Ken, is it possible to post the part numbers for the all the correct components for this installation?

ZR1 actuator with bleeder, the ZR1 twin disk setup and the Katech flywheel are all but impossible to find by searching with descriptions only.

When I type in ZR1 twin disk clutch, I get over 11000 items to search on gmpartsdirect. It seems to break down the search to anything with any one of those words in it, including disk brakes, and anything for the ZR1

You also mentioned two different ZR1 clutch setups, with one having a significantly higher pedal pressure, and going back to the original design.

Dummies like me who don't have any idea where to even start with the research need to know.

I would like to be able to compare directly the total cost of the upgrade vs the LS7, and from there decide on what works for a reasonable price vs the ultimate design.

Thanks for all you do for Fanatics.

Hey Ray, I'm traveling right now, but when I get home next week I'll dig up the part #s for you. I checked Lingenfelter's web site and he sells a steel billet conversion flywheel for $841.95. He sells the whole dual disc setup for $1595. I believe that you can save some money just buying the flywheel from Lingenfelter/Katech and getting the clutch and slave from Byers.

Thanks, Ken

Once I have the part numbers, I can do a price comparison between the two systems. Knowing the Katech flywheel worked for you I'd likely go with that.

I'm going to remove the engine/transmission as one assembly - should be easier to do the clutch replacement and grinding work on the floor. The only question, one the GM info doesn't cover, is how to split the line somewhere between the clutch master cylinder and the transmission in order to remove the transmission without damaging the line.

Update - success removing the entire assembly. Well, relative success. Had to stop the lifting and remove the hood, but got it all out in one piece, so had no problem splitting the clutch line.

The remote bleeder system you used looks different from the info I have on the Tick bleeder. Haven't seen a photo of the Tick installed, so nothing to work with there.

Lonny said he had a problem with the Tick bleeder leaking, so just wanted to see what options are out there, if any.

I know some bleeders were having leak issues, but the one I bought from Total Performance Engineering has performed flawlessly! Unfortunately, they appear to be out of business now. Katech has one listed and I would trust anything that they market, though I haven't inspected one of theirs yet.

Gm part# for the ZR1 clutch is 24260226 and it's selling for $460 @ GM Parts Direct. I got one from Byers for $420 back in 2013. GM part# for the ZR1 slave is 24237569 @ $190 from GM PD and $160 from Byers in 2013.

I'm not certain that Katech is producing the aluminum flywheel any longer, but Lingenfelter is listing their steel version still.

I found this Hinson remote bleeder on the Summit website.

Design looks a lot like the photo of yours, with that slight bend at the slave.

Does yours have a spring loaded ball valve at the bleeder end to keep air from going back in? Otherwise it would be a two-man operation, but much more convenient than going into the bell housing.

No check valve in mine, but I have no problem bleeding the system by myself. Don't have any input on the Hinson line, but it seems quite reasonable in cost.
