Stainless Clutch Line
 
I am looking to install a single stainless clutch line with AN fittings.
Does anyone already know thread and pitch sizes for the slave and master cylinders?

Alternate:
Buy TAS Auto Clutch Line (dampner to top mount tranny, banjo bolt)
And keep the hard line from tranny to slave cylinder.
I would remove dampner and do an adapter to -AN fittings
Question (to those that have purchased TAS clutch line):
What is the thread and pitch size of the opposite side of the banjo bolt?
And does it seperate? I know I could just throw a metric to -AN adapter.

If this has been covered, my apologies. Been looking for a few days now!

why? The hard lines are better, the ss line allows for expansion. (greater pedal travel) If you have to replace only do as much as you have to.

drummersteve7 02-27-2010 08:59 AM

hmm I read it was better for to replace the rubber hose with this.
so yah I thought it would just be better to replace the whole thing.

makes sense tho. so can I remove the dampner with the TAS auto line?

judonoh 02-27-2010 12:43 PM

not sure on the tas line. I had one made that goes from the hard line to the tranny, thus bypassing the dampenr and second hard line.

You will need a few pieces to make the line, When priced out it comes up around $75.

I bought the entire line from a vendor on hondatech. BandRfittings is the vendor. Check him out. Great service and fast shipping. I reccommend him.

Check out my post in this thread: THREAD

Bonaco is alot cheaper than the guy on H-T and gave me great service.

drummersteve7 02-28-2010 08:52 AM

thank you soooo much man.
helping my fixing of the auto to manual swap that was done.

good looking out.

when i ran the line from the CMC to the slave, i deleted out the dampner by hooking up the TAS SS clutch line directly to the hardline that stretches from CMC to the dampner. On the TAS line, both ends of the line can unscrew, as for the thread pitch and all that jazz i have no idea because i had to send TAS a section of the hardline with the old fittings on it for them to make me an adapter.

Has anyone experience any trouble after removing the dampener?

drummersteve7 02-28-2010 10:09 PM

I have removed the dampner on my other car with absolutley no issues.
I did not however go the 1 line route. it is all hard lines.

as far as using bonaco. where are the 12mm x 1.0 to -3an fittings?
I looked everywhere, does not appear any shop has them.
Lemme know!

You'll feel a tad more vibration through the clutch pedal but it won't damage anything, many members have done it with no ill effects.

Go to their home page and click the link to "request an online quote", click through and it'll give you all the options. Make sure you also select the correct shape fitting (concave/convex), I can't remember which the cb7 needs though, but I think you need both ends to be concave.

drummersteve7 02-28-2010 10:29 PM

I would go with concave, since the way of the master cylinder and slave cylinder.
so we shall see. I really wanna get this done.

edit: parts ordered from Pegasus Auto Racing
Part #3-48-S-90 which is 48 inch Size 3 TFE Hose, Straight Swivel to 90 degree Swivel
Part #3265-16 Male 10 x 1.0mm Metric Convex Seat to 3AN
Part #3265-42 Male 12 x 1.0mm Metric Convex Seat to 3AN Male

I ordered 2 sets one for each car. Should be good from the info I gather.

You are getting them to build the lines and not just ordering components I hope...?

lol I saw it done on a 5th gen. Im gunna do it too. I think 8ft would be enough to hide it well

drummersteve7 03-02-2010 09:07 AM

ya man I would wait, just to see if mine works.
I would not wanna have ya order something that doesn't work, ya know.

and I wanna know what 19dabeast has to say.
he is talkin about not having individual parts.
not sure why if the parts are rated for it.

apparently he ordered his kit as 1 complete unit, I gather, correct?

Night Wolf 03-02-2010 09:31 AM

using the bonacoinc.com site I think I got the right peices from the "Quote on hoses and fittings"...

line=3/16 size in about 8ft

end 1=M10x1 conv 45 degree elbow (part#=6155-31-03)

end 2=??? no 12mm listed???

drummersteve7 03-02-2010 09:34 AM

I am pretty sure he ordered it all 1 piece, as a special quote.

19dabeast85 03-04-2010 12:11 PM

I don't understand why ya'll are having the troubles.....you go through their "request a quote" from the main page and "create" a line. You select a line 4-5ft long and with a 10mm x 1.0 slave end and 12mm x 1.0 MC end, preferably a 90 degree bend on the 12mm MC end but not necessary. As you step through the quote process, all of the fittings are available including the 12mm ones. In the end you submit a request to them to build that line for you. They email you a price quote and you approve. They build it and ship it to you ready to go.

If you order the individual parts, I hope you have the proper -AN crimp tools to put the line together properly. You know there's 100's of psi of pressure in the clutch line, right?
