are you all running stiff clutches??? the reason i ask is because i have no problem with my south bend zf6 in my chevy but i have a ford with one and i have a stiff valeer(sp?) clutch and it has broke several. I think its just from having to apply more force and putting that little plastic bushing under more stress

I need to replace that white plastic retainer. To rotate the master cyclinder, do I need to disconnect the Hydraulic line, or will it rotate at the fitting below the reservoir? If I have to disconnect it at the quick couple, will I lose fluid?


It would be really sweet if all I have to do is rotate the master cylinder 45 degrees, slide it forward a little to pull the pushrod out of the pedal, pop the new white thingy on the pushrod, and slide it all back together.
