    Default Thanks StuSimpson

    Just a quick thanks to Stu, your advice for getting a new slave cylinder from the lift truck site was right on the money. It only cost $23.80, is brand new, and is the exact same part. Everyone else wanted a small fortune, and I couldn't even get a rebuild kit locally.

    My question is, how the heck did you find this info out? Just curious. And thanks again for the info.

    ---Not sure if he used it, but if you search for Scout 80 clutch cylinder on Google, you find this.

    Thomas,
    Thats alot of good info. The guys at my local parts places have been giving me the "deer in the headlights" look when tell them 63 scout. This will help, if I can take some parts numbers in with me.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Hey your welcome, no sweat. Didn't google it, but if that works for ya all the better. I have been around a long time and everything I know or forgot I learned from someone else who passed it on. No sense somebody paying $125 or $150 for the exact same part. Not going to mention any vendors but I think you know who I mean. They literally buy 20 or so of these slaves and mark them up $100 each. I guess if that is your business model......

    Default Got it

    Thanks D & B
    I'll order the Crown since it worked fine for you. ...And I agree with Stu...why rebuild an old one when you can have a new one for $20-30 bucks.
    I'd like to replace the rubber coated line just before the Slave too but I'm still sifting thru posts looking for the part # for that .
    Mine doesn't look good (cracked outer coat). I would hate to order and wait for the Slave only to intall it and have that line leak.

    I got a line for mine at a local speed shop, not cheap, 36 bucks but a better price than scoutparts or anywhere else online. None of the local auto parts places could help me on this.

    My recollection is that the flex line to the slave was a Jeep part that required an adapter fitting as the threads (or the flare?) were different. It was 7 years ago so my memory fails.....

    These days I would do hard line and be done with it, coiling the excess for minor slinky-flex, but if I were doing even a minor degree of offroading I would go the distance and do a rubber line.
