Master to Slave Cylinder hose.

Hello fellow YJ AX15ers with the trusty internal slave :|


I've been poking around and have found a lot of threads on my slave and master cylinder and all the problems that I am having. I have not found an answer to this yet.


I replaced my Master and Slave on the internal AX15. I did not however, replace the hose that connects the 2 parts. I am having the common issue of losing my clutch hydraulic pressure about 3 days after I bleed the system. My guess is that the slave I put in is bad. That seems to be the common theme on the forums. When I bleed my system I get dirty brown and chunky fluid coming out. Is it possible that the hose I have is failing me and allowing air into my system while simultaneously falling apart on the inside? It's 100 dollars for a new stainless steel hose from advanced adapters. They also have the conversion kit to the external slave and it's around 5.5X the amount. I am waiting until July to do that. In the meantime, should I switch out that part? Anybody ever switched that part and

had success with the system? Should I just keep bleeding the system every 3 days until July, it's easy enough.



Thanks in advance!

The stock rubber line will break down eventually and swell when applying the clutch. If you're getting dirt fluid when bleeding after only a few days, I'd bet that's exactly what's happening.

Here's a good solution from Advanced Adapters. You can piece together the same thing for half the price if you're feeling thrifty.

Thanks! That is the one I am looking at and thank you for confirming what I thought I should do. I did not know that it would swell but it does make sense and finally I think this will bring some closure to my system problems. If not then will have to keep doing what i'm doing until I can put in a external slave mod.

Awesome, I can only find the Advanced adapters line and on the website it's 75 with 15 dollar shipping or 99 on quadra with free shipping. It's a little pricey but if it lasts 10 years, that 10 dollars a year. Still a good deal. I appreciate the reply!
