Concentric Slave Cylinder

Can anyone recommend a concentric slave cylinder for a Tilton twin plate clutch, that isn't made by Tilton or AP? I've been looking at Renault ones which are within budget at £30!

Thanks,

Oliver

Saab use a concentric one, don't know if it will work with twin plate but worth a google.

Oliver. We use the SAAB one in our F3 cars and they work extremely well. However you need to be sure there is enough room. In the Toleman which has a twin plate clutch and a very shallow bellhousing we had to use an ultra slim AP one at some eye watering cost. Also an issue may be the Tilton clutch. You can use the AP style release bearing (which fits the SAAB) but to get the best out of the Tilton you need an adapter they sell to use the smaller Tilton release bearing. Nick.

Lots of cars these days use them, as to which are practical to adapt to your fitment...is another matter.

Although if looking for something reliable, anything French made would not be my first port of call.

Thanks all. I see Saab 9000 ones on e-bay that look like the right thing.

Any ideas on a bearing Nick? The original Chevy one is flat, but so are the Tilton fingers - that would not appear to be a good idea. The AP bearing in the Pilbeam has a curved face and fits the Tilton nicely. Are they specific to AP or a more common part? This looks rather likely to me: http://www.burtonpower.com/clutch-re...15-hd3259.html

Cheers, Oliver

Oliver. What you need is a 34/W 1-1/2. The old BL/Unipart # is GRB209, QH # is HO3264. TR7, TR8, Rover V8, Jag XJ6, LDV Sherpa. I find them on that well known auction site. They fit the SAAB piston but you have to do a bit of machining to the nose, it is obvious what is needed. Nick.

Hi Nick. Those numbers are great thanks. I've managed to find the Saab 900 4776308 slave cylinder and some dimensions for it. I'll measure up and then get ordering.

Cheers. Oliver

Hi Oliver, I have used a Saab one on the Datsun for years with a twinplate AP clutch. Works well and good price

Thanks all for the advice. Saab was too small internal diam as the Jag input shaft is 30ish mm. Ended up with a Vauxhall Omega one which fits over the shaft nicely and seems to work well on the bench! See my for sale ad for the unused Saab slave and the same release bearing as Nick mentions above.
