Clutch master and slave

Everyone scared me pretty good about the PITA the job was. One and a half hours later=done. Piece of cake. No more pee on my left foot.

If your fittings come apart well, then you're in the clear. Otherwise, you're in there with no clearance trying to get the things apart. If this was too easy and you want a PITA, replace your heater core next weekend!

Huck- I have peepee on my left foot; just found my master is leaking and need to replace. Did you replace the slave just as a precautionary measure while you were doing the master- or was it shot too?

I replaced them both even though the master was the only problem. Contrary to what some say, I found no need to undo the brake lines. I just kinda pushed things out of the way the best I could. I didn't bench bleed either. That probably would have saved me ten minutes of bleeding.

thanks Shane- I'll be doing the same this weekend. Will try it without disconnecting brake lines.

Youll need a buddy inside the truck to align the pedal to the hole while you pull and twist from above. Be careful when bending the brake lines out of the was as to not break them. Remove the pedal cover. Remove the 13mm bolts to the brake master so you try to shove it out of the way a bit to create some room. Keep in mind where the adjustment is on the old master and adjust the new one accordingly. Don't tighten the nuts on the new one until it is installed in the truck and you are sure you like where they are at. I made that mistake and ended up grinding down a wrench to make it thin enough to not grab both nuts at the same time.

Good luck

Take the 2 nuts off that hold the brake master to the booster and then you can move the brake master out of the way easily and not mess with the brake lines. Gives the room needed to make the job a lot easier.

The only thing to be careful about is to get the pedal height and the clutch freeplay adjustment correct (its in the manual). The rest is fidly, but not hard. Nice job Shane.
