Default '97 Chev. K3500 clutch master / slave cylinders...


Please f****ve the cross posting as I think it's appropriate here.

As many folks already know, the clutch master / slave cylinders used in
the '97 Chev. K3500 and presumably other related models are essentially
a defective design. The normal failure mode is a failure to release the
clutch, the clutch itself doesn't seem to have any issues.

As the clutch master and slave cylinders have been replaced on my truck
a couple times with OEM parts, and now they are showing signs of failing
once again, does anyone know of good non OEM replacement components to
use?

I'll be doing this next repair myself, and given that I have a fairly
complete machine shop, I have no problem using completely different
parts, even say Ford 350 series parts, and fabricating the appropriate
adapters needed.

Thanks,

Pete C.

It seems unlikely that both parts failed at the same time. You should
spend some time diagnosing the problem and then repair it. Since you a
wiz at fabrication why not fabricate a new truck and then put the Ford
parts on it.

Hmmmm......I've got a '96 Silverado 305, 5spd, that just turned 160k. I
still have the original clutch and master/slave cylinders. Never had a
moment's problem in that area.
