If your lucky, the bleed line on the slave unit worked it's way out. This happened to a 745+ rwhp car last summer at the track. I think they were able to fix it without tranny pull using extentions and crows foot to torque it.

Problem I have found is when your "A dimension" is + from stock it moves the slave seal out enough to eventually blow the seal from the slave housing.

You can get the info here http://mcleodracing.com/info/?id=5260
Get the info from the clutch manufacturer of use a press to find out how far the pressure plate needs to be compressed for full release. You can do the math and make sure your slave isn't being overextended based on your A dimension and pp compression.

Is anyone still selling a kit form solution with the GTO reservoir, hoses, end cap and bracket? If so please pm me a price or point me in the right direction.

OMG; Just saw this bro'. That sucks, man.

You're right, never ends with this vehicle does it? Are you going to upgrade the whole master / slave system? Any ideas what brand / make / model you're going with?

Although it seems this thread is asleep, if not dead, I continue to get on a daily basis requests for the remote clutch reservoir install kit I put together awhile ago. I no longer have any of the parts I supplied in the kit. In order to make up another "batch" of kits I need at least 25 folks to want a kit as some of the parts need to be purchased in bulk.

Just did this to mine today. Did mine similar to another person who posted earlier in this thread. It's amazing how dark my fluid was.

Glad to see all went well. Can't wait to do mine in a few weeks, I'll post a pic of my brake fluid when I pull it out and you can tell me if it was darker than yours or not. Mine looks like hell.

I emptied mine into a dr pepper bottle and took a pic next to another bottle. The car has 11000 miles on it and I'm sure the fluid has never been changed. Can you tell which bottle has dr pepper in it and which has brake fluid?





















The one on the right is dr pepper

Thats just how mine looks too, 21k on my ride, and as you said I'm sure it's never been changed. That will be taken care of very soon.

Hello all. Everyone's clutch reservoir looks great! I actually took it one step further and just got a billet one with a cap from some guy in Australia and it perfectly matches my black and silver muted underhood theme...
