clutch flex hose

Has anyone found a stainless braided replacement?

I've been meaning to do this, but I'm even more curious if anyone has fitted a remote-booster to the clutch. I'm assuming the kind used in some race vehicles would work fine and given the leg-pain I started developing after driving for 10h/day for a week I'm seriously considering it as an option.

Goodridge do them for some apps, http://www.paddockspares.com/pp/DEFE...300TDI%29.html

Any decent hose place can make one up.

As to the clutch force, have you changed to the later style clutch box as they have reduced effort?

Yes, but I'm not 100% sure I have the spring setup correctly as the box came without it. If it is reduced then hitting it a few thousand times a day is still too much repetitive stress for my leg and hip to take. None of the other manuals I've owned have taken anywhere near the force.

Not driven a truck before?

Have you driven another "stock" 300TDI clutch before to see if yours is wrong?

Not one with the assist spring, and either way the force is many many times higher than it has been on any other manual vehicle and there just isn't a reasonable excuse to put up with it when there's possibly a good solution.

The spring on the pedal should not be adding any measurable resistance.

Got a close-up photo of how it's supposed to go on? I was pretty sure I got it correct by virtue of it only really fitting one way without serious personal harm being a possibility when fitting it.

I can't see photos here at work... but I'm sure someone else can comment. I do know I changed the slave cylinder last week and without the clutch in the system pressing the pedal required very little force.
