Sorry to hear about the patch on the expansion tank - hopefully what's underneath won't be too bad!!

Thanks, hoping the same. The rear suspension on the car seems to be built like a tractor

Default Help

Ladies and Gents, hoping someone can help here.

I ordered (2) Raybestos CSK1359 clutch slave kits and mentioned on other posts.

the stock diameter of the slave measures 24mm, while the CSK1359 measures 20.5mm - no where near a fit.

Either I am doing something stupid, I have a different slave, or its been reamed.

Or, are you guys taking the barrel apart and swapping the rubber bits?

I think you have the wrong replacement parts. I have had good luck with GT parts, although I have not rebuilt my slave. I did replace the master though.

I just got the rubber from GTCP and have had no trouble since (from the clutch slave cylinder).
I do remember the rubber seal needing a lot of stretch to install and fortunately it survived the process without damage.
However my clutch slave cylinder, which I believe is original, looks different (old and new seal shown).

PS One advantage staying with OEM parts is no need for lengthy engineering discussions.

I think I found the rubber bits, but I should be able to find a 15/16" piston and swap it out right? Does the length of the piston have any bearing on the performance? I cant see that it would...

Too short a piston could wedge itself stuck and too long a piston interferes with the travel, but I suspect the range of piston lengths that would work is quite large.
That is as “deep” an analysis I can give without having the clutch mechanism in front of me for half hour or so.

Thank you Laust. I found a 15/16" slave with double seals from a Pontiac Fiero (Getrag). Very inexpensive, I will see if it works when it arrives.

I believe the original clutch slave is really cheap. Why the reconstruction?
