    Mike,
    This is the one that you just sent me. What's the brand and size of it? Any significant difference between it and the CNC ones you mention above?
    Thanks!
    David

    I called and spoke to Mike earlier today with essentially the same question. The slave cylinder you have (which is the same as what I have) is his new design as of a few months ago that replaced the CNC slave cylinder. You're good to go, and don't need to worry about stocking up on a spare CNC slave cylinder. What you (and I) have is plentiful and readily available. Not really sure about brand or specs. It must be different internally though, as it came with a 13/16 Wilwood master, which is different than the 1-1/8 master that the old CNC slave cylinders came with.

    Edit: I should also add that Mike mentioned that he redesigned the mounting bracket for the new slave, so it's not a direct swap for the CNC slave.

    Thanks for that info John. Makes sense because my Wilwood master is also 13/16. Still, it would be nice to know the brand and size so that if we ever need to replace it we could find the right part.
    I’m really enjoying your build thread by the way! Looks great!!

    Thanks David. I appreciate it. How's your build coming along? It's very cool that you have your dad and your son involved.

    I agree - I'd love to have some more info on the new slave cylinder. My guess is that it's a Dorman part, but I tried to google the numbers on the markings without luck. Hopefully, Mike will chime in.

    Iím confused lol Are the CNC slaves just nicer looking machined slaves (like Speedway) as opposed to the cast looking ones that David and John have?
    Also a question for David and John, or Mike.... Iíve seen both a steel and machined aluminum slave mounting bracket.
    Planning on a TKO 600 so Iím curious what trans and bracket you two have. Or Mike, what are you making/shipping now?

    Hey Kurt,

    Yes, I believe the CNC slaves were pretty much just prettier-looking slaves. CNC went out of business (owner retired) recently, so Mike had to come up with a new design for the hydraulic clutch setup. I ordered from Mike back in early March and apparently got one of the early units of the new design. Here's what I received. This is for a TKO600 + Gen 2 Coyote combo.

    Thanks John,

    Kind of what I thought on that. Speedway sells a prettier looking slave but I guess a pretty slave isn’t a big deal lol
    My main concern was the bracket. Hopefully it’s the same kind of bracket for a SBF.
    Thanks again

    Mike... are rebuild kits available?
    If not, I'm guessing brake wheel cylinder parts would work... thoughts?

    Yes there are also rebuild kits available for the time being, However we don't have vary many.

    The new Hydraulic brackets Have been redesigned for the replacement cylinder so we will continue to sell the hydraulic kit.
