Do you want the one with the throwout fork on the passenger's side (hydraulic clutch) or the one with a mechanical clutch with the hole on the driver's side? I've got both.

The coroner blamed the crime on a cereal killer!

Factory stock for 3100 or 3200. So what was the hydraulic one used on? Didn't know about them. LCF???? Forward control???

Don't remember the exact years, but in the late 50's-early 60's there was a dual-chamber master cylinder that had one reservoir for the clutch and another for the brake. The clutch slave cylinder and the hole for the throwout fork was on the passenger's side. They were on regular pickups as well as specialty rigs, IIRC.

I think the housings with the fork on the right side were on '60 to '62. My friend has a '61 with that setup.
