    Default Where is my clutch master cylinder?

    At risk of sounding like a total noob, I must ask where the clutch master cylinder on my 90 k1500 with a 350 and 5 speed manual is. It's my first manual truck, so I'm not too familiar with the setup yet.

    I thought I had an answer, but now I'm not sure.
    The reservior is next to the brake booster, and I think the master cylinder is mounted to the frame rail below the clutch pedal. I had a line blow out about six years ago and had to do repairs in about a foot of snow.
    I guess follow the line down from the reservior. And as I recall, if you're bleeding out the system, use some ramps so you can get the truck at an angle so the air raises to the top of the cylinder.

    Hope this helps,

    the clutch master is on the firewall next to the brake booster , it has a line that goes to your slave cylinder into the tranney by the starter , that should be it .
