Disassembly/Inspection/Assembly "r~

Refer tt Figure 87 for this procedure.

1. Remove the spring.

2. Remove the retainer (Figure 88) from the top of the piston.

3. Place a shop cloth or piece of soft wood at the end of the slave cylinder against the piston.

4. Place the slave cylinder assembly on the workbench with the piston facing down.

WARNING In the next step, the piston may shoot out of the slave cylinder body like a bullet. Keep your fingers out of the way. Wear shop gloves and apply air pressure gradually. Do not use high pressure air or place the air hose nozzle directly against the hydraulic line fitting inlet in the slave cylinder body. Hold the air nozzle away from the inlet allowing some of the air to escape.

5. Apply the air pressure in short spurts to the hydraulic line fitting inlet and force the piston out. Use a service station air hose if you don't have an air compressor.

6. Remove the piston and seal.
