Hi Colin,

I am currently renewing the CSC ( Clutch Slave ) at a pace my 76+ year old bones and muscles allow... and the weather can be relied on to delay things further the last week or so.

X-Posted from my other threads. :~

======


Needed to make this DIY Tool up prior to lowering and then raising the Gearbox on the MG ZT-T 1.8T needing Slave Cylinder Renewal.

Threat of rain today so worked indoors and used the time productively.

I fashioned something like this about twenty years ago when first removing a PG1 Gearbox from an MG Montego. However, that makeshift job long gone and this is as they say... a proper job.

First a close up of the business end.



This image shows the two main components of the assembly. A length of stout strong 4 be 2 and the threaded rod.



Looking out of the window now at 18.52 hrs, the skies are clear and there's a beautiful 1/2 moon low in the Southern Sky. I hope those clear sky conditions are still there tomorrow. I can then tackle lowering the Gearbox ready to remove and fit the CSC ~ Concentric Slave Cylinder.

There is a vast amount of parts needing removal to access the CSC on these cars. The last clutch job I did on a ZT-T 1.8T was far easier as I was doing an engine swap at the same time.

SECOND THOUGHTS:~

If I ever need to renew another 1.8 75/ZT Clutch and/or Slave, I will remove the engine to access inside the Bell Housing. Far less work and much less time spent under the car. I hate working under cars at the best of times. Unless I have access to a pro-spec high lift two or four post hoist ramp set up.

EDIT TO ADD @ 23:15

Here's one I did earlier ...

Default UPDATE on my CSC JOB

Closing on 2,000 miles since I renewed the CSC ( Concentric Slave Cylinder ) on my MG ZT-T 1.8T.

I used an ebay CSC which was half the price of the Luk one I bought previously which did not last more than 4,000 miles. That Luk never had the nice pedal travel or "feel" the car has now with the inexpensive CSC which looked almost identical in all respects.

Hope I have not spoken too soon...
