Extension doesn't seem to be available for the 2010+ Camaro.

I reached out and asked and they said they do not have any intentions of doing an extension for our years due to the way the trans are set up in our cars

Well that sucks! Wonder why the trans makes a difference as the fitting is in the bell housing?

Not sure either, but it must be enough to make it not work. I'm still tempted to order it and see if I can make it work when I get ready to do this mod.

Yes ... One of the other things I can remember about the engineers mentioned in many threads, who designed our cars to the smallest detail.


Fortunately, there are people with common sense who can solve these engineering delicacies.
Which I applaud

Still can’t understand why Tick says the trans makes a difference? The stock bleeder IS a fitting extension, so why couldn’t they make one like it (as they’ve made for other trans) seeing that THEY ALREADY MAKE a braided cable with a fitting that fits the slave! So the reason can’t be an engineering one. I think the real reason is Tick just doesn’t want to go thru the effort/cost to make an extension and have to retro fit their braided cables for it.

So I unless I’m missing something I’m calling out Ticks reason for not making the fitting extension for our cars as

Still canít understand why Tick says the trans makes a difference? The stock bleeder IS a fitting extension, so why couldnít they make one like it (as theyíve made for other trans) seeing that THEY ALREADY MAKE a braided cable with a fitting that fits the master cylinder! So the reason canít be an engineering one. I think the real reason is Tick just doesnít want to go thru the effort/cost to make an extension and have to retro fit their braided cables for it.

So I guess Iím calling out Ticks reason for not making the fitting extension for our cars as
It wouldn't even have to be extended.
It would be enough to rotate the cylinder and create other holes in the bellhousing.

Simply put the bleeder made more accessible.
And not create it at the most stupid point on the transmission - under the chassis .
Especially when it's a busy place for car maintenance.

So why couldn’t you drill a small/medium hole for it in the bellhousing??

So I’m not understanding what George did to make it work.

I did the same thing as the others. I used a remote Tick bleeder.
I'm just saying it's just foolish invented.

Yep! They contacted me back as well when I asked if they sold one. their answer? "no".

OK, well I'll put the line in the hard way eventually. It might wait until I do the clutch, maybe not.

On another note, I think some on the thread were thinking they didn't offer a bleeded. They do!, they don't offer the extension from the slave to the bleeder hose that help with installation.

Don't overthink it fellas, you can do it without tearing everything apart or needing the extension.
