hydrolic clutch conversion

Postby deputyvaughn » Wed Mar 02, 2011 12:18 pm

I have a 1962 CJ5 already modified to have a M151 drive train. I was thinking about trying to install a hydrolic clutch slave and master cylinder using parts and pedal assembly from Mazda or similar truck with similar equipment. If it works out I might add the brake master cylinder and booster. My fear there is the drum brakes won't take the added PSI on stopping.
Any thoughts or practical experience?????????

Turns out the Brake booster upgrade was the easier of the two. Got a Nissan Sentra booster and master cylinder installed. To do it I had to do away with the floor pedals and subsequent undercarriage linkages. I also had to rebuild an already decimated firewall and install pivot type floor pedals from a Mazda PU. This assembly will also facilitate the Clutch master cylinder. The next step is to work out the clutch slave cylinder......
stand by.
