I have one that I'll put in my SE when I have the money to finish the bottom-end of the B20B-VTEC

Heres another hydro conversion kit that passwordjdm is selling by a company called innovative mounts, Ive heard of their crossmembers before but not much about their motor mounts before:
CLICK HERE

If nothing else the price is right and it seems to be a quality product they make, given their in-depth description..

Just curious... why?
So you can use the B-series hydraulic transaxles of course! The demand is there since most later B-swaps (anything built MY1992 or after) come with a hydro tranny, and B-series cable trans are getting more and more rare. And, the ones you do find need to be rebuilt.

Also, the hydro trannies let you use the super-tight gearsets of the Type R's, since those gears won't fit in the cable boxes.

Plus, hydro just feels smoother! :p

I've driven different D series cars with cable an hydro, and I just like the cable feel better. It's definitely not smoother, but it just... FEELS better, I can't say why. I was happy with the hydro clutch on my last bike though, it's much easier on the fingers.

innovative makes an adapter kit for d series cars, its just like a plate and a hinge to allow you to use hdryo trannies in cable actuated cars...is this what you are looking for?

For the b-series guys who are buying hydro-cable conversions so that they can use the hydro gearset.... You do know that by using a 92-93 YS1 case, you have a tranny that uses all of the hydro gearsets and everything, but in a case -designed- to be a cable case? I've felt the clutches in hydro-cable converted cars using hydro trannys with cable pedals, and it doesn't seem right.. even the ever-so-popular "has" kit... just doesn't -feel- quite right.

what that has to do with a hydro conversion, ill never know....

but what do you want to know?

and, to make this thread more relevant, john is right. its not that it doesnt feel quite right so much as my leg muscles must be getting huge form pumping this thing, and my clutch cbale keeps stretching out.....dont know how to resolve that yet, i just keep adjusting it.

im sure Tom will chime in, since hes driven the car too. the clutch force is almost ridiculous.

Yep, ridiculous! I thought my car was bad (I had to stop and adjust the cable twice this weekend in traffic at customs!), but yours is... well it's terrible. Really makes you not want to have to shift.

So how hard do you guys think it would be to mount a clutch reservior from, say, a civic and run the hydraulic lines? in other words, it would be a complete hydro conversion. I've seen it done before, I think LHT was the shop doing it. I guess the other question is, would the mount kit for B-series cable trannies work, or are the hydro mounts different?
