DDM clutch is on its way..........
yep the razzle dazzle special just for us !!
anyone have any input , advice , hints or suggestions
instructional pearls of wisdom ??
i'm assuming whatever the "special tools" requirement - its not specific to this ((1 )) car ?? is it.... ( yep i have the mechanic who asks where did i come up with this ?
)..he stuck with me thick n thin building whatever i read online so far -->.i can hardly wait to show him the clutch.- i'm thinkin ->.piece of cake for all my past brain farts ...and adventures-
i'm sure he has clutch tools .
.. my job is to provide a break in boredom from the soccer moms cars
the pieces parts , supplies etc - supervise lifting and cheer him on - make like i know stuff -
and surprise him /myself with the stuff i do know . THE STUFF I'VE LEARNED HERE @ HPTUNERS.... and surfin virtual reality
curious what is the general consensus on choice of replacement fluid ?
- oem , synthetic or is the oem fluid synthetic.... speak now... thats the only big decision lacking in my plan - least ways all i can think of CAN'T BE THAT COMPLICATED - but i don't have it yet so ???
i'm not aware of any one time use bolts or whatever - that i should have on hand - kinda assume if there was it'd be offerred by ddm ..lol...
if there is ...speak now ( link and part # if yuh got it)
i'm torn on the slave cylinder ( if its not a wear item and it ain't broke ) has everyone who has upgraded replaced it ??
seems some have replaced some line or upgraded some part of the connection - maybe gm upgraded later ?? can't remember...... what that was prone to leak ??? or what was suggested
again a part # or link would be appreciated- i hate guessing
pretty excited finally some progress on something i want
1 baby wedding , the other off to college - squeezing this in quick b4 XMAS kicks my butt ....
if the no slave cylinder is a mistake - ( not replacing it ) feel free to beat me down on that - shopped and $160 for i think the right part (that only has 13k miles on it ) and is NOT a wear item on it seems like something of a waste of $$
..actually thinking upgrade brake lines - no clue but wondering if brake fluid is shared seems that would make sense - or is that 2 totally different jobs ? draining clutch - would that drain brakes too ?? don't they share fluid ?? or am i confused
.....trying to do the forethought thing.... and ignorance is not bliss.........no doubt after the fact - i'll have learned something that would be nice to know NOW
........so your thoughts ?
i'm pretty sure the clutch will be a 6-8 hr job - depending on interuptions...
or complications ..lol..
if the brake lines are a major ordeal - totally separate project better saved for another day - tell me........i'm not looking to over complicate the day - but if we're there anyways ??? i'm thinking if brake line upgrade is plug and play no biggie -that might be a good idea-
just don't have a clue how time consuming..... or.....more impotant PIA FACTOR for brake line upgrade- anyone done that care to share
simple swap or knuckle bustin adventure ?????????
soooooo lotta questions - i know
the clutch delivery is due tues but since i go back to work wed - it'll be at least a week b4 i can shedule install - time for everyone to get their
the slave cylinder ??? forgot to ask when i had dave / mike on phone
if everyone else has - i guess i could be swayed - if dave has everytime - i could be swayed....
otherwise i'm saving those two bills toward something else - like braided steel brake line - still time to order that
or sticky tires ..hahahaha i want them BAD BAD too....
very excited ,ordered the dang thing 2 weeks ago -didn't realise custom job / cut to order - more bling yuh can't see
....oh well if its quiet and holds up to me and autox....
it'll be here in a few - going to be a long week waiting to get it in !!!!!
the pot of coffee is gone - enuff jabberrin
