Slave Cylinder Leak

The slave cylinder on my Mustang is leaking REALLY bad. You should see the PS fluid on my garage floor. It always dripped a little but lately it's to the point of repair or replace. I bought a seal kit for it, but I would like to see a blowup of the cylinder before I start. If anyone out there has one or knows a site to find it, that would be great. Better yet, a step by step process of replacing the seals. Thanks.

The Mustang is a '65. They use Type F fluid. Any help on finding a blowup for the cylinder?

slave cylinder

i did find the fluid specs on the hyd. clutch system. use either dot3 or dot4
brake fluid. not ps fluid or trans fluid. these oils will attack the rubber cups in the system and cause a leak. if you can find kits to overhaul the clutch cylinder and slave cylinder. these parts will have to be cleaned , use alcohol
to clean. there should no sign of oil in the system before rebuilding. if you can dissemble the parts just lay the parts out as you take them apart.you will see what the oil has done to the rubber parts.--good luck

slave cylinder

to start out- mustangs from 1964 to 1972, had mechanical clutch linkage. the slave cylinder did not come in till 1973 with the mustang ll. so you can do what you want with this information. i think you dont know what year it is.

He's probably talking about the power steering actuating cylinder on the steering linkage.

I don't have a diagram. You need a service manual.
If you can figure out how to take it apart, the new seal positions should be fairly obvious. It's just a piston in a cylinder with some seals.
