    I am doing a custom clutch set up and forgot to take this measurement before I tore my truck down. I need to know how far the slave cylinder rod travels out when the clutch is fully depressed. Not necessarily the arm travel but the linear movement of the rod itself. If anyone can help me out with this information it would be greatly appreciated.

    Both my IDI rigs are in the shop, but I can run out there tonight and have missy smash the clutch while I measure it if you don't get it before. Lord knows when I'll get out of the office today. LOL

    I think it's 7/16" minimum, but that's rememory from a few months back.

    I tried to do it meself, which became an utter failure. One can not measure this by yourself.

    Well for future generations scrambling to figure out the answer to this riddle. I dragged my old transmission back under the truck and measured. My slave cylinder moves 1/2 inch. This works out well for me since the clutch i am putting in needs the same movement so I can keep it a simple 1:1 ratio.

    Well that sucks but at least you got your answer. I would have helped but I'm an auto guy.

    Sorry I thought you had your answer by now or I would have tried to measure it.
