I ordered a replacement slave cylinder through proparts USA, and it's been on back order since early september! Proparts says the manufacturer hasn't provided them with any information about why the cylinders haven't been delivered, or when they will be.

Is anyone else having this problem?

I'm tempted just to return the clutch MC they shipped me and buy tokico goodies as a substitute, but that would be an extra $150 for brake & clutch cylinders.

There is a problem with the above.

949 sells Exedy SC636 which is billed as the '90-'93 clutch slave
Other vendors sell Exedy SC825 which is billed as the '90 -05 clutch slave
I can't find any information about the difference, but I have a '94.


Also, I'm trying to avoid paying shipping twice.

The difference is the shape of the end of the rod that hits the release fork, functionally there is no difference and the newer model will work on the older cars.

Two things I'm a sucker for, brand names and year-specific components.

I could just rebuild the old slave cylinder until I can get a hold of the cylinder I really want.

Thanks for the info about slave cylinder differences.

Use the old rod.

:dunno:


Rebuild kits run ~$5 and it takes less than ten minutes on the bench.


Edit: If you like I can make a five minute drive to the local AutoZone and pick up an OEM replacement for you, maybe proparts can't get them because they're all sitting on the shelf in auto parts stores.


:p

Step one:
Buy new slave cylinder at parts store like AutoZone/Advance and buy slave rebuild kit.

Step two:
Replace failed slave cylinder with the new one from parts store.

Step three:
Bleed the new slave cylinder.

Step four:
Rebuild failed slave cylinder and set aside for use at a later date.

Step five:
Bleed slave cylinder again.

Step six:
Bleed slave cylinder again.

Step seven:
Winning!
