come![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Where to buy hydraulic clutch fittings?

The '80s fords used that set up and I beleive someone mentioned cutting the formed hose off and soldering or brazing regular brakeline fittings to the pin fittings.

5.0s and 4 speed = lots of broken parts!!!
