I put a ribcase into my MKII, I used a flywheel drilled for a 1275 clutch,
full 1275 clutch package and the 948 slave driven by the later separate master
cylinder. I don't have any problem using the 948 slave with the standard 1275
pushrod that was attached to the throwout arm.I didn't find any adapter for
the hard line to the 1275 slave and as such was reticent to change over to the
later slave and line ($$- We be Cheap!)
