    Manual clutch to Hydraulic clutch A-883 4 speed.

    Has anyone ever converted their Manual clutch to a Hydraulic clutch? It looks way too simple to do and it seems to eliminate all the linkages and Z bars? I'm looking at the brewers performance Hydraulic clutch kits.

    I've always liked the feel of a manual clutch pedal personally, but hydraulic sure does seem to simplify things.

    I've only ever done one conversion. It was on a Mustang at work, using a vehicle specific kit to eliminate the trouble prone cable and adjusting quadrant those cars had. Nice thing about hydraulic is, it's self adjusting, eliminates all sorts of linkage and you don't get "clutch leg".

    Yeah I'm dreading putting back together the manual clutch linkages. Might just skip that part and go hydraulic lol
