    Anyone know what the total distance traveled by the clutch frok is to fully disengage the clutch on a SBC with a T10?

    Need this to work out the maths to make sure I order the correct slave cylinder.

    I dont have al the parts yet so cant measure it myself.

    Any help gratefully received.

    Usually around 1". Remember, how far it needs to move varies by where the slave attaches to the clutch fork. The closer it is to the pivot, the shorter the travel on the slave needs to be. However, if you move the mounting point further out, it will increase leverage on the fork.

    The slaves that they sell in Speedway and the slaves from Wilwood are well suited for this operation

    Thanks Joe.

    I had sort of worked it out at about 1.25" but wanted to sanity check it.

    I have a Wilwood master cylinder with 3/4 bore and am going to use a 1" slave. Will report back on how effective this is.

    Many thanks
