Has anyone ever replaced the flexible hydraulic clutch line that goes between the firewall and the engine? Mine is leaking. I haven't priced out a Mazda replacement, but I'm sure the price will be ridiculous. Does anyone make an aftermarket one, or a braided steel line or something like that? The fittings should be pretty standard.
The stainless braided lines work VERY well with a heavy pressure plate. The added hydraulic load from the heavy pressure plate can cause the stock rubber line to swell, making your clutch engagement at the very bottom of the clutch pedal travel.
A brand-new rubber line might work OK compared to a 100,000 mile line, but if you're paying the money and putting one on might as well get a braided line - they're cheap and last forever. Corksport and RP also carry them, BTW.

Originally posted by Mahjik I used the one from RX-7.com and didn't have any problems. I've seen the one from the RX-7 Store as well and they appear to be the same.
Interesting, I'll need to double check the part number, but it's different from my old FC SS clutch line and it's definitely different from the stock one. Again, 11/16" is a slight bit bigger than 17mm. Thus, it won't fit into the bracket since the bracket has a 17mm hex on one side.
I'll try re-fitting it when I replace all my clutch cylinders
