1990 R32, Push Or Pull Clutch?


Recommended Posts

I have a R32 GTR and the stock clutch is slipping very badly, so its time for me to change my clutch. I was told that 32 GTRs change from push to pull clutches half way through.. i was also told that it depends on which month the car was made and not which year. Is there somewhere on my car that i can check the date it was made? i can only seem to find the year it was made.. or can i somehow check if it is a push or pull clutch without taking it to the mechanics? thanks for any replies

man that diagram is way off. no car has a solid line going all the way from pedal to slave. for starters the pedal actuates a ROD which goes into the MASTER. then a line (usually starting solid) goes down to near the slave, then a rubber hose goes the last little bit to the slave. NO GTR has a clutch cable. They are all hydraulic clutches.

Basically you need to stick your head under the drivers side of the clutch and take a look at which way the slave is going. ie is it pushing on the fork from the back, or from the front.

The operation of a push or pull clutch system outside of the bellhousing is identical. Compression of fluid at the master, pushes the slave cylinder out of its housing.

It is the direction of effort on the clutch fork that is the difference between push and pull.

Push, the slave cylinder is foreward of the clutch fork, pushes it backwards, inside the bellhousing the clutch fork PUSHES on the clutch to operate.

Pull, the slave cyinder is rearward of the clutch fork, pushes it foreward, inside the bellhousing the clutch fork (which is mechanically connected to the clutch ) PULLS the clutch assembly to operate.

Simplest way to check is: If the slave is foreward of the clutch fork, it is push, if it is rearward of the clutch fork, it is pull.

Zennon.. get rid of that confusing incorrect information.

nice to know somone agrees with me. :) and can explain it even better!

yes zennon I have no idea what cars you have been looking at mate, but no pedal is pulling on the master cylinder... and none have a pedal connected to the master cylinder by a cable. like I said above, the easiest way to tell is check which side your slave is on in relation to the clutch fork. :)

lol, there is no cable!! :)

ok, in a pull clutch the slave is on the other side of the clutch fork. but it still pushes on the fork, the fork is now doing pulling, instead of pushing. :( push clutch and pull clutch have completely different diaphragms. :)

Get on the ground and look at your gearbox, drivers side..

Should see something along the lines of this:

almost the same anyways.. generic pic.

red circle shows the slave cylinder. that is in front of the clutch fork pushing back, this is a push type clutch.

if your slave cylinder is in the yellow circle, pushing forward, it is a pull type clutch.

slave looks like this - you cant miss it - its bolted to the gearbox with two bolts:

and you cant miss clutch fork either - it looks like a leaver sticking out of the gearbox

here is a pic of my slave on my RB20DET when it was leaking:

    • https://www.3si.org/threads/crusty-white-balls-on-spark-plugs.666041/ If you see little bits of aluminum on the plugs that's a detonation sign. They don't need to melt for there to be a problem. Coil harnesses disintegrating is normal. Welcome to owning these cars. A new one will last decades done right. Run a compression test and see if they're all ok. If so just keep running it.
    • I hear you! Been thinking about this a lot actually and I fully agree. Been wanting to get a second car that my partner can drive as well. But if I'm spending money on a car it has to be something that is fun to drive. And I already have a big boosted boat so want something light and nimble. Pretty high on my list is the Honda S660. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_S660 Modern Honda so hopefully reliable, small, light-weight, high-ish revving 6 speed manual. Rear wheel drive. They are slow but apparently heaps of fun. And Jen loves the look of them. We see them every now and then around here. Main concern is that it's tiny and I might not fit.
    • You can be fully serviced Neo heads for $3000 online, so don’t think i will quite get $5000 for it. I would probably end up just keeping the head for a worst case scenario down the line, best case is i have a new head to upgrade if something happens to the current one in the future, as i imagine these will get harder and harder to find
    • Well, the key thing is still your budget (and time, but you've said you don't have much), and the fact you are happy with the existing 300kw for now. If I were you I'd buy the 5k engine, sell the head (probably for 5k these days as its a 25 NEO), swap your head onto it and send it.  Then, as funds allow, collect parts to rebuild your now spare bottom end properly.
    • Alot of people don’t let others test drive the car, so wasnt a hige alarm bell to me
