willwood pull type cylinder on 020 box?

Post by Yolandi2 » Mon Jan 15, 2018 1:12 am

hi, thinking of trying to convert the cable operated clutch to hydraulic, fitting a master cylinder doesn't look difficult and retrofication actually sell a kit for that end of the system but i cant find any info on fitting a pull type slave cylinder to the gearbox end

has anyone attempted this before or maybe can point me towards where i could find some stuff out about it?

better to get the gearbox setup from an audi a3 1.6 because it has exactly what you need

ive never tried it but i reckon it should work

That’s an 02k box - as found on most 1.6 cars from that era - mk4 Golf etc

The only problem is that it’s shorter than an 020 and will need a custom mount (or mounts) fabricating.

couldn't the end casing be swapped to a rocco o2o box?
the middle casing looks identical to a rocco box and even has the casting for the cable
i would have thought making an end mount piece to fit into the rocco mount wouldn't be hard to do
