I have a good working R380 out of a '96 DI that had 117K miles on the odometer. The truck was owned by a long time customer who is a British car nut. Aside from this '96 DI he also sold me his '94 DI a few years ago and still owns an '04 DII Trail Edition, a TR3, '67 MGB and a Jensen Healey...
I noticed today in the parts manual, that there is a spacer plate FRC2402 on the clutch slave cylinder for the R380 with most engines, including the 300tdi. I have replaced the clutch slave on 4 different trucks with this combination, and have never noticed this plate installed. While I can't...
Was replacing master and Slave Cylinder as Clutch pedal was rock hard and could not press in.
When i removed the slave cylinder the push rod was not stick out, and as i tried grabbing it, it fell into the area and I cannot retrieve as my fingers are about the size of the whole.
In midst of my first project - replacing the MC, flex hose, and slave cylinder on 1990 200 TDI
MC is back in and the pedal is adjusted
Now I am trying to put in the new slave and it seems to be too tight. Is it typical to have to force this in? It is a touch spot to get to - I removed the...
Proud new owner - 1990 TDI
Unfortunately, upon receipt of the vehicle, I found I could not shift. Clutch pedal does have resistance and MC reservoir low but not empty. No signs of leaking from the MC.
Vehicle history - rebuilt LT77 by ashcroft with new clutch and clutch fork.
Party in England...
Can anyone confirm on a Td5 / R380 combo if the Slave Cylinder is located on the rightside or leftside of the motor [or technically bellhousing] (as you sit in the vehicle)?
I know with a NAS 3.9 V8 / R380 combo it's on the left, standard R380 on the right, and R380-stumpy it's on the left...
I just completed a 300 TDI and R380 conversion and I cannot get the clutch to work properly. From what I can read the correct slave should be ftc 5072 and push rod should be ftc 3912 based on it being an earlier batch of the R380. I have gone back and forth between the 5072 and what I believe to...
1990 110 200 TDI
I can't for the life of me get enough room to get the torque needed to loosen the clutch slave cylinder's bleeder. I have been soaking it the last couple days thinking that would help in the cramped space, but cant get enough room/leverage to break it free.
I know members of...
I have a new puddle of fluid under the truck. Looks like the MC gave up the ghost. Shifting action had been less than optimal lately but I figured it was because of the freezing cold temps lately.
My truck is a Bitsa truck with a 200TDI and a 93 body with an LT77.
Are all the clutch...
I have stripped a total of two threads in this entire engine swap... both of which had nothing directly to do with the swap itself. :facepalm:
This time, it was the in reinstalling the slave cylinder on my long LT77 bellhousing. I felt a bit of friction and made sure to hand install the bolt...
Mis-ordered this and AB won't take it back b/c i got most of the way through installing it before realizing it was the wrong one.

Has anyone tried wrapping the exhaust where it passes the clutch slave and the small S hard line?
It may be my imagination, but it seems that my clutch get a bit squirly as the truck heat ups in traffic.
I have also noticed that the fluid get a bit dark. The soft hose is about 1.5 years old as...

It doesn't look difficulty to do but I keep reading about taking the wing off. If I'm removing the entire peddle assembly and the nuts are captive, why does it need to come off? What can't I get to with the wing in place?
Any other gotcha's I should look out for?
Hi All -
Looking for some help diagnosing my clutch problem. My master developed a leak so i took it to my local guy and supplied him with a new master. He replaced it and it worked but didn't have the same throw/release points (needed to be closer to the floor). A couple days later, the...
