    I know wilwood has been discussed here before but I am leaning hard to buy one for my hydraulic clutch setup and was just wandering opinions of if I did, I was actually considering using the aluminum bowl that has two outlet ports designed for their MC that has a bigger bowl than the chinsey looking master cylinder and resivoir they have. Thought would be to plug one of the holes and have a better built and bigger resivior for the clutch. It is a single bowl and not divided. So is that overkill with not needing a bigger resivoir or does anyone have the clutch pedal assembly (Not talking about slave cylinder have read and am scared of that setup) and do you like it. Refering to the hanging pedal assembly with an aluminum bowl.

    If so where's the most affordable place to buy many dealers are selling their products

    The small nylon type bowls allow you to see the fluid level at a glance (good) metal bowl (not). The clutch slave does not require a whole lot of fluid so a big bowl would be a waist of fluid and unnecessary overkill. JMO.

    Why would you want a bigger bowl? The slave cylinder only used a small amount of fluid to move the clutch fork. :?

    I have installed the setup on the Commando we are building for my buddy Sheldon. So far it has worked great - though it has not seen much use yet.

    Working with it, I think your worried over a non issue.

    I have used the master cylinder from CNC on my jeep for at least 5 years. I used them because they offer a stainless steel sleeve in the bore. I have had no problems with it. I did start out with their pull slave cylinder and have since replaced it with a standard push cylinder.

    Thanks guys, Scott really was just worried about quality more than the capacity but I think Warloch helped to ease my mind
