Re: p2348

Steve,
I also did the Tilton swap out and just wanted to relay some info as it pertained to me. I pulled the pedal box out and replaced like size for like size, much easier to do on the bench and bleed. The Willwood clutch was a .625" and I replaced with a Tilton .625". I believed the cylinder may be a tad shorter and maybe displaced a little less oil . My shifter became very tough in the fact that the clutch was not disengaging completely. Reverse became impossible after just a short ride and shifting through the gears under hard acceleration was impossible. I changed the Tilton one size up, .7", resulting in a slightly stiffer clutch, but the problem went away. Just me 2 cents. Have fun with the build

Re: p2348

Mike,

Good to know! Anyone else have the same issue? I also encountered a problem with the -4AN fittings. I'm using aluminum fittings at the recommendation of Tilton (like metals). The -3AN double male fitting screws in fine. The -4AN double male fitting that goes to the reservoir uses a crush washer. Torque specs are 25ft/lb. I spun off the first fitting at around 17ft/lb.

25 in/lb would be more appropriate on alloy.

That would be my thought as well... Surprized that it made it to 17 ft lbs actually...
