    dear techbuster, you obviously didn't read the problem i described very well. i am trying to replace the slave cylinder not the actual clutch assembly. i will try another problem solver.

  • btbuff Sep 28, 2009

    initial "expert " advice did not come close to addressing my described problem. i am trying to install slave cylinder in very confined space. i am not trying to install new clutch assembly between transmission and flywheel.

    Great idea! I compressed cylinder with tie wraps(I put sticky foam tape on ball end of rod so wrap wouldn't slide off) so assembly was small enough to slip into small space and then hung cylinder into space with another wrap so I could start bolts into place with one hand(only room for one hand). It worked. Thanks again, MNfisherman.

It is a small space on this car. I recommend ties or something to hold one side while you start the other side or help you hold. Tape works too. Have had to use it. Get the rubber seal on cylinder first before inserting. You can also use rtv silicone on seal to get it to seal first before putting on cylinder.
You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual. It has some good tips as well.

First off check to see if you need A complete Kit or just Certain Parts..
Honestly i would just buy the OEM Kit and Wait For Something better But This is On how To Install a OEM Clutch.
First off Get the car Either on A Lift or Jack stands.. Raise the Front so you have Room to unmount the transmission from the Motor.
Then after you unbolt the transmission from The motor the best Thing is to have the Flywheel cut ( This helps on wear) but if you dont have the time Or Money its not Really important.
Next step is to Remove the Old Clutch, pressure plate ,Pilot, and throwout berrings.
Then (If you bought A complete kit) use The Allignment tool To Line up the Kit.
MAKE SHURE YOU DO THIS EXACTLY OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE NEW KIT
When You Have The pressure plate Lined up make SHURE THE NEW DISK You put with the SPRINGS FACING THE PRESSURE PLATE. After that install your berrings Exactly how it was in your car then Put some screws in To hold it And Line it up after that Tighten everyhig up and Your Done. go for A test drive And See how it feels

Won;t start while clutch pressed but will push start


The clutch master cylinder must have gone out, the seals in it have failed. The clutch master cylinder (next to the brake master cylinder) gives you hydraulic pressure so the clutch pedal can operate the clutch.
You can buy a new clutch master, a rebuilt unit, or yours can be rebuilt with new seals. Save time and money and buy a rebuilt or remanufactured unit. Once installed, you bleed the system down at the clutch slave cylinder, mounted on the transaxle.

I NEED replace head gaske


Hi there:Removal and InstallationExcept Accord V-6


The cylinder head temperature must be below 100 degrees F (38 degrees C); allow the engine to cool several hours if the car has been recently driven. Turn the crankshaft pulley so that the number one piston is at Top Dead Center (TDC) of the compression stroke.

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the air cleaner and intake duct assembly.
  4. Label and remove the brake booster, PCV and charcoal canister vacuum hoses from the intake manifold.
  5. Remove the engine ground cable from the cylinder head or valve cover.
  6. Relieve the fuel pressure using the proper procedure. Disconnect the fuel lines.
  7. Disconnect the accelerator cable at the throttle body or carburetor. On automatic transaxle vehicles, also disconnect the throttle control cable.
  8. Disconnect and tag all the wire harnesses and vacuum hoses from the cylinder head, intake manifold and throttle body/carburetor. Disconnect the spark plug wires, then position them aside.
  9. Disconnect the upper radiator hose. Remove the heater hoses from the cylinder head.
  10. If equipped, remove the cruise control actuator. Do not disconnect the cable; move the actuator out of the work area with the cable attached.
  11. Remove accessory drive belts.
  12. Disconnect the inlet hose from the power steering pump and plug the hose immediately to prevent fluid leakage. Remove the power steering pump from the cylinder head and position it aside.

When the power steering hose is disconnected, the fluid will flow out. Cover the alternator with a shop towel to prevent the fluid from leaking into it.

  1. If the alternator is mounted to the cylinder head, remove it.
  2. Remove the power steering and alternator brackets if they are mounted on the cylinder head.
  3. Remove the distributor. Be sure to scribe a line relating the position of the distributor to the engine for easy installation.
  4. If equipped, remove the cylinder sensor next to the distributor.
  5. Remove the valve cover.
  6. Remove the timing belt.

Do not crimp or bend the timing belt.

  1. Remove the exhaust header pipe nuts and the header pipe bracket (if equipped). Pull the pipe away from the exhaust manifold.
  2. If equipped, remove the EGR crossover and air suction pipes.
  3. On Accords through 1989 and Preludes through 1991, the cylinder head can be removed with the intake and exhaust manifolds either still attached or removed. On other models, the manifolds should be removed first.
  4. On some engines, it will be necessary to remove the camshaft holders, camshafts and rocker arms to access the cylinder head bolts. If so, refer to the proper procedures in this section.
  5. Remove the cylinder head bolts in sequence (take notice of any bolt holes occupied by longer bolts). Failure to follow this procedure may cause the head to warp.
    1. On 1984-89 Accords and 1984-91 Preludes, work from the ends toward the center. Loosen each bolt about 1 / 2 turn each time and make several passes to release the tension evenly.
    2. On 1990-95 Accords and 1992-95 Preludes, follow the loosening sequence shown in the illustrations. Loosen each bolt about 1/3 turn each time. Repeat the sequence until all bolts are loosened.

Fig. 1: Bolt loosening sequence on 1990-93 Accords and 1992-95 Preludes with 2.2L engines

24. Remove the cylinder head. The head may resist removal, even with the bolts out. Tap the edge of the head with a plastic or rubber mallet; lift the head straight up to remove it.
  1. Remove the cylinder head gasket and clean the mating surfaces.
  1. If applicable, remove the intake and exhaust manifolds from the cylinder head.

To install:
  1. Install a new head gasket on the engine, making certain it is positioned correctly. The cylinder head dowel pins and the oil jet must be in place. Refer to the illustrations if necessary.
  2. Install the head. Lower it straight down onto the block, aligning it correctly.
  3. Apply clean engine oil to the bolt threads and the contact face of the bolt head. Install the head bolts finger-tight.
  4. On all models except 1988-89 DOHC Prelude and 1992-95 Preludes with 2.3L and VTEC engines, tighten the head bolts following sequence A. On 1988-89 DOHC Preludes, use sequence B. Use sequence C on 1992-95 Preludes with 2.3L and VTEC engines.
    1. On 1984-89 Accords and 1984-91 Preludes, tighten the bolts in two passes. The first pass should bring the bolts to about 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). On the second pass, tighten the bolts to their final torque of 49 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).
    2. On 1990-93 Accords, tighten the bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) on the first pass, 51 ft. lbs. (70 Nm) on the second pass, then tighten the bolts to their final torque of 78 ft. lbs. (108 Nm).
    3. On 1994-95 Accords and 1992-95 Preludes, the bolts are also tightened in three passes. Tighten the bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (40 Nm) on the first pass, 51 ft. lbs. (70 Nm) on the second pass, then tighten the bolts to their final torque of 72 ft. lbs. (100 Nm).

How to install a clutch kit on my 1994 mitsubishi mighty max


Disconnect the battery, disconnect the Hydraulic Line from the Slave Cylinder, Remove the Starter (2 bolts, 2 wires. Bolts are 14mm, 1 wire is 12mm, 1 plugs in), Remove the Driveshaft(s) (4 12mm bolts) Remove the 6 bolts from the bellhousing (4 are 14mm, 2 are 10mm)
Remove the bolt from the Transfer Case Mount, 12mm (only if it's a 4WD, if it's 2WD this doesn't apply), remove the 2 bolts that hold the Transmission Mount to the Crossmember (12mm or 14mm, it varies)
Slide the transmission back on the crossmember, away from the engine, I recommend running a ratchet strap across the frame to balance the transmission.
Remove the Pressure Plate from the Flywheel (Six 10mm bolts), Inspect the Pilot Bearing (if it needs replaced, you'll need to remove the Flywheel which is held on with six 18mm bolts, drive out the old bearing and drive in the new one, reinstall the flywheel, using Threadlocker on the bolts, torque the bolts to 100 ft lbs) Install the new clutch disc and Pressure Plate, with the centering tool inserted through the disc into the pilot bearing. Use thread locker on the pressure plate bolts and torque them to 20 ft lbs. Remove the centering/alignment tool after you've bolted it together
Remove old Throw Out bearing from input shaft on the transmission and slide the new one on. Slide the Transmission forward (make sure the input shaft slides into the pilot bearing, don't force the transmission into place or you could damage the clutch disc or break the input shaft) Torque the Bellhousing Bolts to 40 ft lbs (4 14mm bolts), Torque the 2 10mm bolts to 14 ft lbs, Install the Starter (torque bolts to 23 ft lbs), Reconnect Hydraulic Line to Slave Cylinder. Torque Transmission Mount Bolts to 30 ft lbs.
Reinstall Driveshafts, torque bolts on flange/yoke to 40 ft lbs. Fill Clutch Master Cylinder with DOT-3 Brake & Clutch Fluid, Open Bleeder Screw on Slave Cylinder and bleed the air out of the system, close bleeder screw.
Reconnect the wires to the Starter, Reconnect the battery.

Where is the Master and Slave Cylinder located on my 2000 Honda Prelude


Might help if you gave a clue as to whether you are asking about the clutch or the brakes, they both have both. Open the hood and look directly in front of where you push when you push the brake or clutch. Mounted on that wall under the hood you will see two reservoirs, one is master for brake and the other master for clutch. There is a slave for the clutch attached to the bell housing where it attaches to the engine, and each wheel's brake has a slave for the brakes.

Some companies have made a shared master cylinder, so there is some possibility there would be but one master cylinder. You would know that if both systems have failed together.

Working on Honda Prelude 1992 with a 2.2 motor can't get bolt off crankshaft pulley wanting to know if it is left or right handed threads


It is standard thread (right handed) and a little more information if you need it: there is a hole on the rear of the block on the drivers side located just behind the rear balance shaft so you can lock your engine #1 cylinder @ TDC with a 6mmX100mm bolt or screwdriver. there is a hole machined into the balance shaft that holds everything still so you can get done....I would also recommend the use of an impact....IT IS TIGHT!!!
