Q. For Tdi Guys

(This completely applies to tdi Defenders)

All Disco 1 clutch hard lines NLA(obviously, D1 is worthless to LR).


Trying to make my own, running into a couple issues. FTC5072 slave cylinder has essentially the same threads as the master, but not quite. I think it's a coarse thread vs. fine thread issue.

Basically I need to get 3 lines for the setup.

Clutch master to flex = hard line
Hard line to hard line = flex
Flex line to slave = hard line

If you've done this in your defender, I want to know what fittings/ lines you used.

I will send you some Vermont maple syrup, none of that Maine BS(Josh!) for whoever gets me all I need to know!

If the fittings from the D1 are ok, you might built a new hose and use the old fittings. It cost me about 80$ per flex hoses from an hydraulic shop and most of the time, they have inhouse the original fittings.

Hope this helps.

Why don't you go to the auto parts store and buy all of the different sized fittings, then you can determine which ones you need. It won't cost you more then $10 probably. You could also probably get that line from a breaker in the UK for next to nothing, I doubt it is a big selling item.

Whats the matter ? Stuff costs 20quid/$31. I know this guy in Vermont that if you order on Monday he can usually have the part on Friday.....want me to have him call you ? Some battles aren't worth fighting, buy the parts. Cupronickel tube and a double flaring tool will cost more than the factory parts
Clutch master to flex = hard line http://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.ph...er_dsl_lhd_dis

I ran into this a month ago. Napa has a short hardline that was an M12 to NPT that fit at the slave. I then ran a soft line around the bellhousing to the drivers side where the V8 hardline is.

I hate this setup but needed it to get the truck moving and testing it. I bought the Tdi hard line from you guys that runs across the bulkhead and down the right side to the clutch.

you could try RNQ074 & PLH628 (im so kind to give you RN P/N They are for a Defender but you could give them some new bends to fit the disco.

I also remember a lot of the fittings were 7/16-20in

Just to clarify, I am fully willing to buy new parts. I checked all the normal suppliers with no luck, I'll check your submissions Doug.


I don't have any lines to go off, besides some hard lines for defenders in stock that I may buy for the fittings.

Zack, the hard line at the slave is superfluous. I put the flex hose right into the slave cylinder port and ran it to the existing stock line.

Port threads should be M10x1 or M12x1 if they are the larger ones.

M10 is too small, M12 is too big for the master, it's in between...

Zack, I remember having a bitch of a time with this. I wish I could remember what combination of fittings we used, but I do remember that it involved a small "pigtail" hardline right out of the slave, then connecting to a flexible rubber line to the hard line running down the firewall.
If I remember, they are not NPT, but the Euro equivalent.

To further complicate matters, I think the were three choices of slave cylinders, each a little different.

Can you put a thread gauge on the inlet to the slave?

Damn...well it is apparently not 1/4" line....close but no cigar.

Found a fitting in stock that fits the slave, and have one that fits the master. Now to find the stuff in between.

If you have the right fitting at each end, you should be able to make all the lines pretty easily. By the way since we are on this topic, can you tell me which is the correct slave cylinder to fit a 4 cylinder LT85 and what clutch lines I need to mate it with my NAS SIII master cyl
