No, just the slave. The solid pipe is available though, under a tenner.

The old solid pipe just fits straight onto the new cylinder. Do you have a problem with it?

No the old pipe is good but from the brickwerk picture it only shows
the clutch slave and no fittings the old one pushes on the fitting that's why I'm asking ...so does the new one come with fitting or not?? :ok

Metal pipe has the nut that clamps the flange into the cylinder,plastic pipe has a banjo bolt type with 2 copper washers to make a seal,neither are push on,all clutch slaves are the same AFAIK a picture may help

You undo the bolt on the metal piece that the plastic pipe pushes on to,if it’s been there 30 years the hexagon may have rotted away

Can you post a pic; is it off the van? When I did mine I had to take the slave off with the metal pipes still attached and clean/undo it in a vice.

You plastic pipe pushes onto a 'banjo' fitting as mentioned above. This is held on by a bolt and sealing washers. If you look at the plastic pipe on the side away from the slave, you should see a bot head. If you undo this, then the plastic pipe will come off, attached to the banjo fitting (assuming its not corroded into a massive lump of rust).

there is a picture half way down this page that I think reflects what you have https://shufti.blog/2014/06/21/vanagon- ... adventure/

To fit the new you just need to screw the bolt back through the banjo fitting into the new slave, using new sealing washers (and possible a new bolt if the old one is past its best).

So no fittings, but none are needed as such except for some copper washers.....
