    • APKWS? That is a nice system, it's how it was done in the old days. I watched a BAE promo video on it and loved it.

          Yes, we are the provider of the fiber optic system for the APKWS, It's pretty neat.

          • Wow that is cool. Not sure why but my world feels like it got a little smaller.

              got the engine back, finished the final assembly, installed the flywheel and clutch, installed a new HTOB, bled the master, bled the line, started bleeding the HTOB, and apparently, it's defective. there's a nice little puddle of hydraulic fluid dripping out from the bellhousing. never got a pedal at all... my machinist did great job on the engine, but he took way to damn long. if I had the engine back, even last week, I would have had time to deal with issues like this.

              oh well, life happens. I'll get a new clutch (clutchnet stage 4) and HTOB(GM) on order before I leave tomorrow, and when I get back, I'll fix it.

              it'll take a little longer then planned, but I'll make it happen still....
              I don't know if your TOB was defective after all. I just finished putting an F23 in my Fiero and the same thing happened to me, except I got some pedal first. After pressing the pedal in a few times after bleeding, I lost pressure and there was a puddle of fluid under the trans.

              I'm almost certain it was because the HTOB was being overextended. To solve this, I spaced the master cylinder away from the firewall with washers. I threw in a used TOB from a junkyard and bled it again. No issues now after pressing the clutch pedal in and out about 50 times.

              I was able to change the TOB out in a few hours by separating the engine and lifting it about 6 inches or so. Was nice to not have to drop the cradle again.

              • I still want to measure it when I get it apart, and see for sure. What clutch are you running?
                Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

                I get bummed out every time I type "titties" in the search bar and nothing pops up....

                • I used about 6-7 washers on each stud for the master cylinder. I'm using an ACT 6-puck with a stock 4-speed pressure plate.

                  • gotcha. I'm going to pick up a new clutch probably next week and get cracking on this thing, I'm going to try a spec 3+ for the cavalier, I think that will be the ticket.

                        • I'm still in school, between classes, it'll be at least another year and a half before I'm to sea.

                          • Man that is a long time to wait(lol). Best of luck on the SSN, hope you get one. What do you need to do on the car?

                              Trust me, I'm not sitting around twiddling my thumbs, I spend at least 10 hours a day minimum in class, then I have to do homework which is usually another 2-3 hours, sometimes 5-6 hours.

                              HTOB is dead, and I really need a better clutch... the clutch might have to wait though...

                              • Oh damn that is alot of time. Now I see why you were not on the site for a long time.

                                Man I'm not sure that you have the time for that HTOB.
