10. Clutch Line

This write up is only intended as an overview of converting your CVT Civic to Manual transmission. By reading further, you are agreeing that by attempting to do anything you see here, I am in no way responsible to any damage you cause to your transmission, your car, or yourself. I suggest you purchase a service manual for all the details, such as torque specs & tightening order.
Back to the engine bay, you have 2 options for the clutch line that goes from the Master Cylinder on the firewall to the Slave Cylinder on the tranny. You can buy everything from the dealership or junkyard and install it like Honda did on the assembly line. Or for less $$ than the dealership would charge, buy the Earl's stainless clutch line (search for "civic clutch line" on ebay)

Here is a slave cylinder (with part of the OEM clutch line attached)

I ran the Earl's line all the way from the master cyl straight to the slave cyl, under the intake manifold, close to the block. if I had ran it along the firewall, I would have had to connect it to the OEM rubber hose section to reach the slave cylinder.

And use some teflon tape on the threads for extra protection against any leaks.

Then fill the tranny.
