Default Clutch fluid type

What clutch fluid does a RT3 TKO6000 use? Also are there any upgrades to the slave cylinder that is an exact fit?

Dot 3 or 4 (they can be mixed) The Dot 4 has a slightly higher boiling point but absorbs moisture 20% faster than DOT 3 which lowers the boiling point. I can't really say when (time wise) they become much the same in temperature. I Typically I flush all my cars and trucks brake fluid every two years but that's just me. https://www.autozone.com/diy/brakes/...-4-brake-fluid


As far as your slave cylinder. Is it an external? Leaking? Internal type? post a pic of your setup. Typically there are equivalents available.

I bought my last one from Summit.

Several companies make them Dorman, etc...
Mazda B2200 86-93 0.70" bore (works well with a .75" master cyl.)

I also bought a Beck Arnley slave (does not fit) as I wanted the shaft assy out of it. Much nicer than what I currently had installed.

I was hoping someone made a more reliable one since this is the third time I need to replace it. I ordered the one from Amazon
Dorman CS103489.

Yes I've changed two in 7 years. Neither were leaking but the boot was damp.
Getting the output rod as parallel to the body of the slave as possible does help with wear.

I may switch to an internal slave here soon. It will be required as I'm looking at a twin disc clutch. Still debating though.
