Clutch Master Cylinder Replacement How To?

Would you guys be interested in a Clutch Master Cylinder Replacement How To? I took pictures along the way and could write one up pretty easily. If there is already one please disregard.

Let me know,
Zach

Yes there were a couple questionable things that I got hung up on. I figured it would be nice to have one. Oh and you were right about it being that piece and I figured out an easy way to test it. IF you unhook the pedal and can easily push the bar down then its bad, if it doesn't then it is good.

quick question...

Did you new master come with a push rod? I bought my master from Ford, and it didn't include the pushrod, so i had to carry it over to the new unit.

I think the How-To would be worthwhile.

Just did one this weekend, had questions.

Managed to muddle through based on reading many threads and one that I started here.

Please mention unbolting (no need to remove) the inner fenderwell liner so that it flexes enough to get the Master out of the vehicle.

I farted around with the Master/Slave assembly on the work bench. When I finally did install it, I relied on the Quick Disconnect and it did not let me down. It worked as designed, and I did not have to bleed it whatsoever upon installation. That was the second time I had that luck (first one needed a flywheel - no teeth {Southern truck, lol}).

*BUMP* - haven't seen anything come of this. Did the writeup ever get posted?

I'm facing this on my GF's Ranger and the Haynes manual has lousy instructions.
