Re: CLUTCH PROBS....HELP

have you called SB? did you replace the throw out lever arm?

Re: CLUTCH PROBS....HELP

i called southbend and they told me to remove the helper spring and bleed the slave cylinder. but when i did that nothing changed. the throw out lever arm? are you talking about the fork?

Re: CLUTCH PROBS....HELP

this is not what I wanted to read, just got one of these clutches. it arrived today now I 'm having second guess about putting it in. not at all what i was expecting for 900 bucks. looks to be a POS stock pressure plate and disk w/4 springs that I've seen picture after picture with the springs broken. I will wait to see if others will post . do not want to have to do this any more than i have to . sorry to interrupet will post a new thread.

yes, Ford as well as SB has an updated fork, may or may not be the problem

I would bet the pics you saw were off the pos stocker with the springs puked out, been there done that.
I ran this clutch for over a year with multiple hooks to a sled, and one were I smoked the heck out of it, let it cool down and ran it for a few more months before I finished it off playing in the sand.
If you look at the disk surface it is much narrower than stocker.

I would not hesitate to run it again if i were to run a single disk again my .02

Re: CLUTCH PROBS....HELP
