Remote Hydroboost

Well this is what i'm working on slowly...but i will finish it, now on to trying to put remote hydroboost on this thing ......


To start, have no room under the dash for the huge hydroboost' so i started with a chevy 2500 boost and master




Then got me a cheep clutch slave cylinder, it comes with boot and removable push rod Advanced Auto $20.00



I bent me up a little bracket that i will cut down to size later, marked the center and used a hole saw to cut a 1.75 hole in the bracket to fit over the threaded part of the hydroboost.



It was simple to cut the sides down off the bracket to make it look a little less home made, bent the ends of the flanges down to drill holes to mount the slave, i trimmed the push rod that is on the hydroboost, measured with the slave pushed all the way onto the shaft then backed off 1/2 in,



In the end, it fit together way too easy for grabbing a slave off the interweb that works, then using my ghetto fab skill to cut and bend the bracket from 3in flat,



In the end i have a 1in Wilwood single master cylinder and a 7in pedal pushing the fluid to the clutch slave cylinder mounted to a Chevy2500 hydroboost and master that will be mounted between the radiator and crank pully of the engine, the only thing left is to mount and plum the booster and pedal, then bleed, i have no doubt the slave has enough force to activate the booster, but it will be trial and error when adjusting the pedal throw, everybody knows that hydroboost is very touchy, but i will post back up to update.... i just can't believe i got this far, hope it helps someone..oh, they sell this unit complete for $1500.00 but i'm a cheep bastard....there i said it. Any questions or more pics just ask, don't flame me too bad for the lack of skill..nothing i have besides my wife is pretty..... :-) Landis

Thanks to Dott, this kit is now a reality, for those with no room for vacuum boosters or hydroboost. Hot rods, rat rods, etc...
