MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Clutch slave cylinder
|The hydraulic connections on my 1275 track car are opposite to that shown on the Moss website - ie the [remote] bleed is connected to the end of the cylinder and the input [from master cylinder] is on the side of the cylinder. As it works fine I am guessing its not critical but would be interested in any comments.|
Did you have any trouble bleeding it?
|Having read of the difficulty of bleeding the system I was hesitant in breaking into the hydraulic system. However, after I removed the engine & g/box I identified that the braided flexible hose for the remote bleeder was damaged and required replacement. Also, after struggling to remove the slave cylinder I wanted to slot the top lug to aid refitting [and future removal].|
I bit the bullet and disconnected the input hose. After slotting the lug, I replaced the remote bleed hose. With the engine & g/box back in the car I easily refitted the cylinder and then bled the system without problems.
|Well it sounds then, like you've proved it doesn't matter where the feed/bleed goes.|
