Hydraulic clutch hose

Im replacing my clutch master cylinder, and unlike the newer jeeps, the 88 is not available for purchase as a sealed complete system that comes pre-bled. The clutch master cylinder is seperate from the hydraulic line and slave. I am worried that when i loosen the fitting on the clutch master cylinder that im going to break the hydraulic line because it is rusted pretty good. The hydraulic line is not available at any of the local parts stores. Does anyone know of any chain stores or other places that might make or carry a hydraulic line if i bring them my broken one? The hydraulic line im referring to has a metal brake line for the flare at the fitting and turns into a hydraulic hose to bend around the trans tunnel and then back to a metal brake line for the fitting at the slave.


88' YJ 4.2l. 5spd. stock. except the color (Kubota Orange)

You can make your own. You can make it from hard brake line, or soft brake line, or have a length of hydraulic hose made by any hydraulic shop (yellow pages), just don't make it out of any soft hose that will expand from the pressure, even pressure fuel line won't work.

Here's an example of an installation I did about 2 years ago, the cylinder is different from yours, it's a double acting cylinder and the front hose is only used as a vent. The rear hose is connected to the master cylinder - it all works great

I had to replace the line when I did my slave cylinder. If you break it they can be purchased online (4WD.com or Quadretac) or from the dealer ($160 bucks, ask me how I know). One important thing to know when removing it is that the nut on the slave end of the hose is fixed to the metal line. It does not spin, the nut coming off the slave cylinder spins only. Get some good flare nut wrenches and good luck!

All other things being equal, the simplest solution is the best.

My buddy got one at the local Napa, somewhere in the $60 - $80 range.

That was a complete rebuild - I don't like working in grunge, the whole thing looked like that.
