Speed bleeder for Getrag slave cylinder

Anyone have the measurements on the bleed screw on the mt 285 tranny? I want to put a russell speed bleeder on there instead, if possible and just wondering if anyone has done this and knows which speed bleeder I need or if anyone has the specs on the bleed screw then I can just cross reference it.

Darn good idea...I'd like to do that too.

With any luck, I'll be replacing my clutch master this weekend, (I'm a great procrastinator) and I can check then.

This is a great idea. I have motor and transmission out and apart so this will be useful later when I assemble everything and need to bleed the clutch line.

I can acces it easily but how do I determine what size it is?

I haven’t tried this on a Getrag , but I have done it twice on the MTX75. I just left the clutch bleeder valve open and pumped the clutch. I know it doesn’t sound right but I watched the fluid closely and it didn’t draw back on the MTX, I bet the Getrag is the same. Oh one very very important tip keep the brake master cylinder very full the feed for the clutch master cylinder id about halfway up in the tank.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.

^^^11mm is the wrench size for the hex head.
What we need is thread diameter, pitch, and length.

Sorry bigdukesix;
I never did pull the bleeder out to check the size.
Once I hooked up my Mity Vac, it barely took me 3 minutes to fully bleed the system.
I didn't want to risk losing the bleeder or getting air into the system after removing it.

I do know it's got to be larger than the brake bleeders, since they take a substantially smaller wrench.

I tried my bleeding the Getrag by just leaving the bleeder open last night, and it worked fine. I just used a hose into a bottle and set the bottle higher than the bleeder valve. And pumped the clutch, I did watch the fluid level in the master cylinder carefully and also the fluid come out of the bleeder. It worked very well.

I installed a new cluth and slave cylinder and fortunately I still had the stock slave cylinder. I removed the bleed screw from it and have it. How do I find out the thread diameter and pitch?

Is there a speed bleeder manufacturer I can send it to and say send me the same thing as a speed bleeder?

CFM carries the Speed Bleeders for the brakes:
http://focus.c-f-m.com/linesbleeders_1.aspx
I'll bet if you sent them your bleeder screw, they could match it up.
(They also have their own forums on this site: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/f...splay.php?f=82 )

Diameter should be easy enough to figure out.
Pitch is the number of threads per inch.
