But there is and your on that thread, For the cost of a second reservoir and the regular changing of brake fluid you have a much better clutch pedal, One last thing this part is a Holden part so if it was good for them its good for US.

Brake Reservoir



I finally added my brake reservoir. I was torn between 2SSRS and flht99bs location. Both are good locations and I would like to thank both of them for all their help. I think Im going to replace my reservoir hose though. It would look better with a little more slack in the routing.

Next up is a remote bleeder for the system.

Does anyone know where I can get a new piece of brake line tube. The stock piece will not reach to my new location.

That's really nice and clean. Looks like the vehicle came stock with the reservoir. Good job.

Conversion went smoothly on my V6. I was surprised to find on that the AY6 had a remote bleeder built in for the clutch.

It's not 1/4", I think its metric- measures 9/16". 1/4" is to small.

Here's a good way to level the reservoir using thick nylon washers. Just file the washers to the angle you're looking for. I used stainless steel bolts/washers.

Looks like that's something I just might have to do. Perfect idea!

Thanks 2SSRS for starting this thread! I ordered mine today from Midwest Auto Parts. They said it was on backorder, hope it does not take long. These little suckers can be hard to find. I will post a pic when done. Anyone want a HD video of how to install this? I can make one if needed.

Any more pictures of different installs of the reservoir ??. Curious if anyone has come up with a different solution than the 2 different mounting locations detailed in this thread. It may be in all my head but since I installed the GTO reservoir, changed to DOT4 fluid and bled the system my clutch pedal feel and shifting are smoother. Anyone else notice an improvement ??

Here are some pics of the custom brackets I made for the reservoir and battery terminal. I wanted to install it in a way that looked like a factory part. I cut the brackets out of 1/8" Aluminum plate. I mounted the reservoir to the bracket with a couple of blind screws from the local hardware store.The new bracket is mounted to the front mounting whole in the master cylinder using the original screw. Haven't installed the new terminal bracket yet but should have it done sometime today and will post up some pics.

As long as you replace the fluid, You will have smoother shifting, And you will see that you fluid does not get red like the OEM.

Nice install TC. I've been wanting to do this mod but wasn't happy with what people have been doing, but that's just me. I had the idea of fabbing up a bracket and mounting it to the reservoir somehow, but your idea is looks good.

I take it that the stock hose is plenty long enough to reach the new spot as well? And was moving the battery cable over necessary?

The stock hose is not long enough. It takes about 16"- I think the original hose was only 14". I purchased the new hose from a commercial truck supplier. 3/8" triple wall, I believe the OE is metric and could not find the right size. 1/4" is a bit to small.
I have Procharger that came with a relocation bracket. Problem is that I put a much bigger filter on than which came with the kit and the inside is being smashed by the terminal.
