This is a pull style on I believe a T176
Picture won't load from phone, I'll get my computer tomorrow.

Novak makes a kit. They are a pretty reputable company. I plan to buy one of their kits when I do this. I'm sure you could source all the parts cheaper separately, but sometimes it's worth spending a little extra to avoid frustration.

Again, you need to specify which slave you're talking about meidsmoe. The slave doesn't mount to the transmission.


This is the 80s era CJ slave mounted to the same bellhousing that your T176 uses. The photo is from underneath looking upwards.





This would be the slave used in this kit from Parts Mike: http://www.partsmike.com/index.php/p...-and-universal

CSP...thank you! I bought a slave for the early 80s cj. This helps a lot with my dilemma.

If my slave doesn't work, I will break down and buy the part smile kit.

CSP, it is hard to tell from this angle, but does the slave cylinder sit parallel to the earth (on the same line as the fork)? Or does it angle downward?

There's a little bit of slope. Nothing more than the stock mechanical has at any given point since there is an angle change with the stock system as the bellcrank rotates.

CSP, it looks like I bought the same slave as you.

Quick question...when it is mounting, should the push rod be compressed into the cylinder...then the clutch pedal being depressed should extend it? I mounted it up yesterday and the clutch pedal didn't seem to want to push the rod when I had it in position.

Hydraulics are clearly not my forte.

Yes, when you push the pedal in it pushes the rod into the master cylinder, which pushes fluid to the slave cylinder. The fluid going into the slave cylinder then pushes the rod outward which pushes the clutch fork rearward.

Sorry to reserect a 4 year old thread...I am doing this same thing now, but I'm wondering....how do you bleed the slave if its mounted with the bleeder on the bottom??

You could probably bleed it like people bleed brake calipers that have been adapted to other applications and have the bleed screw on the bottom. They block off the piston with some type of wooden or steel block (caliper has to be compressed slightly more than the position it was in with the pads in place) and with the caliper removed from the mounting bracket and the bleeder tilted up, they bleed each caliper. They then remove the block that keeps the piston from moving, replace the pads and remount the caliper. For your clutch slave, could you remove the slave and use a large C-clamp the block the slave piston from moving? Air wants to go up and you need the bleeder facing up for bleeding but only for bleeding.
