I do and It requires the later slave cylinder as well.
I did this in attempt to quiet what I thought was a noisy throw out bearing, turned out the noise was coming from inside the transmission...the top chain drive sprocket bearing was the culprit! That top sprocket is connected to the crank shaft and when i release the clutch while in neutral I heard a lot of noise. It wasn't as bad when the car warmed up.
Pulling the transmission led to many other things so I do not have it back in the car yet:-)
-timing chain and tensioner, new gasket set for engine, new motor mounts, rebuilt steering rack, new bushings for the control arm, new bearings and axles rebuilt turbo...is taking some time but the '78 99 Turbo is worth it!
