New to Viper forum..actually any forum so if I'm doing it wrong My Bad. looking for radiator hoses and headgasket for 1993 Viper. I bought it new but did not realize 30 years and 8600 miles have gone by me. Nothing is wrong with the vehicle but when I found out the tires were hard to find, I decided to start locating parts. Any information were to look, contacts or sites would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help
There is a thread dedicated to this already, but as this is a sticky thread, it might be easier to find...
A fairly recent post on one of the Facebook Viper groups and a thread here made the claim that the LUK LSC002B slave cylinder is the same (or at least a suitable replacement for) as the one for the Gen 1 Viper LSC265B which seems to be unavailable everywhere.
Well, I bought an LSC002B. It is dimensionally identical to the original slave cylinder I removed from my 1994 a couple years ago, including the height of the clutch engagement ring at both extremes. What is different is the length of the tube that holds the quick connect fitting for the hydraulic line coming into the slave, and the length of the bleed fitting. The connector looks to be the same, just the length of the tube it is mounted to. I removed the original and layed it alongside the installed piece on the LSC002B for comparison. I have no reason to believe it would be difficult to remove the split pin and swap the fitting if needed. The shorter bleed should be a simple matter of unscrewing the original and putting it on this slave. Attached are pics of the LSC002B along with the original fitting, and a pic of the box label. I intend to put this on the shelf in case my now-2-year-old slave fails one day and, like right now, replacements are either unavailable or $500.
