Default External Slave Cylinder

Chris,

The Shelby external slave cylinder was mentioned in this thread: http://www.clubcobra.com/t52898.html

What brand/type is it and where is it mounted? I couldn't find mention of this cylinder on the carrollshelbyent website.

Thanks!

Tim

Tim,

The cylinder winds up being about 1/2" directly above the driver's side frame rail. It is a push-style setup, so the cylinder is on the engine side of the bellhousing. The actual cylinder is a Girling. All the bracketry is laser cut to Shelby's print. Included are:

- Slave Cylinder
- Block bracket
- Pushrod
- Return Spring
- Reinforcement bracket for use with stock bellhousing only.


Thanks for asking; I hope this helps!

To confirm, anyone with a Kirkham using this setup?

Someone mentioned having to do some modifications to the fork, but this kit which has been discussed as working correctly for CSX cars doesn't mention mention any fork changes that would be needed. Are there any clearance issues I should be concerned with on a Kirkham?

Brent,

The fork would need to be modified. The fork I have always used has triangle shaped "ears" out in the pushrod pocket. If you were to grind off the ear and contour the end to match the pocket, it will work fine.

Thanks for sharing, everyone.

Chris, when I get closer to that point, I'll give you a call.

Welcome, from Carroll Shelby

Have you noticed that it's tough finding quality performance parts to build a reliable FE engine? I have and I decided to do something about it by introducing my own line of Shelby FE™ performance parts. I worked with my design staff to build the best, because my name is on them. My racing legacy with FE performance engines extends back to my race winning 427 Cobras and GT-40 Mk.IV racers that won LeMans. Three decades later, my newer Shelby FE™ parts utilize proven design refinement to create FE performance parts for the new millennium.

My catalog illustrates an overall selection of parts available, but we can supply complete engines or parts from oil pan to carburetor to build your own Shelby 427 FE™ aluminum or cast iron engine just the way you want it. Call and speak directly to our engine department with your tech questions and orders. You have my name on it.

~ Carroll Shelby
