Remote Clutch Slave Bleeder
10/01/05 George Pasek

Having to replace a leaking clutch slave cylinder on my 78 Spitfire I realized that now would be the time to deal with the future bleeding of the system. I ran across a tip by Reed Simmons “Making Clutch Bleeding Easy”. It seemed like it was the way to go so here is my contribution to his tip; a parts list and photos. The photos should be pretty much self-explanatory and the parts were purchased from a local Bumper to Bumper auto store for about $14, including tax.

  • AGS BL312 3/16 x 12” Brake Line
  • EDE 272330 3/16 x 3/16 Brake Adapter (two required)
  • EDE 275300 3/16 x 3/8-24 Metric Union

P.S. While I had the tunnel cover off for this project I used a 2-1/2” hole saw to make an access hole for the transmission fill plug on the right side. I then made a cover for the hole using a 4 x 4 electrical handy box cover and a couple screw clips. Now checking/changing the oil is simply a matter of pulling back the carpet and removing the access cover.
