  • Clutch help needed

    Helping my son work on his 93 Jeep YJ

    Hydraulic clutch and it has an internal slave valve in the tranny with bleeder valve. The line coming from the reservoir going into the slave valve keeps blowing off. Ill bleed line by cracking bleeder, push clutch in, close bleeder and release clutch. Repeated until I got flow from the bleeder. Close bleeder, top off reservoir and close. Push clutch and pop it comes off. There is black retaining clip on the slave valve. I slide it up towards slave valve insert reservoir line and push retaining clip.

    is the quick connector on the slave cylinder or the line from the master cylinder?

    the connector may have been damaged when the original line was removed, this usually is caused by using the wrong tool to release it.

    another possibility is that there is debris in the catch of the connector keeping it from mating correctly with the line

    some quick research reveals this is a common problem and the quick connector is a real problem child

      The quick disconnect is on the slave cylinder. Ill have to research to see if their other options. I really dont feel like having to drop the tranny to put in a new slave valve

        is the connector attached with a threaded flare connection to the line?

          No its steel tube push on. The tube has flared to keep disconnect from coming off. I think I may have to delete the OEM disconnect. Maybe there is a kit out there or I need to make my own .

              Thats a good line that ssfishx linked you to. Be sure whatever you use is teflon lined to handle the brake fluid qualities of the slave cylinder. I have seen multiple people cheap out on the hose and a month from now it becomes sponge and has to be replaced again.

                Im wondering if I can mend the line by cutting off what I need, flairing the ends and put a Union on. Thoughts?

                  Assuming you have room to work and the correct tools it shouldn't be a problem

                    Leo! Thanks for find on this. Its what I ended up going with and the critter getter is back up and running. Took me two attempts to get a good double flare on the line from Slave cylinder. Since the Slave cylinder was internal I had very little room to work with

                    Had to take the master cylinder off to install new line
