Can't be the only one with this problem, surely others have overcome....
1275 & rib cage transmission into a Bugeye.
New slave cylinder requires a different hydraulic fitting than the BE
uses. Larger and may be different 'end' on the clutch line. Bell vs.
Hydraulic lines are smaller on the BE than the '67 Sprite, which the
engine/transmission came out of (less volume). ALSO the bore on the BE
master cylinder is different (smaller volume) than the rib cage slave
cylinder (greater volume).
Question: Would a new BE slave cylinder work with this transmission and if
so, which push-rod would be required; "short" or "long"?
OR...is there an adapter available that would allow the later slave
cylinder to be used using the Bugeye line?
