Clutch dust under pressure in bell housing blows by the seals in the clutch cylinder, and contaminates the fluid. Seems like I saw a GM study that the air pressure in the bell housing caused by the fly wheel and such rotating at 6500RPM is why the dust gets into the fluid. Did the ranger method on my GTO, and my corvette. That clutch dust is bad for the fluid, and having tied to the brake Reservoir is so wrong.

I installed the cheaper kit with the plug last week and took my car to the drag strip Friday night. I was getting more runs than normal. There was a 15-30 minute break between runs. I did have one run where I got some pedal sticking and at one point the track officials wanted me to back off from the staging lights as there was some problem at the end of the track. I had to really muscle the shifter to get it into reverse. Later this reverse problem fixed itself.

I also noticed while giving my engine some cool air, the clutch reservoir had dropped down. When I got home, I saw no fluid leaked out. So I moved it back into place and cranked on the screw. I hope it doesn't move now, I am afraid of stripping the screw.

A question for you guys changing the clutch fluid. Are you draining the whole system or just suctioning out the reservoir? Same question about the brakes too.

I use a turkey baster to empty... 30 pumps on the pedal... and then repeat after hard driving. As a matter of routine I just change the fluid once at fill up.

Just got my kit in. Think I will do it this weekend and us a vacuum to change all the fluid in clutch and brake system. Don't know if I will even notice a difference, but I do know it gives me a great excuse to spend some time under the hood this weekend.

If you are referring to our kits, the difference is that the stage I comes with a cap to "cap off" the clutch line on your current Brake reservoir, and the stage II comes with a brand new brake reservoir with the factory molded cap still in place.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards
