slave cylinder

i am using a hydralic clutch pedal set up out of a 86 camero in my 1966 elcamino. i was wonder how far the rod going into the slave cylinder off of the pedal, needs to go in when the pedal is pushed. right now with the angle i have the cylinder at it moves in about an inch or inch and a half when the pedal is fully pushed, is that enough?

clys

the cylinder at the pedal end is called the master cylinder
the cylinder that dose the work at the clutch end is the slave
now from your post there is about 1-1.5 inches of travel
is that with the pedal on the floor ?
the push rods on some pedals have some adjustment
but it only sets the pedal hight
down at the working end there will need to be a little free play
between the slave and the clutch fork if it is over adjusted the
thrust bearing will be constantly driven this will lead to early failuer

As long as its enough to dissengage the clutch. You will find out quickly enough when you try it the 1st time. If you can't get it in gear or it grinds going into gear, its not pushing far enough. Like Ian said, you don't want constant pressure on the throwout bearing as well.

when the pedal is to the floor, the rod has gone into the master cyl 1"-1 1/4". i need to find out if this is gonna work because i am finishing the firewall and if i leave it the way it is and finish it, i dont wanna have to cut it all out and reposition the masrer cyl. right now i have it mounted at about a 45 degree angle slopeing upwards. the reason for this is because the flat plastic mounting plate on the master cyl is at a 45 degree angle and i just blted it flush to the fore wall, now i am not sure of what angle the firewall in the camero would have been in the lelation to my firewall. if anybody on this forum has a mid 80's manual tranny camero, can they please check how much the rod from the pedal goes into the master cyl when the pedal goes to the floor.

thanks very much.

slave

its my best guess that the top of the resivor must be level but not always having said that can you make a wedge to make it sit horisontal this would be optimum and you will hold alittle more fluid heres an idea go to the car yard and pop the hood then tellhim your not interested
