Slave Cylinder Shaft Length

Recommended Posts

I dropped my 86 comanche off at the mechanic this week to replace the clutch and throw-out bearing. They called me today saying that the previous owner modified the slave cylinder shaft by welding on additional length. Given the other things I've noticed that the previous owner has "fixed", it does not surprise me.


Can it be cut back to the original length? If not, how hard are these to find?

When I did mine recently, the new slave shaft was too short compared to the old one. The old one had a plastic cone shaped tip pressed on it to complete the proper length for the slave shaft. I removed the plastic cone from the old one and installed it on the new one and all is good. Your previous owner probably lost his or it broke so he welded on an extra length to make up the difference. it won't fully disengage without it.
