Tate Fanning had the same clutch setup with a Tilton internal slave, and he reports that the feel of the external slave setup I have is roughly the same as the Tilton.


Hope that's easy enough to understand lol

Oh that's good to know. Did you guys both have the same size master cylinder? Tilton recommends a 3/4 master but I wonder if you could get a 5/8 to give you enough travel, and a lighter pedal.

That I do not know. I got the 5/8 master from him so I assume it did not work with the Tilton

I used a 3/4 MC with a tilton, and it's a bit heavy with a ~5:1 ratio and touchy with a ceramic clutch. I think a 0.700 or 5/8 would be the way to go if your pedal ratio is in the 5:1 area

The reason for this is the .75 inch Wilwood MC (same as Tilton 75 series) has only 1.1 inch stroke. The FAG MC has 1.3 inch stroke. When I switched from a FAG to the Tilton in my car, I moved up to a 13/16 inch bore, which restored the fluid volume to my slave to match the longer stroke FAG MC and I got full use of my pedal again.

I wanted to post an update to this info as Tilton has changed their 6000 series bearings a little bit, and it could cause others some confusion as it did for me. The below is what I've found on my setup which is a t5z, an old John Parker adapter, and a Yoshifab 235mm FX400 clutch.

Bottom line up front: the 60-6032 is still a good PN to buy for this application but it is no longer a 52mm bearing as shown in the OP, it now comes with a 54mm radius faced bearing. Tilton made the change so it had a wider variety of applications with OE style clutches.

In 2017 I bought and installed 6000 series PN 60-6104. This came with a flat faced bearing and while it worked, pedal effort was very heavy. Shortly after that I pulled the bearing and installed piston PN 62-612 and bearing PN 62-002, this is the same 52mm bearing shown in the OP. I installed the piston and bearing in my 60-6104 housing, it does result in more piston out of the bore than a "stock setup" as the OP noted. However, I ran it like this for 5 years and never had a problem. It was a huge improvement in pedal effort over the larger flat bearing.

I had the bearing out this year and decided to proactively put a seal in it, which just made it leak, and I was in a rush so I ordered an entire new 60-6032 assembly. I was confused when I got it and it had a different bearing so talked to Tilton to confirm the changes. The housing of this 60-6032 is dimensionally identical to my 60-6104.

Below from left to right: 612 piston and 52mm 002 bearing, current 60-6032 piston and 54mm radius bearing, 60-6104 piston and flat faced bearing.





new 60-6032 assembly in situ at adjusted height for install.





Here's the kicker.. when I first went to move the car I thought I had no clutch pedal and needed to re-bleed it. The new assembly and 54mm bearing have significantly reduced pedal effort. It's now almost on par with the stock hydraulic clutch in my SAAB. Great for the firewall.

So... the pictures/bearing in the OP are kind of no longer relevant but the PN is.

That’s great to hear about the updates bearing.
I’ve always liked the older 52mm bearing since it results in a lighter clutch pedal, but it doesn’t fit over a the t5 retainer without modification. The new bearing looks like a great compromise!

Thanks for sharing updates. I need to get these parts for the same box and Yoshifab clutch setup.
