Concentric Slave Cylinder Installation
Aside from the fact that CSC’s are (like the clutch and flywheel) are naturally subjected to wear and tear, most CSC failures take place during or immediately after either fitting or bleeding. Proper installation of CSC is a must. Here are important notes.
|Refer to the vehicle’s original manufacturer CSC installation and bleeding procedure. Use the specified hydraulic fluid and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for tightening torques of the CSC.||While CSC installation may seem to be generic procedure, recommended procedures and hydraulic fluids ensures compatibility and lessens the likelihood of installation errors.|
|Clean old gasket (or replace with new), dust off connection areas and clean the input shaft on the transmission and inspect for excessive wear.||Dirt deposits can lead to assembly errors.|
|Completely replace damaged CSC||Repairing a damaged CSC is impossible. It is highly recommended to replace CSC when replacing the clutch or removing the transmission to avoid costly repairs shortly afterwards.|
Incorrect fitting, bleeding, and installation of CSC will lead to seal and clutch damages. It is important to follow the original manufacturer’s installation instructions for best CSC and clutch care.
