    Got some of my engineering friends to help me print out a clutch master cylinder mount. Looking to get it machined now.

      That is very slick, what kind of clutch cylinder is that?

      From experience you may need to back bleed the system with the master mounted at that angle. Easy enough, just pump/push fluid in at the bleed nipple end until all the air comes out the reservoir. It can be messy but always works for me. I use a top plunger type garden weedkiller spray thingy with the gun cut off of the hose which then pushes onto the nipple.

      It looks like the geometry between the clutch pedal and the push rod will not give you enough stroke, if any.
      In my opinion the push rod needs to be more horizontal.

      Are you going to be using a Hydraulic TB?

      Thanks for the tip, It'll be a while before I'm ready to bleed.

      Its setup the same as any of the hydraulic kits you can buy. This linkage runs through the same hole in the firewall where the original clutch linkage runs. I Can't remember the stroke of the master, but its less than 2".

      This setup is for a 5.7 with a TR6060 from a '10 Challenger, using the stock throwout bearing

      I like that mount. It looks like this one in this guys challenger. I'd like to try it out. Maybe make a few of them...

      I have an american powertrain mount, which is okay.

      I didn't like the Wilwood slave cylinder because the output hit the inner fender, So I searched and searched and found a Tilton with the same stroke, and mounting style, only the output is on top, AND the overall length is also shorter, so that helps it get away from the inner fender, and kept me from having to either make a dent there or cut and weld clearance in that area. :)

      question,
      When converting an automatic A body over to a manual, planning to use a hydraulic TOB, is it necessary or recommended to strengthen the firewall in the area of the clutch cylinder mount to reduce flex?

      Yes it is. Some guys weld a reinforced plate in that area and if you look at the picture of the yellow challenger you can see he has a brace from the clutch slave cylinder to the inner fender.
