had another tangent today, back to the clutch.

as I'm using a multiplate clutch I may need to limit the travel to save the possibility of clutch-cover's spring 'fingers' clashing with the top driven plate  wavey.png
 
possibly overthinking things but fail to prepare.......

easily sorted on a 5 as Mazda fitted a travel-limit to the clutch pedal with a rubber buffer, I removed the buffer from the pedal, drilled the hole out to 6.5mm & ran an m8/1.25 second tap through to cut a thread.

this is adjustable for travel with anadjustable allen-bolt & locknut fitted.

more sillyness...

I've bought an AP Racing CP4623-90 master cylinder (evilbay again)

https://apracing.com...3-type?switch=2

with the intention of using as a handbrake cylinder BUT curiosity made me look at the clutch cylinder mount dimensions wavey.png

https://apracing.com...4-CP4623-cd.pdf

looks to be close as not to make a diference wink.png

the -90 denotes 0.625" / 5/8" /16mm bore and the Mx5 uses a 16mm bore so comparable cool.png

so looks like another braided hose to make then!


these cylinders are like the CP2623 type I'm using for the brake sustem so have the option of remote or fitted (screwed) reservoirs, will have to decide on the best option as a remote reservoir could make more room around the throttlebodies BUT maybe neater with a fitted reservoir - will bolt the cylinder to the car & decide...

new (old!) mastercylinders have landed, as they're used I'm going to buy seal / rebuild kits (~£13 each for genuine AP Racing).

Mg4TKp7.jpg
tried a rosejoint on one & offered against a clutch pedalbox, sits slightly off vertical @ about 11.30 o'clock undecided.png. nothing's easy is it?

also, is it wrong to sandblast & paint a spare clutch slave cylinder?

or a propshaft...

at least it's clean where the flanges meet as are the bolting spotfaces smiley.png

will find time to finish the delrin diff mounts this weekend hopefully.

due to a post on the fb / mx5itb page about cylinderhead port length I've taken a photo to add, obviously it'd be rude to not add it to this waffle rofl.png

pair of seal-kits & fluid reservoir ordered for the master-cylinders, going with one for clutch (needs the reservoir) and one for the handbrake although I might not have a lever connected just the cylinder fitted & plumbed into the rear fluid line to future-proof the car  :driving: 

also spent an hour mentally plumbing the brake & clutch systems, then ordered another bundle of fittings for a full braided-flexi line install :wallbash: 

 

22 'ends' plus copper sealing washers, banjo-bolts and a few metres of hose. chose plated steel over stainless due to my hatred of stainless as a fastening :yes:  

 

I'm refusing to count the costs for the plumbing (brakes & oiling) :trigger:

ebay strikes again...

cheap AP Racing 7 1/4" multiplate was spotted, a very cheeky offer was made & accepted pirate.png

when it arrives I'll see if its in better or worse condition than the 2 others I have  shocked.png

'ends' have landed, well I went to collect as somehow missed the courier yesterday superangry.png

2IwiW0h.jpg
some as stock spares and some to complete the car...

LFnFk6F.jpg
how the 'handbrake' cylinder will be plumbed, typically every fitting / thread in the brake system is m10, the fluid inlet on this cylinder is m12 so an oddity was needed shocked.png

now to decide where the handbrake cylinder will live, can be a bit tricky here as I can recess it into the gearbox tunnel in front of the standard handbrake lever (neat & out of the way) or do I go for a seperate lever to keep the cable and hydraulic systems indipendant 
obviously if I decide on a seperate hydro-handbrake lever this means deciding where it can live - another bloody decision rofl.png
