Re: Hydraulic clutch help

Are you on Facebook? There is a page called GM Square Body Cummin's Swap that has several guys who have swapped trucks. From what I'm seeing there they are using a Ford Master Cylinder NAPA part # 72176, and having a line made to join them to the Dodge Slave cylinder.
97 Dodge 2500 12V NV4500... way to much to list.

Re: Hydraulic clutch help

I used the bracket that was in the firewall on my 93 ram. Unbolted it and bolted it directly to the frame of my truck . I know that won't work for your app but I'm sure you can fit the bracket in there somewhere.
