Progression of Master/Slave Clutch Cylinders

Oh..what a JOY!

First, to get to the master cylinder...random parts had to be removed...dont even know what half of them were...some of them were smell tested, for fuel..or brake fluid..or whatever they were..no smell...:| Whatever..doesnt matter..they were put back afterwards anyways..

Some of the clamps and hoses were ragged..and very fraile..

I WD-40'd the master cylinder feed line and waited it out a few hours before starting..cause it looked reddish from the rust that was collected on the feed line connector..

After a few hours...or maybe 10s of minutes..who knows..i got at it..i unscrewed the pedal from the master cylinder..and took out the main shaft from the master cylinder, that way it could fit through the hole in the firewall with more ease..after struggling for a few minutes..it made it through the hole..and it was bolted back up..

Car's front was jacked up and put on 2 stands, i started unbolting the starter...god what a huge monstrosity it was too I dont think ive ever seen a starter that big...and HARD to get out...had to be hammered out..

After that was done, the slave was taken out..but with my luck..i knew SOMETHING had to go wrong..and sure enough..it did.

The line feeding into the slave cylinder..not the "Feed line"...but the "clutch line"'s connector to the slave snapped off...the line was very frale and rusted to hell at the end..panicing..me and my 2 buddies ran to the local home depot to see if they have connector types, we tried 1/4" of an inch..but it was too small..and there was nothing else that would fit..so we got some tape and put it on the grooves hoping it would hold..it did..but it fell out

Now the problem is that i need to order this "clutch line' as well..and i cant fix my car without it..because porsche had to be SPECIAL..and make it some weirdo size that ive never even heard of...oh well...

And i also have a question...how fast can i get the "clutch line" from pelican for a 1983 model 944? I need it ASAP.

they are very helpful. give them a call. maybe it can be overnighted
better to find the rusted line now instead of during a failure on the highway, eh?

Take the metal line off the car, take it to a shop that does European cars and ask them to make you another one.
You might have to search around a bit for a shop with the right pipe and union size (unless you can save the existing unions).
Maybe a Bosch Diesel shop might have what you need.
The thread size is METRIC so nothing else will do.
