Hello,

I have a slight problem with my Advance Adapters clutch slave cylinder bracket. First, I had to cut the tube part and half the length of it so the slave boot and hardware could even fit on. And the slave when compressed upon install, would constantly be putting pressure on the throwout bearing. This isn't right...I called AA and the guy said "Add a return spring". Easier said than done...Do you guys have any hints? I can add a spring, but will need to go get one from who knows where. How did the factory do this and not use a return spring?

Will

I did what they did here

- Shortened the bracket for more clearance because the flywheel is thicker. I cut about 3/4 an inch out and welded it back up so now everything fits and the clutch should work as intended. The pushrod only stick out like 1/4 an inch however when the slave is compressed and the free play for the TO is set. Hopefully this wont cause any problems as the clutch wears.

So now the returning is the only part that I am stuck on...
