Hydraulic clutch conversion, McLeod
Just wanted to post a little information about the McLeod hydraulic clutch conversion for A bodies. Kinda pricey for what you get, and my biggest gripe is that the clutch master cylinder is PLASTIC! Well, hopefully it'll last. It comes with a new clutch pedal that you have to use, but it is meant for a Chevelle. I will post pics to show the difference tomorrow. I had a clutch and brake pedal assembly from a Olds 442, which looks to be the same as the Buicks and uses a bolt to hang the pedals whereas the Chevelle and McLeod uses a large rod as part of the clutch pedal that the brake pedal hangs on and uses a clip to hold it in place. So I had to buy a Chevelle clutch and brake pedal assembly to use the McLeod kit. The Chevelle setup looks like it'll bolt in but needs two holes drilled where it mounts to the body in one spot to be a perfect match...no big deal.
So now I have a spare BOP/442 clutch and brake pedal setup I'll be selling soon and a loner Chevelle clutch pedal. Hopefully the rest of the install will go well. I wish someone would have shared this info sooner, so here it is to help others.
