Re: EA hydraulic clutch.. part hydraulic..?

What's so bad about the cable setup, apart from the firewall cracking, which will happen with a hydraulic setup as well.

Re: EA hydraulic clutch.. part hydraulic..?

lol ok thanks... i think in my cars lifetime the firewall has already been torn apart... heavy duty clutch in mine as well... might just put a new cable in and see what the story is... if i made it part hydraulic to a straight cable, the straight cable would never incur any wear... and in theory could be made quite easily?

ah well... i think not worth the $$$ anywayz

AU's still use cable clutches......

Putting oil in the cable is what stuffs them in the first place, they already have a grease inside them that will last for years. If the clutch is getting stiff, have a look at the clutch pedal itself, and make sure the cable going into the pedal and connecting to the fork arm is as straight as possible.

Re: EA hydraulic clutch.. part hydraulic..?

I'd honestly say there's SFA difference to the driver. I've driven both and until you pop the bonnet or look at the cable you couldn't tell. Only difference is you replace the cable in cable clutches, you bleed hydraulic ones. Not worth the effort or money IMO, unless you're putting a Supra box in or something.

Re: EA hydraulic clutch.. part hydraulic..?

Don't see why not, get a solenoid out of a starter motor. A BIG starter motor.

Uptake mightn't be very smooth though
