    Clutch Bleeder

    Hey guys -

    I'm about to replace my master cylinder, clutch line from plastic to ss, and slave cylinder. I really want to install a clutch bleeder on the slave. I have not been able to find one. Which vendor sells one?

    Thanks.

    I think Hervey was the only one to sell them. Wish another vendor would start selling one. I have Hervey's and it works but it looks like he brazed some parts together.

    I concur - it looked shoddy when I got mine many years ago, and sure enough it leaked so I ripped it out.

    I was disappointed as bleeding that bugger sucks, but at same time I also vividly remember Dave Swingle saying this mod adds another point of failure... he was right!

    Had my Hervey 9 years---never leaked---simple/quick to bleed

    I believe that DeLoreanGo is actually working on offering a replacement for this part. Arran mentioned to me back in January that he was several weeks away from something on this front. Haven't seen it on the website yet though.

    I have one sitting on my shelf that i bought off hervey. I remember not using it because it is a copper pipe, not braided stainless. He sent me the part not as advertised.
    if you send me your zip I can mail it to you if you are interested

    I got his old type with braided stainless. I wonder if copper pipe would hold the pressure. Don't know what normal pressure is but if something jammed pressing hard on the clutch I guess could produce 2,000 PSI

    You don't want copper tubing in a car. The vibration makes it crack. It also doesn't take a double flare well. Steel tubing or hose is the way to go.

    I Pm'd you. I could probably use it as a working prototype to make my own.

    Yeah.... I've been talking with Arran about them, but his supplier seems to be dragging their feet. I was holding off doing the repair until I was able to get one, but I'm getting too close to the summer and need to get going now.
