Hi my 3.8 has the long version of the slave cylinder not the short one, is there any problem with this? It has always worked well but now has just started to weep.

Hi, you need two different size stamps, one for engine and gearbox etc and one for valve clearances. To make it look original, don't make positioning of letters and numbers to perfect.
