Default T56 slave cylinder Vs T5 slave cylinder?

Hi guys,

When I put my lt1/t56 combo into my 84 Jag, i didn't think bleeding/getting the clutch to work would be my biggest problem :-(

I am using a Wilwood .75 master cylinder with a 1990 Camaro slave cylinder (1 inch bore). I had read that the 1990 Camaro slave was the same bore/stroke as the 1993 (the year of my t56), except that it had a bleeder nozzle.

However, I'm starting to feel like that is not the case -- i can barely get any clutch, and what clutch I have is incredibly stiff. Not only that, I blew my first slave cylinder. I'm starting to think that the bores are different between the two years, but I can't find any information on them. I must be moving too much fluid, but I don't see how that would be possible.

Can anyone confirm that the slaves are indeed the same -- or if they are different, what is the different bore size?

Any help would be great!

Tyler

I have the same issue, I'm running a 7/8ths willwood master and the metal camaro slave. I can't seem to get mine to bleed at all. The pedal will only move a few inches.

are you using the t56 slave, or the 1990 t5 slave? I'm really perplexed at the whole thing -- i found that my stroke is actually less than i posted above -- its really only .75" or so -- have you tried bleeding with the mityvac? i think i'm gonna try that next -- either that, or craft a longer push rod...

I endend up dropping my tranny to check how every thing is. I noticed that the clutch was not fully aligned correctly. I re-adjusted the clutch but can't get the tranny back in (i hate trying to benchpress it back into place).
