I would suggest calling Mike Forte before making a final decision.

I am using Mike Forte's set up. Easy to install, low effort, works like a charm, 4,000 trouble free miles including several hours in a traffic jam. Give Mike a call.

Talking

I was going to until I saw Mike's outside pusher. Simple fact is hydraulics leak and if they do, which do you want to fix? One buried deep spewing oil on the clutch or one just sitting outside and a 20 minute fix?

I have Mike's kit and it works awesome for this application. This one might be a good alternative to other users. They offer it with an external slave as well.

I made my own master cyl set-up using the Fox pedals, but did use an external slave like Mikes. MUCH netter choice, adjustable, and easy to rempve from the trans if you have to take the motor/trans out. Yes, that may have to happen!

I built one using a Wilwood external slave and a Wilwood M/C. Very simple bracket to mount the slave, and the design is being used by at least two other FFR's. It has never leaked and uses the same geometry as a stock cable system., except it never sticks or wears out like a cable will.
That system from McLoud may be trouble prone, using a cable to pull on a specialized pull type master cylinder.
With something like a hydraulic clutch, you need to follow the KISS principle.

you might note that there are push and pull slaves available.
i believe that the slave should have a built in stop some don't
my brother sells hyd. slaves for his cranes they are used for the accelerator a little more money than the wilwood (pull) or the cnc (push). the name i can't remember but the slave piston will not come out of its seat it is captured by a stop clip.
Ford used an external slave for years on the f-series that also could be adapted.
and also the internal throw out bearings are all good as was mentioned if they leak it is more to fix, but as i said IF they leak.that will give you time to change the rear main that can leak also.

Mechanical solution

If you're looking for a lighter pedal and no adding complexity you may want to consider a clutch fork extender from Mike Forte. It is a simple bolt on that takes about ten minutes to install. It works on mechanical advantage instead of hydraullics. The pedal effort in my car is very similar to my Miata.

Connect MC to Quadrant?

For guys who have fashioned their own hydraulic clutch setup, how have you connected the MC to Fox pedals? Mount a pushrod somewhere or adapt a cable connection to the MC like the McLeod system shows?

Could you post some specifics on the parts you used as well as any other pics of the bracket you may have? Thanks.

a piece of angle iron, 1.5X aprox 5"long. You will need a 5/16-24 X 4" stick of all-thread, 1ea 5/16-24 coupling nut, 3ea 5/16-24 jam nuts, 1 5/16 bolt and nut to connect the heim joint to the bracket. Several AN type washers. You will also need the plastic end off of a stock Ford clutch cable. It is removed from the cable and bored out so the slave push rod will slide freely. It acts as a bushing and keeps the slave from rattling around in the cable hole in the bell housing. You will need to use Energy Suspensions motor mounts because that's what the bracket bolts to. I used to have a drawing showing all the dimensions, but it somehow disappeared from my computer. You will also need a Wilwood M/C, I used a 1" bore. This is for the Wilwood pedal assembly.

Space gain

The McLoud system offers one benefit for the RHD groups as the engine/transmission can be shifted more to the LHD for increased driver footbox room.

Hi Guys,
The push slave kit I have developed is to replace problematic other hydraulic release systems. Whether it be a hydraulic throw out bearing, or external pull slave, I've tried to make a better system.
The Wilwood pull slave works as you can see, but the piston seal and the shaft seals are both ""O-ring"seals. My experince with customer problems is that eventually they do fail rendering the clutch pedal useless and your car needing a tow home or to a shop and money spent to fix it....
I really am trying to offer a better product that serves you better.... It can't be all to bad, Kirkham copied it and sells it for $100.00 more than I do...
Mike

Thumbs up Low Profile

Hi,
I also have a low profile weld on bracket for the billet slave & fork. I machine the bellhousing for clearance of the slave making the slave about 3/8"off the lip of the steel bellhousing.

i have a bum knee and want something that will help with the pedal effort. will switching to a hydraulic make it easier to push? Or is the force the same? I have a slipping clutch and the heavier clutch I am going to will both my knee with street driving. What say you?

Listen to Mike. My buddy has a McLeod internal slave system on his GT-40 and it has failed twice in about 1500 miles. Both times it was due to failed O-rings. The last time was a month ago when we were running through Topanga Canyon. What a circus getting him turned around and back down to straight flat ground where a flat bed could pick him up.

Mark,
I have the Quicktime version from Mike with a push slave. He welded a mounting tab to the housing to bolt on the slave. I'll have it back on th road by January to see how it feels. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

One of my next projects is to change my Wilwood Pull Slave to a PUSH. It has started to leak at 6k miles. Now traffic makes me nervous.

I have always loved threads like this. There are so many ways to do things and so many talented guys here doing them.
Buy the proven solution from Mike (my final solution to many things)
Build your own from scratch (I lacked the talent for much of this)
Buy a really complicated and expensive solution (I have been known to do this, see my old threads on fancy IRS)
Buy and install things that others tell you won't work well (I have also done this more than once)

Always fun to see the solutions and cheer guys on.

Mikes Quick time solution

Here are some pics of the solution for Mike Forte for the Quicktime bellhousing and a push slave.

so Bob
that quicktime set-up
what keeps the fork off the pressure plate? that bolt to the back is that your adjustment?
when u look at this first it looks like a pull.
that cnc has i believe a 7/8" throw to the cylinder, is there room for adjustment at the hine joint.
it seems like it would need a return spring for the cnc to have some resistance to releave itself.

I bought this set-up five years ago that bolts onto a T-5 trans, no cutting. I got this slave setup from JMC in San Diege, Cali, which uses a CNC slave, and is a push-style. I Like that way better, as if it fails, you can always "dead-stick" the car home.



And here is my custom Master set-up, again using the CNC parts... (since this pic was taken in 2005, I have changed to an external resevior)



Both top and bottom are adjustable, so setting it up is great and gives me a perfect pedal position. I have a SPEC stage 3 racing clutch, and with this hydraulic system, it's like shifting a Toyota.

Stay with the external slave, do your research on what system to put together, and go hydraulic. You will never regret it, and it's worth the extra cost.
