    Just like the title says, im trying to figure out what the clutch fluid accumulator is there for and wether or not its needed? Mine recently got stripped out while doing a clutch job so i just bypassed it cuz i need my truck, and the dealership said $120 and it would take 7-10 days to get a new one. After getting the truck all put back together and bleeding the clutch line, the only difference i can feel without it is that my clutch pedal is softer.

    Thanks

    It releases the clutch smoother for novice drivers. I removed mine. It makes the clutch a little bit easier to depress and gives it better feel. It is also required if you're installing a twin disc clutch for the extra travel needed to disengage the clutch. I have a Competition Clutch Stage 3 dual friction clutch and needed the extra travel for my clutch to disengage completely.
