I was amazed what SELLERSRODSHOP did but I dont have the welding skills and he got some problems later on becaus the master cylinder was offset

changing that linkage out to heim joints should smooth things out a good bit. as far as the hydraulic setup, i cant help with the pull slave, but i've made a few of these master setups for guys & am installing one on my car right now (c4/t5 swap) . this is a CNC master, recommended on several sites, mounted in the original hole with good clearance around the stock booster.


inside, i made this bracket that wraps around & bolts thru the clutch pedal & aligns with the pushrod on the cnc via a heim joint:




heres a cross section view. helps to have a spare firewall section to set everything up with

If that is a 1" master, you're good to go. Anything smaller and you probably won't have enough clutch movement.
That Wilwood master cylinder can be a bear to seal where the reservior or remote adapter goes. It uses O rings and a wire clamp to seal against clutch fluid loss. When installing the reservoir or the adapter cap be very careful to not allow the O rings to twist in their grooves or it will leak at the joint. Try to install the reservoir on the MC before you install the MC in the car. It's much easier to prevent leaks between the master cylinder and the reservoir if you have room to work.

Very nice! What did you use for a firewall reinforcement plate? Which year T5 are you running?

Thanks,
Chuck

I bought mine from DazeCars and have been very happy with it. Very similar setup. Took a bit of adjusting and its in a cramped place but it works pretty flawlessly.

I like your custom bracket. Nice n simple.

I made a custom bracket to mount my resivior to the left of the master. I waned the cap to clear the cowl weld seam as well as be out of the way.

You can see it mounted in the upper right.

More pictures would be GREATLY appreciated!

Do you have any information and diagrams on your slave cylinder mounting bracket? The bellhousing and clutch fork position on the 94-04 T-5s are different than the Fox T-5s. I am using a 94 T-5, which means that the nice mounts DazeCars has available won't work for me.

Thanks,
Chuck
