Default Clutch slave cylinder DIY

He only replaced the internal piston and spring. Which rebuild kits were available, haven't looked in a while. At least it's good to know the rebuild kits for prelude/accord would work.

I have a Legend slave rebuild kit a a spare, but it sure is good to know that there’s an option.

That's what I figured he meant. Just wanted to clarify for anyone thinking the slave cylinders for the Accord and Prelude would be a direct bolt in plug and play.

The masters were being done the same way when there was a shortage. The only additional step taken when rebuilding the masters was to take a wire cylinder brush the same bore size and run it through the cylinder to remove any potential debris before installing the replacement cylinder.

Yes Chrispy, just the internal piston and spring. The bleeder valve is too small.

UPDATE: Worked great for two days and then I started losing fluid again. Inspected today and found the rubber hose under the fuel filter that joins the two hard lines has sprung a leak. I guess the higher pressure from new parts was too much for the 25 year old hose.

Thankfully Advance Auto can order than Clutch Hose and with shipping its only $38.

Paragon also makes a braided stainless line to bypass the clutch damper. It might just be me, but it seems like the shifts are crisper.

Yeppers. You can do either/or. If I'm not mistaken the damper has the same port thread as the master. Definitely worth $19 if they are still charging around the same price.

Hey guys, I know this thread is pretty old but I have to put in my 2 cents here--

Definitely consider swapping to Dot 5 Silicone brake fluid--as an auto restorer, this fluid is frequently used in place of Dot 3 or 4 traditional fluids. (Be sure to perform the swap as outlined below!)

Silicone DOES NOT absorb water the way traditional Dot 3/4 fluids do, which is an advantage, and will prevent rust and deterioration in the lines and bores of your cylinders. The military and USPS use it for this reason--auto restorers too. When you see NASTY black discolored fluid you KNOW your bores and lines are rusting. Iron oxide is an abrasive and every time you step on the clutch you are grinding your cylinder bores and ruining the seals. In the name of preserving the cylinders we have, swap to silicone for 0 RUST! I'm sure you've all opened up brake or clutch cylinders to find nasty brown or black rust-mud? It's a horror show. Just wonderful to have in your hydraulic systems.

To swap you can drain the old fluid, then run 90% rubbing alcohol through until it is clean and clear, drain again then bleed through Dot 5 Silicone until it is clean and clear again--this is how it is done on classic brake systems. I personally would disconnect the lines, blow them out after each step, and go through these procedures separately on each part to ensure cleanliness, which is no big deal if you're already rebuilding your cylinders.

Dot 5 is more expensive but can be had for about $20 a quart (at last check) if you buy bulk on ebay.

As years pass, sleeving the bores will become an option that we will have to exercise should the bores be pitted and no other options are around. Classic brake shops should be able to do this--check out Hemmings Motor News or google search brake sleeving or something like that.

BTW Thanks for the info on the Prelude/Accord internal parts--that stuff will be around for decades.

Ciao guys!
