Mechanical to Hydraulic Clutch???????

I have a question about running a mechanic clutched tranny in a hydraulic clutch truck.
I am building a V8 S10, 350 SmallBlock(I know I know...) well it was a factory 4cyl,4spd truck. I was planning on running an automatic trans until I got a good deal on a Muncie 4spd out of a late 60's Chevelle.
Here is my question, the trans in setup with a mechanical clutch...the truck is a hydraulic setup. I would like to keep the hydraulic setup to avoid having to fabricate a new pedal assembly,etc.
Does anyone know of anyplace that sells or makes brackets to run a slave cylinder on the tranny? Maybe some wrecking yard shopping is in order...but what cars should I look at for the setup that I am wanting? This isn't anything that is needed right now, but I would like to get all my parts in order asap.
Thanks for the help...

I would highly recommend running a hydraulic through-out bearing. They are by far the easiest to setup. Howe Racing makes one that retails for $140 complete.

I have a hot rod shop, and have uses this setup with a chevrolet truck clutch mastercylinder several times. The pedal is easy to depress, very smooth.

Try for the bearing.

Good Luck.

I have also used the speedway setup, works great. In the old days we used the setup off early to mid sixties GMC pickup trucks but good luck finding that stuff now, besides the slave cyl would probably not be compatible with the modern small master.
