Default Ragetek Clutch Pivot Arm in stock. Fix the clutch pedal SLOP!



Problem: For 03-05 SRT4's, the hydraulic clutch master cylinder connects to the clutch pedal via whats called a Clutch Pivot. The master cylinder connects to the clutch pivot and has a plastic locking clip to hold it in place. Over time ,the plastic locking clip will break, and or wear away and cause inconsistent clutch engagement/disengagement.

This piece replaces the factory plastic clutch pivot piece altogether with an alumium body, bearing grade bronze bushing, cover plate, bolt and e-clip.

This gives you a MUCH more solid clutch feel, and will eliminate any clutch inconsistencies. Plus, its very simple to install, and only requires a socket set, and about 5 minutes to remove the factory piece and install the Rage-Tek clutch pivot arm!

Heres a photo showing a stock, new clutch pivot arm, a Rage-Tek clutch pivot arm and a stock pivot arm that the bushing is worn out on.

Epic - check out this thread ==> Push Rod Issue quick fix!!!

There are some very creative solutions that will keep you from having to buy a new master cylinder.

Between these solutions and the MPx pivot arm, you should be all set....

I'm kinda iffy on using an F350 push rod, but I'll look into thanx. It'd be nice if MP sent me free Clutch Master Cylinder, or at least %50 off. But I don't even get a reply from them smh.

How can you post something like that? When they pulled their version from the market they offered EVERYBODY a full refund. If you chose not to take it or didn't know about it, that's unfortunate for you. Did you have your pivot greased? How'd you have it adjusted?

Based on the success of the people who are using F350 rods or some who are even making their own, I may do it BEFORE mine breaks again to eliminate the issue completely.

...was the rod partially bent before the MPx pivot was installed and how long has it been there?

This all sounds like a huge headache... I hope I never have this issue. I've got the Ragetek clutch pivot arm but I've also got a thick washer on it and two C-clips just to be sure. Also greased up. So hopefully <crosses fingers>

Epic -
I dont understand why you have a cpa without a cover plate.
We sold a batch of about 50 to start, and we then sent out 50 cover plates to every single customer later.

You should not be running without a cover plate, because its what helps prevent any sort of bending.

I suppose you either did not install the cover plate we sent out, or you removed it for some reason. Either way, you need to get one on your car.

Contact me at MP. Lets get this sorted out.

To date, with our original MPx CPA, we have a total of about 10 people that had CPA's fail. Out of those, I think 3-4 admitted to us they never used the cover plate for whatever reason. The cover plate is CRITICAL, without it in place, its no suprise the master cylinder rod would bend, its what holds the master cylinder rod in place and straight!

Since we've started selling the Ragetek CPA - we have not heard of a single failure.

Great to know. I don't understand why anyone wouldn't use the cover plate.
