Clutch Hydraulics...

My clutch hydraulics system is start to fail... I was starting at a traffic light and just holding my clutch down and the brake as typical.

The ruck started to push forward against the brake and grunt. I reached for the stick to pull it out of gear and it was bound up under tension. So I shut down the engine and pull it out of gear. So every time I come to a stop now I make sure I'm neutral.

But now I've heard stories about the hydraulic system that its a PITA to deal with. Can someone with experience guide me to proper replacement so I'm not pulling my hair out...

(Yes... Mopar1973Man is a on the learning curve again!)

Both valair and sb have preassembled upgrade kits available they both are direct replacement and are easy to install. Check with some of the vendors, I do know that DPPI carries SB product

YEAH! I got it done the first time! No air in the system and did it just about 2 hours!

There will be a write posted soon... You cannot believe how easy it was to do!

So far I've got 150 miles on it and it acts just like stock clutch the day I bought the truck of the showroom floor in Oct 2002!

So all the rumors of DON'T but the NAPA clutch master/slave cylinder are all false and it can be done so easy and cheap...

Sorry Dodge Dealers you loss another source of income!

Here is the write up...
