Liquid clutch

One of the problems with getting the engine from a '95 is that they come with hydraulic clutches. The usual fix is to buy a doohicky that attaches to the end of the clutch cable and converts the pull into hydraulic pressure. Unfortunately those doohickies cost money. Money that we don't have.

What we do have is the clutch pedal assembly that came out of the Integra. Unfortunately we can't just bolt the whole thing to the firewall because the clutch master would end up poking into the wheel well. What we needed to do was reverse the direction of the master cylinder so that it pointed back into the cabin.

Some pounding, cutting and welding later we have a working clutch pedal. Now we just need to plumb some hydraulic lines.
