I'm sorry, I thought we were talking about a slave cylinder. The master would be even cheaper and WAY easier. Should be around $250 or less. That's what I was quoted at. I just bought master cylinder for $40 and did it myself in an hour

That $600 for a Clutch Master Cyl. seems quite high for example.

That's what I kept telling myself. That's it, all the big stuff is covered now and then something little would break but the labor on the new part was high. Looking back to last week it was just too much. I had just spent $1200 and on the day I picked it up another $600 was requiring to be spent. At least up to then there was a period of time that would go by unit the next repair. To me it had reached the point of not being reliable as a DD. Now the next owner starting from scratch will have a pretty good car I believe. As for me I had to move on and my ST just happen to be sitting on the lot. Actually it was sitting in the same spot on the lot from I bought my SVT from 10.5 years ago. Here's a parting shot from yesterday when I was able to get both car next to each other.
