Rebuild kits are available for the clutch slave cylinder from under cavalcade parts. You will have to remove the secondary and rear wheel to do this job. While you are there you should fit the "Tracy" plug in the secondary. If it is too much for you, there is an emial group that can talk you through the steps required or there may even be someone nearby that can help. Join the group via

How do I replace the leaky seal on the clutch slave cylinder on a 1986 Suzuki cavalcade

Purchase a replacement seal kit at your local motorcycle parts store. You will also need to buy or borrow a pair of "circlip" pliers to disassemble and reassemble the slave cylinder (to remove and reinstall the retaining clip inside the cylinder). Make sure everything is SPOTLESS, and I mean surgically spotless, before installing new seals and reassembling. DO NOT use any tools to get the new seals on the piston, just your fingers, or you will be doing the job again soon. Soaking the new seals in clean brake fluid for a few hours before reassembly makes the job easier. It also helps to bench-bleed the slave cylinder before re-installing to make it easier to bleed when you get it back on the bike. The "circlip" pliers come in various shapes and sizes, but something basic like this should do just fine.

I have a Hitachi coil nailer model # NV 83A and air leaks out the exaust when you put aior to it. I have replaced the exaust valve, piston bumper, piston o-ring, feeder shaft o-ring, and plunger o-rings,...

I dont recall that there are any orings in the head area. Large leak from head area is caused by cylinder not retracting and seating against headvave. Small leak is usually gaskets between headvalve or cracked tube above headvale or rubber tube seal not seating against body of the gun. Test cylinder movement. Remove the head and push down cylinder, the cylinder should retract. If the cylinder is already down, pull it up. If the cylinder is very hard to pull up, most likely orings too tight or body of gun is warped. If the cylinder moves up with just little force, reinstall head and retest. If small leak, remove head and remove headvalve and look very closely for cracks in the head and tubes.

How hard is it to rebuild or replace a slave cylinder on a 1987 Cavalcade, it is leaking someware inside no "puddles" and can you suggest a parts "house"

Clutch slave cylinder rebuilds require the removal of the "secondary" drive unit, the right angle drive unit beside/aft of the left drivers foot peg. While you are in there, you need to check/fit the "Tracy Plug" and check for play in the output bearing.

2001 prado. clutch pedal sticks to floor under pressure, l can lift it with my foot and carry on driving. Pedal often sinks to the floor on its own. Slave cylinder issue?

may have a large leak in the slave cylinder. do you see fluid dripping underneath te transmission housing? it could have an internal leak but not as common. check the fluid level in the little reservour on the firewall.

Just replaced clutch for my son's Toyotal month later the clutch pedal is staying down and won't come back up

Hi, the likely problem is air in the hydraulic clutch line. This happens when there is a leak in the system that draws down fluid in the reservoir until air is drawn in. You must repair the leak and bleed the system to restore pedal pressure. The leak is usually in the slave cylinder at the transmission, but may also occur in the master cylinder above the pedal. If you can find your leak, I can provide repair instructions--just let me know.

When starting, clutch down 1st gear turning key truck jumps forward, will start but need to be ready to take off in gear that started in. starts fine in neutral.but won't go into gear without grinding

1st check your clutch system, that is most probably where the issue is as the gearbox rarely ever gives issues

2nd check the oil for your gear box. the oil should help the gears as they move into action or move out.

Did you replace the clutch springs with the original ones? or with Barnett ones? the latter are much stronger and will not slip, unlike the original ones. Barnett ones are available from under cavalcade parts.

No clutch pressure, leaking clutch fluid from somewhere above trans. Can not shift into any gears needless to say. Where do you start to find leak and repair

get someone to press the clutch pedal and have someone looking around where you think the leak is. if its around the gearbox it is either the slave cylinder or a pipe.

hope this helps.

Clutch fluid leak

the 900 uses the same reservoir for both brake and clutch; it's in front of the firewall on the side of the pedals, immediately visible when you open the hood. Milky plastic, with a screw top; max and min levels marked by lines.

clutch leaks can be at the slave cylinder in the clutch, which will likely cause slipping clutch; at the master cylinder, which may show as fluid inside the car; or in line between them (runs from master cylinder at firewall to front of engine, where the clutch is located).

Look for leaks on ground and relate to location above leak in engine bay
