Clutch Master Cylinders and Parts

Is your clutch release not working as well as you'd like it to? Are you a slave to your worn out cylinders? Get control with a replacement master or slave clutch cylinder. Replacing the slave cylinder is a good idea when you are performing a clutch job. With a relatively low cost, the insurance of replacing it when you're performing a big clutch job is well worth the cost. The way a hydraulic clutch works is quite simple to understand. When you push the clutch pedal, it sends fluid from the clutch master cylinder down a hose to the clutch slave cylinder, which is mounted on the transmission. The fluid, which is under pressure, forces the clutch cylinder to push out a rod, which is connected mechanically to the release fork. When the rod moves, it also moves the release fork, disengaging the clutch, and allowing you to shift. Also be sure to purge the system of air bubbles at the same time.

Your pivot balls should always be checked when working on your clutch. If you need new ones Pelican has them.

Clutch Release Arms and Parts

The clutch release arm assists in the release of pressure from the pressure plate on the clutch disk. It should be checked for cracks, wear or bending and should be replaced when doing a clutch replacement.

Clutch Release Bearings and Parts

You should always throw out your old throw-out bearing every time you replace your clutch disc and pressure plate. A loud squeak when the clutch pedal is pressed in can indicate that there is a problem with your throw-out bearing. This can also indicated a flywheel pilot bearing problem as well.

Hydraulic System Fluid

Hydraulic fluid is the life blood of any hydraulic system, and its primary job is to transfer power. There are varying specifics for different applications. Check your owner's manual for your make and models recommended specifications.
