I replaced the clutch and slave and master cylinder on my 1990 ford ranger and the new slave cylinder I installed was a perfection slave cylinder. When I went to go hook up the hose to the slave cylinder I realized that the way the fitting on the slave was that I couldn't move the clip cause it was up and down and the only way I can push the clip in is if it was side to side cause of how the hole is on the bell housing there isn't room to do it the way it is. Can anybody tell me how I can hook up my hose without pulling my trans back out and pulling my slave cylinder back out. Or is the only way to fix it is by pulling everything back out and adjusting the slave cylinder and putting it back in?

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
All I can think is remove the rubber access cover at the bottom and use that hole to access the clip with a Hook, to pull the clip or long needle nose pliers to reinstall it.
