Found it on their site. Not sure I'm quite willing to pay $90 USD + shipping for a single hose. My line looks like it's still in decent shape. No leaking or weeping.

Your local hydraulic shop should be able to make one for you, much cheaper (and likely same day). If you can take in the original hose they can either re use the ends or make sure they install the right ends on the new hose.

Good point. I ordered a hose from Paragon Performance in any case. I'll have to check with a local shop though too.

Re: Tarpan's 1996 Audi UrS6 - Slave Replacement Issues

Postby IslandRinger » Tue Jul 10, 2018 11:55 pm

Received my new Slave Cylinder today so I thought I'd attempt to replace it tonight when I noticed differences between old vs new

The most obvious difference is that the actuating rod is in fact longer. It's also missing the other ball end. The ball end it does have does not have a retaining collar for the boot. The boot itself is bigger to accommodate for the longer rod. Minor differences are that the bleed screw location is slightly different and the body is physically longer slightly.

Will I run into any issues using this "new" Slave Cylinder?

Solved my conundrum with the help of some of the folks over at QW. The new slave, while slightly different, ended up being fine. Finished installing the new master cylinder. It came in a Sachs box but actually was an OEM Boge replacement. Bonus! Just waiting on a new clutch line from Paragon Performance and I'll be ready to install the slave.

Very nice. Let us know how it goes and if it solves your problem. I might have missed it, did you end up pulling the tranny out?

Will do. I did not pull the trans out. The symptoms led me to believe there were issues with either the master or slave. I preferred to start with the easier stuff. Here's to hoping it fixes the issue.

Quick update. All new clutch hydraulic parts did not solve the problem. Looks like I'll be dropping the tranny after all. Ugh.

Looking for suggestions for a good clutch kit for my Volvo turbo setup.

The guys in Europe swear by the Sachs 707 pressure plate, which is what Southbend uses (as I understand).

Feramic won't spoil if oil gets past the rear main, and holds up to a lot of torque. That's what I'd recommend.

Good to know. EFI Express has a good run of Southbend clutches. Looking at the Stage 2 Endurance potentially. Ticks the boxes you mentioned.

Finally did what I should've done a week ago and emailed Marc at EFI. Asked him for a recommendation for a clutch kit that would suit my power and torque with the hardware I have coming down the line.

He recommended the South Bend Stage 3 Daily kit. It should be able to easily handle the modest Volvo K24 upgrade while still giving me flexibility to run E85 if I choose to do so in the future. Looking into ordering one shortly to get the ball rolling.

Anything else worth taking care of "while I'm in there?"
As mentioned, I've already replaced the clutch master, slave and hydraulic line. I know it's recommended to deal with the rear main seal and plan on at least purchasing the part and replacing if needed.

Regarding the RMS, I believe the 1.8t part is a nice upgrade and not expensive either.

I'd look at doing the pilot/throw out bearing because it's a huge pain in the ass going back in just for that.

I'll look into that 1.8T part you mention. I know there are two styles of rear main seals, old and new. I believe the updated version is a flange-style if that's what you're referring to.
As mentioned, I'll order the part but will decide to replace or not depending on the condition of the current seal. I've heard lots of stories of people replacing a dry seal only to have the new seal leak shortly after.

As for the pilot/throwout bearing, aren't those usually included in the clutch kits?
