The driver-side engine mount serves double duty as a bracket for the clutch slave cylinder. Chad held the slave cylinder in place, and took all the dimensions to form a good fit. This slave cylinder is a heavy-duty '66-72 Ford pickup part. Chad chose it partly due to the location of the hose port and bleeder valve. The far side of the slave cylinder will mount to a plate with threaded holes to avoid having to fit nuts into that tight spot. This design will make this part easier to get to without having to tear apart the car. He modified the shaft (arrow) for this application, shortening it (the removed portion is at the bottom of the photo), and adding a Heim joint. As the slave cylinder fills with fluid, the shaft is pushed out, actuating the arm operating the clutch.
