American Powertrain Introduces G-Body Hydramax Hydraulic Clutch Kit Designed for 1978 –1988 GM G-Body Cars

As everyone knows, the GM G-body is one of the hottest platforms in hot rodding today. People are doing all manner of things with G-bodies and all of the cool projects have manual transmissions in them. More and more parts are making their way to the market to convert these cars to manual transmission coolness but none of them are as cool as the new G-body Hydramax hydraulic clutch kit by American Powertrain.

Yes, a scant few G-bodies left the factory with a clutch pedal but the vast, vast majority did not. The firewalls in these cars are thin and they will flex like hell if you do not do this conversion the right way. Hydramax is designed to present a stiff mounting option, be completely bolt in and get your hydraulic clutch working perfectly.

Swapping in a stick? You need this.

American Powertrain™ Introduces G-Body Hydramax™ Hydraulic Clutch Kit  Designed for 1978 – 1988 GM G-Body Cars

Cookeville, TN, (October 10, 2018)American Powertrain now offers a G-body Hydramax™ hydraulic clutch kit as a true bolt-on hydraulic conversion for all ‘78-‘88 GM G-body vehicles.

For clutch modifications, the stock G-body firewall is well known for not being strong enough to handle clutch conversion, and often does not have the proper geometry for a universal type hydraulic bracket. American Powertrain’s Hydramax utilizes the stock brake master to locate the clutch master cylinder support bracket ensuring a strong mounting location. The G-body bracket is laser-cut, powder coated and uses a tried and true Wilwood 3/4” bore clutch master for added reliability and easy mounting.

The Hydramax Clutch Kit includes the Hydramax hydraulic release bearing for use with a T5, TKO, T-56 and Magnum 6-speed, and works with the American Powertrain G-body clutch pedal set for a complete manual clutch conversion.  Only minimal cutting is required to enlarge the cruise control hole to fit the clutch rod.

    These kits have come a long way. I installed one in a B body mopar years ago before they had a remote bleeder and the dowel pin in a position where the air could actually be purged from the system. We used to bleed it in the car, before the transmission was installed.
