  • Clutch Slave Cylinder Modification

    THIS MOD ONLY APPLIES IF YOUR USING AN AEROQUIP CLUTCH FLEXI.
    Simple one this . The original flexi pipe on the clutch slave cylinder seals via a copper washer on the flat surface .
    However ive had a problem whereby it leaked or should that be weeping slightly.
    Its suppose to seal via a copper washer but was having none of it , I tried three different washer thicknesses and even made my own.
    Did it work --------- did it hell as like.
    I noticed that the Aeroquip flexi has a male taper on the end exactly like a bleed nipple and the slave has a female taper so they will fit together exactly like a bleed nipple does , trouble was the two didnt meet up as the pipe inlet on the slave was too deep ( or the pipe too short ).
    Anyway as a trial i removed 2.5mm off the flat that the copper washer is supposed to seal too thus allowing the two tapers to meet up.
    It now seals exactly the same way as the bleed nipple and hasnt leaked since .
    You can see where ive filed the alloy away in the pic
