MK1 RHD Hydraulic Clutch Conversion
Monday, 25 September 2017 | Admin
The tutorial will show you how to convert your MK1 Caddy, Golf or Scirocco 1 & 2 to Hydraulic Clutch using the components that you purchased in our shop.
Pass the clevis pin through hole and weld (Make sure you put this in the correct way!)
Clevis now welded!
Drill your pedal with a 3-4mm hole and grind to a point in the same area so that the return spring does not bind against the pedal.
Your completed clutch pedal will now look something like this:
Pedal box preparation
Now re-fit the pedal to the pedal box, and then cable tie the pedal tight to the rubber stop. Then fit one of the M10 washers over the clevis pin.
Weld the supplied M8 bolts to bracket as shown below (this isnt necessary but is preferred!
Drill out the threads on the supplied Master Cylinder with a 9mm drill bit, and then bolt the master cylinder to the bracket.
Offer the bracket up to the column and fit the loop of the master cylinder over the clevis pin (make sure you have fitted the washer first).
Now clean off the paint on all touching edges of the bracket.
Make sure the bracket is square and lined up before welding.
Once your happy of the position tack weld the bracket to the column.
Now cut off the cable tie and check the movement of the master cylinder and check that is not binding.
When your happy with full movement and positioning you can then weld fully to the column
Once the metalwork has all cooled down you can now prep the pedal box & pedal for some satin black paint (we have not painted ours just yet in this tutorial).
You can now bolt on the master cylinder, fit the second washer, split pin & return spring.
The pedal box is now ready to fully re-assemble and fit back into the vehicle.
We will have supplied enough hose for you application, but you may want to shorten it for your setup.
