7/8" Clutch Slave Cylinder and Hose Assembly. This optional item includes a 7/8" billet aluminum cylinder with a braided stainless steel-covered Teflon hose. The hose replaces the complete line from master cylinder to slave cylinder. It includes fittings to attach to the master cylinder. It is suitable for use with all the master cylinders furnished in Sprites and Midgets. Pedal effort with this cylinder is 36% less than with the 3/4" cylinder previously used. Pedal action has a gentler feel with the custom cylinder.
