    Its a long time ago since I had a T10, and I did do a hydraulic conversion, it was a real pain to do as well, I had to make a bracket up to bolt onto the gearbox with a rocker arm so I could mount the cylinder onto somthing solid, I dont think I would go that way now, I would probably cut a hole in the bellhousing in the right place and weld a plate in so you could mount a slave on it, thats if there is room in the bellhousing to do so, Toyota or similar would probably work as its a bolt on slave, otherwise, the next option, probably the easiest, but the most expensive, buy a McLeod hydraulic throwout bearing

    Jonal,

    I have converted my T10 to hydraulic by using the following kit from Novak

    http://www.novak-adapt.com/catalog/kit_hcrc.htm

    It has everything you need, brand new, and from memory was about $270 all in.

    Looks expensive on the face of it but when you consider that you get the clutch fork, slave cylinder, pivot, brackets and push rods with all of the geometry and ratio's worked out in advance it doesn't look too bad.

    Got a Wilwood cylinder off the forum for £25 plus a rose joint and shouldered bolt to connect it too the pedal so all in I reckon it cost about £200.

    Cant report back on how well it works yet but should be in a position to do so in the next few weeks.

    Let me know how you get on.

    P.

    Cheers guys, both good answers. I will have to see if I can find someone heading for the states in the near future. Its a tough choice between the two so I might see if I can make up a bracket and do the second option on the cheap myself before I splash out now I can see what Im aiming for. My only concern is the amount of movement needed from the slave cylinder to fully operate it? Any idea? have you got it installed as yet Paul?

    J,

    That is the great thing about this kit, it is all there and just works. You just tell them what size bore you have on the master cylinder and they send you the matching slave.

    If you can hang on till the weekend I will get some pictures.

    As for shipping, get it sent USPS. They seem to 'forget' about the duty.....
