Hi everybody, it's my first time, be gentle.
I have a 1995 F150 4X4 5.0L Manual with 210 000km.
This morning the slave cylinder went again, for the 5th or maybe 6th time. I love my truck, but this slave cylinder b.s. is driving me nuts!
I had it replaced 2 times while under warranty (only 50 000km back then). Every nearly every brand has been used; Ford, Raybestos, Blue streak?, Napa and I forget what else.
The damn thing is internal, so it's far from an easy replacement. Is there any possible retrofit? Or will a tranny with external slave cylinder from the 250/350 family fit somehow? I know somebody with a 1996 F350 with a manual, and he's never had a problem. Even if he did, it would easy enough to replace.
I even call Ford customer service (Ford Canada) when it was still under warranty. They called the dealer that I always went to for EVERTHING, and the came up with a politicians answer thanking me for my loyalty and promising to "work with me on this issue". Which amounted to ZERO.
Any ideas, please help
