I have a 1972 240z with an L28 and 5 speed transmission, all swapped before I got the car. I just finished a clutch replacement where I; replaced the rear main seal, pilot bushing, clutch and pressure plate, had the flywheel resurfaced and replaced the the outer seals and gasket on the transmission. Refilled transmission with Redline MT-90 and bled the slave cylinder with Valvoline DOT 3&4 synthetic brake fluid. I did all this just to find out that it was the hydraulic system, the clutch was fine. I believe my problem is that I ordered a 1977 slave cylinder however I for some reason still have the 'old' clutch fork with the hole for the adjustable rod. I thought no problem Ill just Swap the adjustable rod from the one on the car with the new one. I did this and tried to properly adjust the slave cylinder but was a bit confused by the fsm. should I push the slave cylinder rod all the way in and pull the fork to the back of the car then adjust the nut to 1.5 turns out from touching the fork? Will this setup not work and I should order a new '72 slave? The car is current on stands and when I start the car in first with the clutch in the wheel still spin.
******edit, one week later: seems the slave cylinders are all the same, even though the auto part stores have different photos for different years or car models.. i bought the "wrong" one, which had a larger outer diameter, and it worked perfectly. Hi! situation: I'm in a bind, I had to leave my car in a parking lot somewhere, and i need to fix the car and drive it somewhere safe like, ASAP. QUESTION: does anyone one know if the turbo and non turbo slave cylinder are interchangeable and if not, why? here is the story: I have a 1983 280zx. a bit of a Frankenstein, with parts from different cars, rebuilt by the previous owner. i was driving today, and I ended up stalling twice while trying to leave a light. the third time I realized i had a hard time engaging first. I managed to limp to a parking lot and realized that I had no more clutch. I looked, and the clutch slave cylinder is dead. it puked all over the place. The car is in a restaurant parking lot, I had to leave it there, and it'll spend the overnight there (at least, hopefully not more). I pulled the slave out, and it looks like this I made a bunch of calls, and the local auto parts could get me within a day the NON TURBO slave, which I believe looks like this I'm wondering if there is a difference. since none of the places have it in stock, if I order it I can't return it.. also that means i'll have lost a day waiting for it. thanks
