    I was not happy with the choices to mount a hydraulic clutch master, so I designed and had laser cut my own. This uses the excellent Wilwood master - this includes remote reservoir attachment for a very good price.

    You will need to currently modify the pushrod; we will offer a replacement rod in the future; I attached some pix. Will offer the 1st batch (only 4) at $29 plus shipping. Later batches will be more. Email me direct at m@scarebird.com with questions

    does that even work with such a steep angle?

    Maybe we are missing something here...I don't have nor have I ever thought about putting a hyd clutch on my car but even I am wondering about the angle. Doesn't the pushrod from the clutch pedal come out almost horizontal from the clutch pedal, and the slave cylinder is mounted at about 45 degrees down?

    no, it goes down at about a 30* angle for best engagement for hydraulic - I'll pot a pic of the rod/lever engagement to show this later.

    Yea, post up a pic, I'd be interested in seeing how that works. In my previous post, I was just going off the angle of the stock pushrod to Z bar angle, which is just a few degrees down.

    This is a mockup of the setup; we machined the shaft to barely fit inside the master, so it would give us the exact angle needed for maximum efficiency.

    Will this work with the stock hydraulics from a LT1 sourced t56?

    Wilwood sells several different masters, match the stock GM master diameter and you should be good...

    work on a 1975 Firebird?

    I have a 75 Firebird with 400 pontiac and 4 tube headers.
    What would I have to do too make it work on that. Same as a 75 Camero?
    Thanks,
    Walt
