Thanks for the reply, and the copy of Zafer's previous posting.
Both were extremely helpful, my clutch is "fixed" for now.
I had already ordered ( Monday ) both a master and slave
cylinder from PAP, $64 and $32 ea. and had them shipped
UPS Red. They came in yesterday, and I proceeded to
replace them both.
The master is replaced, but getting it in and out
took longer than I thought. By the time I got around
to looking at what it would take to rplace the slave,
it was about 9 pm.
The area the slave is located is well blocked by
the turbo coolant pump and the ABS servo system.
I could work around this, but it would seem that the
slave needs to have about 6 inches of clearance behind
it to allow it to come off the transmission. There is an
obstruction ( found by "FEEL" ) which was later found
in Bently to be the shift lever input to the transmission.
I suspect it will have to be removed and re-installed during
the slave clutch cylinder replacement operation.
Bottom Line: Has anyone here replaced the clutch slave cylinder
on an 86-88? 5k TQ. I have a slave in my garage, and would like
to put it in ( one of these days ).
P.S. For all those who have'nt, CHANGE THAT FLUID IN THE CLUTCH
