Wilwood 350Z HR Clutch Master Cylinder Upgrade - Z33 HR 07-08

5 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Today I tried to install the Wilwood Clutch Master Cylinder as my oem cluych master cylinder appears to be leaking and also having drop pedal issues upon start up. However I quickly realised that the braided clutch line that comes with the cylinder is too short as our master cylinders are on the right hand side instead of left hand in which the cable length was designed for. Is there any way of extending the cable and how much of the existing clutch line am I supposed to replace with the braided line. Has anyone attempted this install ?

Sorry you are having issues, We sent one to a customer in a RHD car and was told it reached fine. How are you routing the line to the frame rail?

 

We are currently working with a member here to redisign it so it will work better in the RHD cars.

I recently installed the Wilwood clutch master and Z-Speed HD CSC into my car and I can confirm that the braided line that comes with the kit will not fit a RHD car...the master bolts up fine but the line isn't long enough to reach the slave.

 

There are a couple different options - follow the OEM hardline or re-route the clutch line.  What the guys did on my car was get a custom line made up that follows the path of the OEM hardline.

 

With the LHD cars, the line isn't long as all that it does is start from where the battery is on the RHD cars, run behind the left front wheel and then run straight to the gearbox (and that is no more than about 1.5 meters)...on the RHD cars the hard-line actually runs from the opposite side and it runs behind the motor, past the battery and then follows the same path as the LHD cars - when the new master went into my car my mechanic told me that the line was over 2.5 meters long from master to slave.

 

The easier option is to drill a small hole to the right of the VIN plate (top left of this image - http://www.zcarblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/_-013_1000x750.jpg) and then run the line straight down to the gearbox (just make sure that you insulate the line as what happens with our cars is that the OEM hard-line snakes underneath all that black plastic at the top of that image.

 

If you do get a custom line made up, just make sure that they use -4 and not -3 line.

Never done a clutch job before. Can someone explain why you can't use the OEM hardline when installing an HD CSC and MSC?

At a guess, it wouldn't be pressure related it being a hardline. I would think the hardline won't line up correctly and they dont have much margin to bend?

      Hi all, Thanks for the add. I've just purchased my 1st 370Z and absolutely love it. Quality car, quality performance. Looking forward to seeing everyone's Z cars.

      Start off small, go catback exhaust like invidia which is quite popular around here. I personally have a motordyne catback, and for the system itself, it is usually plenty deep and loud! If you do find yourself at one of the next car meets, swing by and have a listen to what exhaust tone you like. Moving forward with headers and test pipes like the US Z community do, they do tend to go over the db limit here in AUS, as well as become deafening whilst driving. It’s not like people dont so it, but it’s not tolerable for most. I would also encourage you to fit the catback yourself, it really isnt that hard and you save some cash installing it yourself! It’s only a couple of 12-14mm nuts and bolts and youre golden. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      HI damo-heato, I know it's been a very, very long time since this post was made but i came across it and was wondering if you still had all the parts for sale and if so how much would you want for them (I know the answer is probably no since it's been so long but might as well try). Cheers!

      Has anyone actually verified that a simple disk copy will work? Has anyone actually done it and made it work properly?
