Clutches

I know this topic has been beat to death, but most of the threads Iíve found were several years old so looking for new info. Most of everything Iíve read says southbend or valair. Truck is an 01 cclb drw, currently has FFD 180/30ís, dieselsite ww2, straight pipe, php hydra with gearhead tunes (will be changing tunes when I do the swap, probably jelibuilt or Dan K). My reason for replacing the clutch is Iím swapping from the 4r100 and donít know if the clutch is in good shape or not (has 180k on it). Also, what all else should I replace while I have the trans out of the truck? I came across the transmission for a smoking deal, was originally gonna go to a built auto but it saves me money, and Iíve wanted a standard for awhile, but Iíll have everything I need for the swap. Looking to just replace the clutch and related parts. The truck is a welding rig but doesnít see many trailers, Iím looking for a nice daily clutch that can handle the extra power I have in the motor. I eventually plan on doing more motor work but thatíll be down the road. Are there any clutch kits thatíll have everything I should replace? Thanks!

Re: Clutches

I have been looking for info on clutches as well. seems like most everything I've been searching for lately just brings up very old info.

I think you are right though it seems southbend or valair and people like both and people hate both for what ever reasons. Luk is also another brand that pops up but not sure if they cover your hp range.

the only other thing I have found is to call ea brand and tell them what you are doing, plans for future upgrades, etc and they will recommend the right clutch for your goals. I'm sure there are some other good brands out there but those are the ones i keep coming up with as well.

are you going to stay with single disc or dual disc? Did you get a chance to talk to [email protected]?

Re: Clutches

Didnít get the chance to talk with him, but ended up talking to some local guys and everyone says stay with south bend. Went ahead and bought the south bend ďstage 2Ē 1939cb. Should be fine for my horsepower range, for now

Re: Clutches

I got a south bend but I went with dual disk. It was $1350. I seen way to many threads about the upgraded clutch slipping. I had the valair and it was shot in 75k. It wasn't worth the risk of tearing up a clutch again so I spent the extra money.


Did you get the spacer that goes between the trans and engine?

Re: Clutches

Weíll see how this one does, donít plan on doing anything crazy with the truck, mostly just a daily driver. Which spacer are you talking about?

Re: Clutches

It's like a piece of sheet metal that is cut out for the bolt pattern and the starter. The are not made anymore and the only way to find them is in the junk yard.

Re: Clutches
