HOWTO: Clutch release cylindar push rod installation

Ok i put in my stainless steel clutch line (THIS TOOK FOREVER) as my hands are big, and that wasn't really the issue, the banjo bolt has to be exactly square, there is a trick to it, you just need to push all the slack toward the firewall so it stops, then it will line up properly.

Anyway on to the HOWTO !!!

Clutch Push Rod, which is 1/4 inch shorter so that the clutch will dis-engage more. It is picked up from
This is the piece i'm talking about

here they are side by side


Remove your intake, and battery tray:

next remove the clutch release cylinder:

now that is is removed manuver it so you can pull the boot off:

Close up of boot with stock push rod into it:

Remove the stock rod by pushing it out, and then place the new rod into the boot:

Place back onto the clutch release cylinder, and bolt everything back on, there is not bleeding nessisary unless you replaced the SS Clutch line with this as i did.

If you have any questions feel free to ask..
