Does anybody know where he can get one, that might be from a real car, bike, or something similar which could be used? The whole DIY hydraulic handbrake build could be done for around ~ 100?, and by buying a slave cylinder in pull form from the US he could just cash out some more buy himself the Heusinkveld one or even the DSD version.
Basically what he is looking for, just cheaper, if possible(?):
Wilwood 260-1333 Clutch Slave Cylinder
Surely there must be some ?ber cheap ones for like 30 - 40 ?/$ flying around out there?
Or does someone know any similar parts that could be used? I mean, the core idea is just to have something that works as a buffer to simulate the feeling of pressing a brake, but not just by a simple potentiometer or loadcell. It acts as a resistance on a spring on a firm rubber buffer to emulate the feeling of the brake pads being pressed on the discs.
If he can't find a cheaper one than these Wilwood ones, than he's just gonna by one, try it out and maybe mod the Fanatec handbrake with it as the constant failures are just a big annoyance.
One question is just how big a slave cylinder does he actually need? There are some tiny, tiny ones used to convert cable clutch motorcycles to hydraulic, but they may not provide the effort he's looking for; I can't think of any hydro clutch bikes that use a pull cylinder out of the box. Here are some if he wants to try that. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/111969628498?lpid=82&chn=ps&ul_noapp=true
Pull slave cylinders are extremely unusual for USDM street cars. I can think of several that have pull *clutches* (anything with a T-56) but I can't think of any off the top of my head that have pull slave cylinders from the factory. They're mostly confined to race cars and transmission swaps. Here is one cheaper offering: http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Speed...gn=CSEGOOGLE&gclid=CJ3wypjJn9MCFdO2wAodRhAE8g
