EDIT:

Earls adapter:  http://www.summitrac.../EAR-989538ERL/  **NOTE - I don't know how well the Earls adapter fits in the Starion clutch hose bracket, but it seems to be the only adapter they carry at Summit.

Russel braided hose:  http://www.summitrac...rd=657302&dds=1


My 24 year old rubber clutch line went out last week, and almost left me stranded.  Luckily, I was able to make it home safe.  While trying to get a replacement, I found that I could not get one locally, even through the dealer(which was 20 miles away).  If I order from Mitubishiparts.net, it would take at least a week or more to get to me for around $30-$40 shipped.  I then found a braided alternative to the OEM that was easily available.  It only took 2 days to get to me from Summit....

Parts needed:

Russell -3 an to metric adapter - 641411 - The package I got actually included 2 pieces.  You don't have to get the Russell brand, but this one fit perfectly with the original bracket and clip on the car.  If you get something different, it has to be a -3 an to 10mmx1 inverted flare adapter.

Russell 13" straight braided hose(clear laminated), -3 an to 10mm banjo - 657302 - When attached to the adapter, it is roughly the same length as the OEM rubber clutch line.  It also includes 2 sealing washers for the banjo fitting and is DOT approved.

After all was said and done, I spent as much as I would have on the OEM line.  Perfect fit!!
