Nicely done Grasshopper.

With purity of heart a blind man can see. To achieve perfection you must search both Heaven and Earth. An empty hole is unknown in value until you fill it. Free yourself from the the bonds of the Earth to find perfection for your Clutch Reservoir installation.



perfection

For some reason looking at the new reservoir installed made a lot more sense than just holding it in my hand.

actually it looks like a little bit of rust on the nut.. the shape is intact if you look closely.

OH man... that nut was a B!TC# to get on... I had to use the impact wrench to loosen the threads on the stock struts before I could get it on the Pedders coilovers with hand tools.

Both of them were way tight... IIRC they are a lock nut so they get tighter the further down you go....

Because there isn't a separate resevoir. It shares the brake fluid resevoir.

This! we get some nasty clutch dust contamination from the shared reservoir.

Separating it keeps the brake fluid... cleaner...

Yes you want a separate clutch fluid reservoir. you don't want contaminants in the brake system.

And if you drive a standard transmission, the clutch fluid picks up a whole lot of clutch particle dust from the slave cylander. The fluid needs to be changed out occasionally.

I used to use a baby's snot sucker - looks like this, to suck up the old fluid and then add fresh fluid in the clutch reservoir.

i understand why you want separate reservoirs & the whole clutch dust in the fluid & all...
but you're telling me that y'all's cars have a combined clutch & brake reservoir?!
that just seems like a ridiculous lack of engineering right there

and for mine, i have a big kitchen syringe with the tip of the needle cut off flat i'm guessing y'all typically just do the ranger method do clean your fluid?

Lololol. Had to say it, just cause mine look about the same. I did the same thing with my stock strut, run that damn nut on and off a million times so it would get tight on the xa's. Pete and his extreme tolerances.... ;-)

Yeah.. GM saved... what.. about $1.00 in their build cost combining the reservoirs? Or.. they wanted to make more money selling reservoirs over the parts counter...

most do the ranger method.

I pity the people who havn't seperated the reservoir's and drive their cars normal.. not knowing that that crap is gonna get into everything Clutch and brake, at some time. That's gonna be an expensive fix if you left it for a few years of normal driving and didn't know about it..

Some, like me added the Tick Performance SS bleed line. I can flush the clutch fluid in under 5 minutes through the entire system, not just the reservoir. I do it after every race.

I already replaced the fluid from the Camaro fest.. and have my ABS working again now, too.
