clutch slave problems

I am having trouble refitting my clutch slave cyc now that I have chi heads and 4-1 pacemakers on the engine .
I am hoping someone has been though this and knows of a fix .
Also with the cyc can you change the bleeder from the top to the bottom as this will help a little .
Sorry that this is not realy a clev engine question but its because of a modified clev engine .
Thanks

Re: clutch slave problems

Yes, change the line to the top and the bleeder to the bottom. That'll solve your issues. It's an issue on some tri-y's too.

It's also a good idea to flip the slave over using some 28mm barstock or washers used as a spacers. This way the clutch line is no where near the pipes. I have done this succesfully and fitted 4095's no problems.

Re: clutch slave problems

I did the trick of flipping the slave over, spacing it out and switching the bleeder and inlet ports...
Used the dims posted by silicon
How the hell do you fit Pacemakers?
