Could you use a "pull" slave cylinder instead of the OEM unit or the "Pancake" version? Honestly, I'm not sure about what a "Pancake" slave cyl is, do you mean the "hydraulic throw-out bearing" kind of thing? I think a "Pull" unit would be cheaper, and since it mounts on the outside of the bell housing/trans, easier to change out if you needed to.
I thought about a "pull" but it's awfully tight over there. The OEM would go right through the "H" upright. I wouldn't have anyplace to easily mount a "pull" version of the same style unless I start drilling and tapping on the cast bell housing!
Yes.. Pancake=Internal Hydraulic Clutch Slave Cylinder.
I need to put the battery right in that same area, so the smaller the better. I opened this can of worms this build when I moved the motor forward so my big ole clod hoppers had room to mash at the peddles (figured I should give myself the room this build!). That moved the arm right into the way of the "H" upright. If I wasn't running inboard suspension, I could move the rack and gain the needed space, but if the ideas from Bremms and Benny_Toe can pan out, this might be a moot point!
Is there a generic slave you were thinking about. I'm hesitant, but willing to move the "H" upright if a simple solution presents itself! Smaller batteries can always be had!
Thanks for the info!
