I got my separate Clutch reservoir from a 1990 ford ranger. $18.00 at any ford Dealer.
Got tired of waiting for the GTO reservoir to come in. The vette res. is way too much.

I like this one over the GTO. It is the same size (Diameter and fluid capacity. Difference is that the hose comes out of the bottom instead of the side.

1. Did your car have the 1st-2nd gear grind issue?
2. Describe how bad it was: Did it grind most of the time, some of the time, or just occasionally? Did it only grind at high RPMs (above 5000) or also at low RPMs? Did it ever not want to go into 2nd gear?
3. Most importantly, DID IT FIX THE GRIND, only make it better, or not help at all?

This info is important to the many people who have the grind and are disparately looking for a fix. I regularly see posts from new owners (2012 MY) who have the grind and are going through the dealer bullshit that many of us have experienced. So if you have installed one of these cylinders, please take the time to relay your experiences before and after with the grind.
Dude aside from posting the before and after videos and doing an update a week .. I dunno what else I can do for you.. But to answer your question for me it worked like a charm no more grind..

Just for some feedback, I co-own Dyno Tuned Performance in Va. Beach and have installed IdealG's master cylinder on my personal SS and it works great...resolves all the issues that he has stated. The extra resevoir is definitely something that should be done as well. I had issues with the 1/2 shift and the pedal sinking after sitting over night---both issues have been resolved.
Thanks should be given to the guy who diagnosed the problem and DID something about it.

Thanks again IdealG.

this thing works!!! I had a problem with the Katech LS9R twin disc clutch where as soon as I get on it the clutch will start sticking in (fall in) and no matter what I cant shift at high RPM (doesnt matter what gear, it wont shift at high RPM)

I installed this unit and it solved the problem by at least 90%.....!!!!

Thanks for this great product. money well spent (sucks that you have to pay $1800+ on a clutch and still have to buy other parts to make it work right!) we had ZERO problems with the stock clutch. but ever since the LS9R was installed we never were able to shift at high RPM (even slow shifting) until we installed the Ideal master cylinder!!!



I will keep you guys updated. will be testing a little more tomorrow!

GM should be comming to you and pay you for your R&D than make this fix on a large scale and recall all Clutch master cilinders. We should not have to be doing this fix on brand new Cars.

Although there might be a thread on it in another section I am curious to know if new ZL1 owners are having any issues and if they have swapped to an ls9 clutch or a more agressive model and had issues with sticking or grinding.

I have issues a varying rpm and would like to get on the list to get one of these units.
Thanks for all the info in this thread it is all very helpful and more responses from users of this mod would also help as well...

I wish lol. I know it sucks to have to pay for it but in my opinion it's better then in and out of the dealer several times before they do something about and then your taking a chance of someone messing up or scratching your car. I glad my master cylinders are working for everyone and we can all enjoy our cars now.

removing clutch master cylinder

I've gotten a request for instructions on removing the clutch master cylinder. Here's some helpful pics. hopefully they will answer your questions.
when you look under the dash you will see the pedal assy as in the pics below, its very easy to remove the cylinder from the pedal assy.

edit : Just to clarify something. I took pics with a pedal assy removed from the vehicle because it was easier to show you. you do not need to remove the whole pedal assy to remove the cylinder.
