American Powertrain Brings Simplicity to Hydraulic Clutch Actuation

Cookeville, TN (March 10, 2008)… Whether you are installing a traditional 4-Speed or a modern 5 or 6-Speed, getting the clutch working is always a big step.  Now you can skip the clunky old mechanical linkage and install a Hydramax® hydraulic clutch system from American Powertrain.

American Powertrain’s complete Hydramax hydraulic systems easily install in almost any vehicle.  The patent pending adjustable master cylinder bracket, plated in durable great looking nickel, allows you to mimic any original clutch rod angle giving you a smooth, modern clutch feel without hacking up your firewall.  Hydramax systems are designed to work with original and aftermarket Ford, Mopar and GM pedals and are available for most vintage 4-speeds along with t5, TKO, Richmond and most t56 transmissions.

Each kit comes with the Hydramax firewall mount, volume matched master cylinder and concentric slave cylinder, reservoir kit, lines, fittings and model specific pedal mounting hardware.  Master cylinder only kits for use with your slave are also available.  Complete systems start at $549.
