Recommended Posts

so it was sooner or later that my master cylinder for the clutch would start to leak from having a stronger pressure plate installed with the valair clutch. i didnt have the funds to swap it out but now i have to and will get parts from somewhere soon. anyone have any suggestions?

I bought mine from Advance Auto. Dont remember brand or part #. I just asked for one that fit my truck and put that one on. I have the valair clutch and I think 3800# pressure plate for 2.5 years with no leaks so far. You definitely feel the difference between the oe and the Valair, especially stuck in traffic.

I would go for the southbend hd setup over the valair. I heard valair adapts the 1st gen trucks hydro's to our trucks rather than making an actual hd setup. It could be bs though.:whistle:

gave south bend a call and for $325 for pn HYD-X-1.50 98'-02' brian said the bores are larger on both ends and has a steel braided line/ adjustable shaft. the valair from another place is about $280

I'm also a stock hydro's with a Soutbend Con OFE disc and no issues here. Solid hook up and very good control.

x2 here also. Almost 6 years with the SB Con OFE on Mighty Whitey.:thumbup2:
