I took a leap of faith from you guys and bought the part today.
Going to replace it Saturday so I have more than 2 hours to change everything.

DONE!

DO IT! - LOVE the way the clutch feels now, although I inadvertantly barked the tires, in the driveway, it gives you a LOT more feel and control!!!

Awesome site: Important to check. I just found this on my 91 D21. I bought the truck used and it had sat for a while. I was having problems with the clutch not fully disengaging when I depressed the clutch so it was difficult to shift because the clutch had not fully disengaged.

Problem was that the rubber boot on the slave cylinder had shrunk and had become hard. This caused the rod coming out of the slave cylinder to not fully extend. So there was some loosens between the end of the slave cylinder rod and the fork. Therefore, when I pressed the clutch, the rod spent part of its travel just taking up the gap that was created by the rubber boot on the slave cylinder that was keeping the end of the rod pulled into the slave cylinder. I slid the rubber boot back to allow the rod to fully extend, problem was greatly resolved.

I have purchased a new slave cylinder so that this is not a problem anymore as the rod will not fully engage and take up any slop in the fork so the clutch will fully disengage when the clutch peddle is pressed.

BTW. As the slave cylinder did not leak and everything looked good, I assumed there was no problem.

I'm learning how to drive stick in my d21, this seems like a really good mod, why did they put this damper in here?
Being a tall guy I'm always find it hard to fully disengage thclutch, does this mod lower the peddle position thus giving me more space to clutch?

Doesn't change engagement.

The damper is there to make it easier to drive and smooth out clutch movements.

Just out of curiosity has anyone experienced some sort of driveline failure or transmission wear after driving with it bypassed for awhile? I've been on the fence about bypassing it for a while but I thought it was there to reduce shock to the drivetrain caused by the clutch doing it's thing. I bled mine out after the transmission went back in and found it helped a little.

It just dampens clutch input.

i had a car that did NOT have one of these. its basically to prevent shocking the drivertrain with a clutch drop.

I broke the clutch hub and a spring came rolling out of the hub and got jammed between the PP and disc. it made it effectively like the clutch wouldnt engage.

I have a different car that DOES have this feature and once i dumped the clutch super hard to get into a small slot in traffic (cause im an asshole and i cut that dude off for no reason....youth...) and it caused the clutch to slip and engage a little smoother. eventhough i was off the pedal. ill admit, Honda did that because the car is notorious for making "drivetrain soup" if you dump the clutch too often.

granted those springs in the hub of a clutch are to prevent it from shocking the drivetrain and allow a little give between the disc and hub but theres only so much there and its a protective feature. if you are getting into that delay valve often, or thnink you are, maybe adjust your driving style a little?
