    Hi everyone! I just did repair my bell housing and got a heavy duty 6p clutch in my international prostar. Is it possible to replace the factory hydraulics slave pump for an air assisted one in order to get my pedal softer? This traffic out here in NJ is killing my knees

    For the w900 there are 2 pressure plates you can pick from. 1800 lbs and 2200 lbs.

    If international does the same thing. You must have gotten the heavier plate. Instead of the lighter plate.

    The heavier plate is harder to push.

    Don't know how the system will last when more pressure is required.

    I kicked myself in the butt for going heavier on a linkage clutch. Yep. It's hard on the knee if you're stopping alot.
     
    Taveras101 Thanks this.

    Thank you for the info! Is possible to place an air assisted pump instead of the one it has?
