it is an edlemann brake fitting part number 274000 and they will price match AZ.

i am doing this in the morning. im tired of the soft ass clutch pedal and everything has been changed but the damper. i will post if this solves the problem, which it should from what i have read.
They upped it to 2.99 at autozone. Just changed the price label.

My brother has an 92 SE-R Sentra with a stage 1 clutch that is operated via cable and the clutch petal feel is AMAZING, so this is a definite mod for my truck

it makes a big difference. it is like driving a different truck. it changed the feel of the clutch so much, i had to learn where it grabbed and released again. i would release it too fast, i was used to it being spongy and sluggish. and well it died. a couple of times.

im good to go now lol

I bought one of these today while getting some new radiator hoses. I'll be glad to have a more normal feeling clutch.

and they cant order one for the next truck delivery?

the hardest part of changing it over is bending the lines so you can get the adapter threaded on both ends. i put it on the bottom line first then tightened it before i ever touched the top line. just take your time and bend the line slowly. the last thing you want to do is get in a hurry and break the line.

and be warned that the clutch master cylinder will drain completely. you will need someone to help bleed the clutch. and dont freak out when the pedal goes to the floor and stays. thats normal until the air starts working out of the lines. you pump it just like a brake pedal. 4 or 5 times to the floor, open the bleed screw, then tighten, then repeat. i checked my fluid level after the 3rd time. the level drops fast.
