Can the hydraulic clutch system be disassembled, cleaned and put back together? It's off the car for now, thought it would be a good time to clean the 20 years of gunk out of it..

The line can be removed from the slave cylinder. It's held in by a roll pin. Not sure about the other end but could be similar.
See pic. "A" is the roll pin, "B" is the bleed screw.

Flushing clean fluid through is a good idea but disassembly is not as there are no rebuild kits available. New master and slave cylinders are available from NAPA, however.

Pete,
That link didn't work for me, must be too old or something.

So no one has ever taken the system apart as a last attempt to repair before replacing? I figure if someone puts them together at the factory I could take it apart. But then again some things only break when it's disassembled. This is why I asked.

One guy was going to attempt to rebuild one of the cylinder but I never heard the outcome.
