clutch master cyl upgrade

my sbc swap has been "done" for a while now and i have been dealing with the clutch but its time to fix it. the jeep master just doesnt push enough fluid to fully disengage the chevy clutch. i have tried searching and havent found anything. i know with the brake master a ford one will work, but does anyone know of a clutch master that will be close to bolting up with minimal mods? i would like to know a little more before i spend money and just buy one to see if it fits. my guess would be one for a chevy 1500 or f150. any help would be great!

I am running a 12 inch heavy duty truck clutch on my 350 swap and stock master works great on mine. No issues what so ever. Are you sure you are properly bled?.

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger and bigger....then it hit me!

Im running the heavy duty truck clutch too. We have tried bleeding it a few times with no change. Are u running a stock style Chevy slave cylinder? I though we did but can't remember, I may try reverse bleeding it this weekend. Could the fluid possibly be getting too hot? My exhaust is within an inch of the slave cylinder. I wouldnt think this is the problem tho.

Yes I am running a stock Chevy slave. When I bled my system I opened the bleed screw on the slave then compressed the slave plunger by hand. While holding plunger in the compressed position tighten the bleed valve then release plunger. Repeat this process as necessary.
I doubt you are boiling the fluid. My header pipe is running really close to the line also....but no issues.

well i tried bleeding the slave again but dont think it is any better. there was no air in the system. it really isnt that bad, just grinds a little going into reverse.
