External Slave update ?'s
Alrighty...so I've got the newer tranny installed...that was easy. Got a brand new clutch bolted up to the flywheel, again, that was easy. That stuff literally bolted in. Now for the part I'm not real sure about. I've got a brand new Master/Slave assembly (one of those all one piece pre-bled units) waiting to go in as the last piece, but I've run into two little issues.
The bolts that secure the clutch master cylinder to the firewall are much closer together on my firewall than they are on the master for the external slave unit. I think I can drill new holes in the mounting plate that sits against the firewall.
The hole on the end of the shaft of the master cylinder where the peg on the pedal goes through is much smaller on the new unit than the old one. I think I can drill the hole out, as it looks like it would need to go from 3/8" to 1/2" in diameter.
The other option that I can find is to buy a '91-'95 pedal assembly (I found several on Ebay for about $50-$70).
What have other people done? I'm not real interested in drilling holes in my new $100 master/slave combo and finding out it's not going to work worth a damn with the old pedals anyways for some reason, but I don't want to spend $70 on new pedals if it's not necessary. I know I'm not the first person to do the internal to external slave swap, but I didn't read about any issues with these parts in those threads. Maybe the other write-ups were about '91 and up, as it seems '87-'90 YJ's ran slightly different pedal assemblies than the '91-95's.
I believe I've been clear enough for anyone familiar with this swap, but if I haven't let me know and I will post pictures.
'90 YJ - Squirrel powered and on 35's!
