I'm sorry, we do not have printouts for each and every vehicle for clutch installations. To replace the bearing you simply remove the transmission and your clutch system is inside. Remove and replace bearing. If I were going to go that far I would definitely replace the entire clutch system not just the throw-out bearing.

With hydraulic clutch systems the closer the top to the pedal the clutch engages or disengages is a sign of being worn. There is no adjustment so once you reach the top it is time to replace the clutch.

Answer

Justin,

The first thing I would do is find out if the clutch was replaced. If it was it is possible that the bearing was installed incorrectly on the clutch fork. this would cause undo resistance. Other then that it is possible that the master cylinder is building pressure and blowing the slave. The next time you do the job replace the master and the slave at the same time.

If it is an adjustable pressure plate you do it on the clutch itself. Have someone push in on the clutch pedal to release the clutch then, depending on the style of clutch you have, you will need to rotate the ring clockwise until the clutch is adjusted. If you would like a little clearer answer refer to our semi-truck catalog portion of our webpage and there is an adjustment section.

FREDDIE PASOQUEN,

This only a guess, but I would say that you replaced the bearing and slave assembly. With your year truck the replacement assembly comes as a whole unit, meaning the bearing is full length. When you removed the old slave you did not remove the piston that makes it a 2 piece. Now you are collapsing the clutch assembly. You need to get back into the trans and remove the little piston that is left.

If it is an internal slave it will take removing the bell housing and will take a good 4 to 5 hours. You should replace the clutch while you are in there.

If it is not the clutch fork that is the issue and you are hearing a whining noise I would think that your transmission has issues. Take it to a tranny shop and have the transmission looked at.

If you are unable to get your transmission into gear without grinding this is an indicator that the hydraulics are weak, also, if there is a pedal change in strength, meaning getting weaker.

Paul Peters,

Not quite sure what spring you're talking about, there is however, a plastic pin that goes through the fork into the hole in the side of the throw-out bearing flange. This holds the bearing to the fork for return purpose.

Question

Hello. I just got a new clutch kit from SLP Performance parts. Including Steel billet flywheel, clutch plate, pressure plate.. I also replaced the slave and master cylinder with a kit from GM... The clutch doesn't disengage fully making it hard to get into gear. I have to shut the car off to get into reverse without grinding. When driving, the car shifts fine, however, shifting is still a little rough... also, at idle when in neutral with the clutch engaged, there is a pretty good pulse coming up into the pedal.... And sometimes when I take off from a stop the clutch really chatters... I've done this type of work before, and had an experienced friends help as well. Bottom line is, the thing is awful... The clutch doesn't slip or anything, just shifting problems, the chatter from take off, and the pulsing pedal, and pedal vibration all around.... PLEASE HELP! I know that I have to take the thing apart again, but I would like to know what I'm looking for... I have a few ideas, but I was just looking for some further help.... By the way... ALL parts were cleaned very well before installation.

Thank you very much for any help you can offer.

I Just put your 13 1.25 con ofe in my dodge. After the finishing up and starting the truck , it wouldnt go in gear. So i turned the truck off and placed it in gear and started it, It pulled against it self and slipped the clutch then because the truck wasnt warm killed the truck. I never let the clutch out though. Ive checked all the master and slave cyl. and they all seem fine. Im sure i put the throwout bearing in correctly. Is this because the pres. Plate is to tight? What should i do? Thanks

Answer

Rocco Torres,

If it is a push type, meaning throw-out bearing is separate from the pressure plate, then you have the bearing installed on the fork, I would also check to make sure the fingers on the pressure plate are even where the bearing rides. If it is a pull type, meaning the bearing is connected to the pressure plate fingers, then I would check to make sure that the bearing is clipped into the fingers correctly.

Mickey Trussell,

Try raising the back tires slightly off the ground making sure the vehicle is in gear and the tires are spinning. Then quickly drop the jack to try and pop the disc loose. In the future, when parking you vehicle or equipment for a period of time it is always wise to take a piece of wood and block the clutch pedal down in a release position, this will alleviate any adhering in the winter months.

Question

I am still having trouble with my Con OFE that I installed when I converted my '98 to an NV5600. It is very hard to get the trany into first and reverse when at a stand still. It is the worst when hot. The friction point is at mid pedal if not past the middle some. I have driven this thing like this for over 19k miles and it has not improved at all. If I depress the clutch and hold the shifter up against 1st it will try to move forward and then if I keep forcing it, it will drop in. I have gotten used to just grabbing 2nd and then into first. I replaced the hydraulics after talking with Peter some time back even thought I figured they were okay just to rule that out and no help at all. I am currently running Amsoil 5w30 HDD right now. I have also run the factory oil with no difference at all. I did this same conversion to my uncle's '98 and his works fine. My cousin also has a Con OFE in his '97 with NV5600 and it too works just fine. Other then being hard to get into gear the clutch seems to work fine and is not overly rough or chattery for a performance clutch. I bought this clutch from you in January of '03. Do you have any ideas of things I might try or look for? I have installed many clutches and never had one act quite like this.

Thanks, Mark

P.S. Don't forget this was a conversion clutch to adapt a 1-3/8" input shaft to a stock 1998 flywheel.

Answer

Dave,

Try this, I want you to try and deglaze the clutch. Put it in reverse without a load, slightly let off on the clutch pedal until you START to get engagement, holding it there, raise the RPM up, repeat in first gear. What you are trying to do is make the clutch disc scrape the two surfaces without creating heat. This should help smooth the clutch out.

The simple way to find out is to start out in 1st and shift into 3rd then give it gas to see if the clutch breaks away. If it is engaging near the top of the pedal then your clutch is pretty much at the end of it's life.

Mark Seibert,

It can be one of 4 things. 1st the clutch itself, 2nd the pilot bearing was damaged on the install, 3rd the transmission fluid, 4th the hydraulics. If the clutch is engaging where it should be then you can eliminate the hydraulics. You can try changing transmission fluids, short of that it will require getting back into the clutch system for the bearing or clutch.

Answer

Luna,

If there is not a bleeder on the slave cylinder itself then you will have to manually bleed it. This process is called bench bleeding. Unhook everything and assemble off the truck. Then support the master cylinder in a vice and physically push in on the rod with the cap off the master cylinder reservoir very slowly, keeping fluid at hand to refill the reservoir when you release the push rod of the slave. Do this at least 3 to 4 times until you see all the air gurgle out of the master cylinder and all that you see is fluid transfer. Put the cap on the reservoir and reinstall the unit as an assembly.

I'm not sure if you are getting clutch chatter or bucking or if it is a lack of fuel problem. This is also an older vehicle so I would check your engine and transmission mounts.

Answer

Steve,

You either got a defective system from the manufacturer or you still have air in the system. Try pumping the pedal 50 times and on the 50th time hold the pedal down, crack the bleeder and see if you get any spitting. Once fluid starts to run, close the bleeder and let up on the clutch pedal. Do this 2-3 times or until no more air escapes from the bleeder screw. Hope this helps.

Pete,

I would guess that your hydraulics took a dump so try replacing the master and the slave. If this does not work you will need to get inside to see what is wrong with the clutch and clutch fork.

Push it all the way down- when you let up the diaphram spring shoots the pedal up at you! Not able to slip at all! Anyway- I am interested in your products- can you hook me up??

Installed new clutch, clutch master. Can cycle through all gears when not running. Truck won't start without grounding the starter selenoid (like the neutral safety is engaged) and once running can't get into any gear. Had problems bleeding the clutch down - replaced everything now have full throwout motion but still wont go into gear when running. Does the neutral safety lock out the tranny somehow and is this the likely problem?

Also, check the bracket where the cable hooks up under the dash and see if the weld has broken loose. Also, see if your cable runs by the exhaust manifold. Sometimes it helps to wrap it with exhaust tape to protect it from the heat and swelling

All bleeding screws, if there is one, will be located on the slave cylinder. Pump the clutch pedal a minimum of 25 times holding down on the last pump and crack the bleeder. Allow the air to escape and close the bleeder. Repeat as needed.

Great site! (70k miles, clutch and throwout bearing replaces at 60K) In general the clutch seems to work great (disengages with ~1.5inches depression of pedal, doesn't slip in 2nd or 3rd etc.) However, I cannot easily get into first geat from a stop. If I can get into 2nd (while at stop), I can get back into 1st. Also it seems that fully depressing the clutch - pedal into the firewall helps.

I had a clutch, pressure plate, release bearing and slave cylinder rebuild done. The mechanic also had a reconditioned flywheel installed at the time. After getting the truck back, there is a noticeable "vibration" at idle and under load. There was no vibration before the clutch assembly was changed. Also, the main bearing seal was changed. The mechanic changed the flywheel 3 times, and it got better, but did not eliminate the vibration. I need help! Any ideas?

Hi! Peter I bought my truck new. I've had a little clutch or trans. rattle since new at low rpm's. The rattle seem's to be getting worse as time goes on (35,000 miles). I tow up to 15,000 lbs. on a regular basis. I was wondering how strong is the o.e. clutch, how many miles can I expect out of it & is the rattle I hear the center coming apart. Would you recommend your new double disc clutch as a replacement.

Thanks Jerry

Dave McGinnis,

I would find out if he is using the proper flywheel for the year truck you have. I have heard of companies using flywheel exchange programs and this has always scared me. I'm a fan of putting back in you vehicle what you took out. If the original flywheel caused vibration after is was machined I would find out how he is doing his machine work. This may be the problem.

Jerry Turk,

I would definitely not recommend the double disc clutch for your application. The rattle you hear is simply the springs in the clutch disc. It is not hurting anything and the OEM clutch is plenty strong for the stock engines even if you are towing heavy. Of course that depends on the driver. LOL

this is a good one, its a total mongrel, heres what i have: 60 jeep w/ an 85 corvette hydraulic clutch setup and bellhousing attached to the original t-90 trans, I'm using a stock replacement 10 spline clutch and pressure plate for an 80 v-6 chevy malibu, the throw out bearing, i believe is timken part# 614037 and will fit a 56 chevy or something, i was running a 229 v-6 and just swapped in a 4.3l v-6 which is identical, my problem is my clutch will not release now, i had this problem before when i was originally setting it up before with the 229 and the longer throwout bearing cured it, but all i changed this time was the engine, it is all completely identical to the way it was before, ive already had it apart and found nothing obvious and back together. i bled the slave a few times although it was never touched, it doesnt leak or anything and appears to work properly. ive replaced more engines and clutches than i can count, but this one is messing with me, any ideas would be apprieciated...

Question

Was rocking vehicle out of mudhole,smelled slight burning of brake fluid.After stopped,checked clutch master cylinder-empty.Clutch went all way to floor,would not engage gears.Could not shift into reverse with or without clutch depressed but without using clutch could shift into some other gears.Towed home.Put in DOT 3 fluid into master cylinder and jumped under truck to look for leaks.There's two pre-cut 21/2"longx1/4" slots, one below clutch housing,one up on tranny.Fluid ran straight from master cylinder and came out slot below clutch housing.My Haynes manual says one of two things:Bleed clutch line or I've got a warped or damaged clutch plate. Problem on bleeding (and I know how to do that on brakes and clutches)is Haynes says "remove dust cap that fits over bleeder valve before bleeding. I can't find bleeder valve. Is it in that "hole" inside the slot and could I have blown/scraped off the cover by rocking the truck out of the deep mud hole? Because that slot is awful low and it would seem without a cover that any splash of water would get in there. OR is that supposed to be an inspection hole, because there's another uncovered one on the transmission about 6" away but above, not below. I'm I just not finding the bleeder valve is something else wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated because this is my only work truck! Thanks!

Question

Clutch pedal all the way to the floor after intense shifting from 1st to reverse while trying to "rock" truck out of deep mudhole.Clutch will not engage at all.Without clutch, can shift into all gears (engine off) except reverse.No hydraulic (brake)fluid in master cylinder, it leaks by gravity straight to where the clutch plate is and out a pre-cut "hole" (looks like an inspection hole because there's another on top,near the trans.Cannot find the bleeder valve or its cap to bleed and check for leaks.Was there a cap over this "inspection" hole as I call it (its 21/2"longx1/4" and there's one right in and below the clutch housing and one on the upper left behind the housing. 2 questions: Where's the slave cylinder, in front, behind firewall or in the clutch housing? If these are inspection holes there precisely cut but the lowest one under the clutch housing is wide open and definately subject to getting water/mud/dirt in there. Was there a cap I may have blown out by excessive pressure or scraped off trying to "rock" out of the mudhole? My Haynes Ranger manual says "the pedal to the floor and won't go into reverse can only be two things: 1)no fluid (all the fluid runs straight out as I indicated) or a warped/damaged clutch plate. Any ideas? Please!!!! P.S. Where in the hell is the slave cylinder so I can check the bleeder valve and cap that goes over it, that's the no. 1 recommendation of the Haynes Ranger Repair Manual

Question

My truck has been sitting at the Ford dealership since last Thursday. The clutch is not wanting to engage in the morning after sitting in the garage. I usually have to turn the truck off and restart it a couple of times and then pump the clutch pedal to get it to engage. The dealership has already replaced the master clutch cylinder and for about a week all was fine and then last Thursday morning I could not get it to engage while the truck was running, but it would engage while the truck was off. Any idea as to what is causing this? Do I need to tell them to replace the whole clutch? Or is there more to it?

Question

Pulled back tranny to find two springs from the old clutch disk. I inspected the parts and found that one of the clutch fork clips were broken. Replaced the fork and everything from the T.O bearing to the pilot bearing. Put it all back together. Now when I start the car in nutral it starts and runs, can't put it into any gear. I turn it off, can place it into any gear, but when it's turned on and my foot on the clutch it jumps forward. After replacing all cluch parts I contacted the company I bought the tranny from to see if it could be anything in there and they tell me it's a definite clutch problem. I've also checked the linkage for alignment and have adjusted the clutch pedal. Please help me!

Answer

Keith Hughes,

I would venture to say it is NOT the throw-out bearing, I would think it would be the transmission bearing. A bad bearing would squall every time you pushed it in. If there is only squalling when the clutch is being engaged then it is the transmission bearing.

Bill Adams,

The slave cylinder is inside the bell housing. This is called an internal slave and cannot be inspected from the outside. The transmission must be removed. There is a bleeder on the bell housing next to where the line goes in. My suggestion would be to replace the clutch while you are in the bell housing.

Answer

Jason Ray,

First, your clutch is under rated for the type of clutch you are using. The FE clutch should only be used from 450 to 550 hp to the ground. This will cause deterioration of the clutch as well as driving issues. Oil can cause damage as well. Feramic does groove the castings but does not rip the ship out of them like the cerametalic does. After you get into it give me a call to see if we can fix you up.

My guess would be that you installed the bearing and clutch fork improperly. The fork and the clip need to slide into the groove of the bearing together. The wrong way is to slide the back flange of the bearing between the clip and the fork. This will cause a travel and release problem. Back to work LOL

This type of unit has a pull style throw-out bearing clutch assembly. The casting in the pressure plate is very thin and tends to warp when heated which causes the to bearing to drop. Once cooled the casting can re-flatten.

I don't believe your truck carries a hydraulic system, it should be a mechanical system. If you are going to leave your truck sit for long periods of time you should wedge a piece of wood between you clutch pedal and seat keeping the clutch pedal depressed so it cannot adhere to itself.

Question

I have had my clutch replaced. I believe the new clutch is a Luk. The stock clutch seemed good with 110K miles but there was bearing noise. The noise is gone but I have clutch chatter now. The installer has already replaced the replacement clutch a second time and sent the first replacement clutch to his Luk supplier. They said there was nothing wrong with it. He has resurfaced the flywheel twice. After the second clutch it was good for about 200 miles and the chatter is back. It's most noticeable when the car is hot. The installer is baffled and doesn't know what else to do. Any ideas?

Robert,

Not sure of your word chattering. Chatter is where you get hopping on takeoff. This is due to overheating the clutch. Do not ride the clutch, keep your foot off the pedal. If you mean shattering or breaking, this is normally due to improper gears on takeoff or down shifting. Down shifting is very damaging to the clutch disc springs. Do not use the clutch as a brake.

Question

Swapped the trans with a nv4500 and the clutch with a mu13-1.25 Con-O at idle there is noticably a bit more vibration than there used to be. The moment you get it a bit of idle, it's smooth as glass. The only thing that I could think of that causes this is that the new clutch/flywheel assembly is lighter than the stock Sachs/Borg/Beck unit, and hence vibration damping is a bit less. Does that make any sense?

Question

I just had the clutch replaced. It performs normally until the motor reaches 3000rpm, then the clutch hose starts to vibrate heavily, banging against the body making an awful noise, and the clutch pedal goes soft, as if there was air in the system, and shifting becomes difficult. When the engine goes back below 3000rpm everything seems OK. My attempt to secure the clutch hose keeps the noise down, but the pedal still goes soft. Was the internal clutch slave installed incorrectly, and is there more damage being done beside the synchros on my transmission during the difficult shifts?

I have been having diffulty shifting into geare but off and on. The clucth is about 2 years old.I have also had the master cylinder replaced less than a year ago.A few days ago the truck started but would not shifted into geare.I put in a new slaver cylinder but I still can't seem to get the geares to engage. They will work when the engine is not on but when I start the truck, its like the gears are locked.What do you think?

You should always do the master cylinder at the same time as the slave. This way you leave no room for doubt. If this does not fix the problem then my guess would be your clutch fork and pivot ball.

I think my clutch is going out, when I speed shift from 2-3 gear it grinds but goes into gear, but sometimes the shifter seems to fall into gear without any effort. After the car has warmed up and I come to a stop the clutch makes a squeaking noise from first gear and faintly from second gear. Do you think its the clutch or transmission. Also it still shifts into all gears and stays in gear. It only happens when I speed shift.

Thanks for the 3 springs for the P-Plate. I'm not sure what happen (Yet). everything seemed to go together great, till I saw that the 3 adjuster screws on the P-Plate arms didn't come in contact with the Though out bearing at the same time,, One Bolt is in contact the other is .100 away and the 3d is .200 away, and things shake like the Motors out of balance ?? This P-Plate was great till I put the 3 springs in (This is a SouthBend P-Plate). It seems as if the P-Plate Disk is not centered ?? Please tell me I can fix this without Pullin' the Trany again. Maybe just loosen'ing the 3 Lock nuts on the P-Plate cover, press the clutch peddle a few times, then retighten the 3 cover lock nuts ?? what do you think?

Question

I bought this car in 98 when it had 190K km on it. I added 30K km in last six years. Three questions: 1. The engine stalls if I depress brake and depress clutch paddle together at stop (or red light). The speed when failure occoured could be anywhere from 20-40 km/hr. Stall doesn't happen if I do in such sequence as depress clutch first, gear to neutral, then brake. 2. Also noticed the clutch swith is in odd with the description in Repair Manual (as well as web info for Honda and Toyota) - the continuity is on when the clutch is released while is off when the clutch is depressed. The rubber pad on the arm of clutch rests on the tip of the switch when the clutch is released. I can start the engine with or without the clutch is depressed. Do you have a drawing indicating the correct mounting of the clutch switch? Any bad consequency of keeping the current installation (other than unprotected start when the shift is in gear)? 3. How to tell if the switch is "Clutch Switch" or "Cruise Switch"? The Repair Manual also mentioned cruise swith around clutch paddle. Thanks a lot.

Question

Purchased a 1985 Toyota Supra. Previous owner stated he replaced clutch. I noticed when clutch was dis-engaged (pushed in to put car in gear), it would not spring back up properly. It would come up a little, I would have to take my foot and bring clutch pedal back up (it would still shift gears). I parked the car and went out the next morning to move it. I noticed when I pressed clutch pedal down to put it in gear, there was no resistance whatsoever. The clutch pedal went down to the floor and remained there. I am getting no pressure back from the clutch pedal. It's so many parts associated with the clutch (hydrolic cluth). I verified there was plenty of fluid in the container above the master cylinder. I checked the rubber boot for any leaks (above clutch pedal inside the car), didn't notice anything unusual. I would have to buy parts (shooting in the dark type of approach). I would appreciate if someone could provide a logical means of troubleshooting the problem.

Speed shifting can sometimes be hard to get into gear simply because you're not allowing the transmission to stop. Not quite sure about the squeaking noise but check your cable to see if it runs close to the exhaust manifold. If it does wrap it with some heat tape.

Question

I purchased a custom one-off clutch from you guys about 2-months ago. Eddie built it for me using a Kevlar pressure plate side and the carbon/ceramic on the flywheel side. The clutch has both Marcel and hub springs. My question is, when the clutch heats up, its engagement point seems to get higher. Is this normal for the Kevlar material due to its changing coefficient of friction? I am also using a Fidanza flywheel. By the way, after break-in it seems to be holding great with smooth engagement!

Thanks, Eric

I have a 1994 Sentra 1.6 4 cyl that was sold to me as a 4 speed manual transmission. It appears to actually be a 5 speed. Gears 1 - 4 work fine, attempting 5th gear sounds like trying to put the car into gear without the clutch. I can put it into 5th from a stand still. The engine boggs down and the car feels like it is trying to move but can not (like staring off in 5th gear). Is there a syncro that can be replaced? Can the transmission be repaired or adjusted or should I have the whole transmission replaced?

Quite often there is an adjustable rod by the clutch pedal. Also where ever there is a pivot point in the pedal down to the transmission you may find wear or slop. Repair or replace. This should help your problem.

If this is the 7.3 diesel, they have a clutch fork problem. I agree with you, if they're familiar with what your problem is then they should replace them under warranty. Remember this, it is NOT clutch or brake issues. Those are the wearable items that are not warrantied past 12000 miles, hydraulics are.

When cold, clutch works normally. Drive 20 miles, clutch feel like a brake - wont go down. Sit awhile and clutch pedal goes in easy, but when you let it out, the clutch itself slips some, then releases suddenly. Let it cool, works fine.

Question

My 1995 Pontiac Sunfire manual clutch has stopped working. There is hardly any pressure when I press on it to shift and the fluid is leaking and it is hard to shift in and out of gears. I have almost 90,000 miles on it. We are trying to find out how to check everything on it before just buying a new clutch system. This includes bleeding the bleed valve if that is what you call it. Please get back to me asap as we are down to one car now. Thank you, Carla

if you can help that would be amazing, my 5speed clutch has problems with well shifting,it goes in gear really hard but it only does it sometimes, i bleed the clutch and that fixed it for about a month or so, its doing it again so i bled it again and the pedel gets good, then totally loses its pressure, no leaks i can see but the fluid does go down overtime, so it sucked air in it and i think thats why it doesnt disengauge,now it will run great about 40% of the time and the rest of the time it goes in really hard, or doesnt go at all, it shifts fine when off, my tranny was rebuilt about a year ago and i also got a new clutch then, if you can help that would make my year, thanks

Question

I have a 1988 ford ranger 2 wheel drive with the 6 cylinder engine. I bought the vehicle used. Every since I bought the vehicle, the clutch never seemed to grab good, even slipped. So I replaced the clutch with a full kit. It was better but didn't seem to want to grab well. I also have to let the pedal almost all the way out before it would grab. Well now the clutch is slipping bad. I took the trans out and the clutch looks ok, and the throwout bearing looks good and everything is visually ok. I was thinking for some reason the the throwout bearing was not releasing all the way causing the problem, so I trimmed about an 1/8" off the plastic spacer on the throwout bearing assembly. The clutch starts to grab a little faster then it use to (pedal all the way out) but it still slips bad. Please help?

Question

AIR IN CLUTCH SYSTEM? I recently replaced the 5 speed Mazda transmission in my 94 Ranger because of a damaged 5th gear. Before installing, I replaced the clutch and pressure plate, slave unit and master cylinder. Now, after extensive bleeding (drip and pumping peddle), I have about a quarter of an inch movement at the pressure plate. The transmission, which shifts fine with the engine off, is hard to shift into forward gears and grinds when going into reverse. Pros have told me I must still have drag at the clutch but I can't get more air out. Only the hose and connector were not replaced. Help? I've bled the clutch until the cows came home. Could air be trapped in the connector?

When I go to start my tracker I get nothing but the lights on the dash (engine, brake, oil etc.) it does not try to turn over at all. Then several hours later my husband tried to start it and it started. The next day it started and ran fine. I still took it to the garage and had them do a computer check on it and it came back that everything was fine. I went home and when I started to go to work 2 hours later it did it again. And it has been 9 hours and it will not start. Could this have anything to do with the clutch? The mechanic said he has no ideal of what it could be.

I had a sbc installed and some tranny work, I am in the process of trying to figure out if it is my clutch or tranny not working properly. I had the synchros replaced, bearing kit, and input shaft replaced. the problem is when I shift with the clutch pedal all the way on the floor it still won't go into gear like the input shaft is still spinning barely so I have to float it into gear everytime. I was told that my input shaft might be resting on the pilot bushing causing the shaft to still spin slightly. I am just trying to find a starting point since the transmission shop that did the tranny work said it was the clutch and the guy I had do the clutch said it was the tranny. So if you have any ideas I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Question

I have 49,000 miles on the car and clutch needs ot be replaced. Dealer says there is a problem with the fly wheeels in this model and needs to replace the fly wheel as well. None o f this is under warranty since they deal with it as wear and tear like brakes. However, if the fly wheel is bad wouldn't that affect the lifespan of the clutch? It seems odd to have blown out the clutch at such low mileage with normal driving. And since they admit a fly wheel problem I was wondering about the possible connection.

Question

Replacing the stock clutch, I would like to do something with a very long life and fairly high power potential, in case I go to a single turbo when the stock turbos fail.

I have been considering the Tilton carbon 3-disc and the RPS carbon/carbon 2-disc.

What would be the correct South Bend? The picture of the Supra disk is unsprung? Would that mean the stock (very heavy) flywheel is needed? Or could the aluminum flywheel be used? Or do you make a sprung Supra clutch for an aluminum flywheel?

Thanks,

David

You need to pump the pedal at least 30 times holding it down on the last pump. Crack the bleeder until fluid runs, close the bleeder. Repeat the proceedure until air is completely gone.

I think you have a valid point. If the flywheel failed prematurely, it would definately help the clutch to fail. If they are replacing the flywheel under warranty then the clutch should be replaced with it. I would certainly press this issue.

Both the companies you referred to are a very good product but may be over kill depending on what your intentions are. Yes, we can do a sprung hub, I would recommend calling our toll free number and asking for the DXD dept. to see what we could build in the single disc clutch for you.

We do not offer double discs for this application. We were able to get our single disc to hold in our supra up to 650/700 hp. Now that we are at or over 1000 hp we are using a double disc.

How do I adjust the clutch and the brakes

Question

My clutch is slipping in 4th and 5th gear. It has 38k original miles on it and the guy I purchased it from said he replaced the clutch at 10k. Is there a way to visually see if it is in fact the clutch itself is the reason for the slippage. Am I able to adjust it and if so how?

Thanks a bunch! Ross

Either the flywheel was improperly resurfaced or the pressure plate is not bolted down completely or it is a bad clutch.

Answer

Ross,

There is no adjustment, as for knowing if it is slipping, start out in first gear then quickly shift to 3rd. Put the gas down and watch the tack. If the RPMs shoot up, and the vehicle is not speeding up, then the clutch is slipping.

Question

The balance point on my car is much lower than it used to be, maybe an inch off the ground now. When I try to shift into gears it is grinding and very difficult. I can shift, the car is drivable but it is very touchy, double pumping the cluch seems to help but it is still hard. When I was driving the other day the gears seemed to grind very bad and then it seemed much beter. I had the slave cylinder replaced about a year ago and am told that that is probably what is wrong with it again. I am told that replacing the slave cylinder is an easy job but I can't seem to find any information on how to do it. Could you please help even tell me if you think it is the slave cylinder and how I would go about replacing it. There are some days that are better that others but I need to get it fixed it is getting rediculious

Have you added any HP to your truck? I would not call it normal to wear a clutch out that fast. The one thing that I don't like about the factory clutch is that if you noticed from the onset that the clutch engaged near the top of the pedal. They have been set this way from the factory not allowing much room for wear.

I am not quite understanding...you don't have any movement out of the slave or it can't move any further? If it is at it maximum travel the check to make sure you have the clutch installed properly. ie clutch disc in the right direction. If the slave is not moving at all then bleading the system is next. Read above for the procedure.

I'm concerned about the push together hose fittings and plastic lines. Any other fittings avail for the hyd bearing that I could connect a steel flare line too?

Thanks!

Question

1996 Ford Ranger 2WD 2.3L, 98,000m: For a few months, my clutch has been slipping and I had to fill up the clutch fuid every week or so. I figured I needed a new clutch, and that the slave cylinder was leaking. I replaced the clutch, pressure plate and entire slave cylinder, got everything back together and after bleeding the system I still can't get the clutch to disengage enough to get into any gear. I can see the slave cylinder travel about half and inch or so, and it is definitely pushing on the pressure plate. First question: how far should it travel? Is there ANY adjustment to the system considering the new clutch is thicker than the old? Is it possible my master cylinder is bad? That seems odd since I was able to shift before. I've bled the thing over and over and tried different methods -- is it possible that air is still trapped somehow? Thanks in advance for any help -- I'm very frustrated after doing all this and I just want my truck back!!

Peter, What clutch do I need? I have a 01 HO 6-speed. My Mods are Mach 1.5s injectors and a Catcher"MAD" ECM. 4" exhaust and a BHAF. I do not plan on adding any additional power and my stock clutch is not slipping yet, but I haven't towed anything since the injectors were installed. Do I still fit with in the Con-O or do I need the OFE. I tow a 10,000lbs 5th wheel and a gooseneck about the same weight. I don't tow all the time, probably 1-2 times a month. If you need more info. let me know. I have never dynoed my truck, but could if it is questionable. I'm not trying to be cheap, just don't want too much or too little clutch.

Question

I installed one of your MU1947 ConFE clutch kits. Love the clutch but I seem to be developing troubles after 10K miles on it. I have approx 425hp and 850ft lbs torque at best. My problem is when I push the clutch pedal in to shift into gear at a stop, the clutch is not fully disengaging. By this I mean it takes many times trying to get the trans into any gear. I have also noticed that when I pull into the driveway and depress the pedal that I sometimes cant shift the trans out of gear and into neutral. Again it feels like the clutch is not releasing fully. My truck only has 27K miles on it and shouldnt be worn out.?? The pedal feels fine and nothing seems to have changed. I have changed trans fluid less than 200 miles ago, inspected the clutch master and slave cylnders many times and have found not troubles here. Does your clutch add extra load the the clutch hydraulic system and cause them to fail? This is one of those cheap sealed units that have no adjustments as you probably know. The trouble is slowly getting worse over the past 800 miles. I tried to blow any dust out of the flywheel housing thinking this might be a problem but no dust and no improvement. Is there anything else I can check before pulling the trans? If I do pull the trans and find a problem with the clutch, is it rebuildable by you or do I need to purchase a whole new clutch setup? What might I do next? Thanks, John.

My pickup is a 4x4 with a v6 engine. It has a five speed transmission. It has been hard to get into gear for some time, and then about a week ago I couldn't get it to change from one gear to the next while I was driving. I had a new clutch, pressure plate and throughout bearing put in about a year ago, but it doesn't act like it did when I needn't those repairs. I thought maybe it was the hydraulics of the slave cylinder or the clutch master cylinder, but I can't tell that it is leaking and it seems to be full of fluid. I took the slave cylinder loose and I couldn't see that it was leaking. I took a bar and tried to push on the arm from the pressure plate and I couldn't make it release. I don't know how tight that pressure plate is supposed to be. Please someone tell me what is wrong with my truck before I start spending a lot of unnessary money buying the wrong parts.

I took the slave cylinder loose and I couldn't see that it was leaking. I took a bar and tried to push on the arm from the pressure plate and I couldn't make it release. I don't know how tight that pressure plate is supposed to be. Please someone tell me what is wrong with my truck before I start spending a lot of unnessary money buying the wrong parts.

I just had replace the clutch less than 500 miles ago and now there is a noise coming from the motor or transaxle. There is 96,000 miles on the car. I thought it might be the main bearings because that car is known for crank walk, but that did not correct the problem. It sounds like a bearing wine, could the throw out bearing have gone in 500 miles or could it be the pilot bearing. I didn't change that, and now I'm thinking I should have. There were no parts in the oil pan when I had it off either, so I think it's maybe something when I had changed the clutch. Thanks, Josh

Hello, I have a 2004 4x4 crew cab 6.0 l powerstroke 4.30 axle, that I carry a camper on. the weight of the truck w/camper is right at 15k. I have the 6 spd man. and have had no problems untill I installed the Banks exhaust and 6 gun system on this truck. Now the power over runs the stock clutch, and thats not even really cranking up on the adjustable power module. Im really conservative with the truck, but wanted the power for towing my boat or other trailer around in conjunction with the camper. Total gcvw is between 18k and19k, but now I'm afraid to try and tow with the problem already there with just the 15k truck/ camper. Is your product something that can help and if so, how much is the clutch set. Thanks, Rick Ph. 661-373-2850

If one or more of the fingers of the prssure plate are uneven it could cause this noise. Also when you push in the clutch is when the pilot brg. comes into play, it could be causing the noise as well.

Question

I've recently been experiencing some trouble with my transmission slipping, or seeming too anyway. Umm, Sometimes when in gear, when you try to accelerate the RPMs will go up really fast. My father thinks it's the cluth plate or something. Then today, about 2 weeks after i noticed the tranny prob., there is a pool of a reddish oily fluid in the footwell of the driver's side. We traced the drippings up to behind the steering column somewhere, and not actually from the brake pedal or anything like that. Could you tell me what the prob. might be, and if the tranny prob. and the fluid could be related. Also if this could be related, i've noticed a very gassy smell recently whenever i turn the heater on. Thanks.

The radio, clock, and power mirrors have begun to work intermittently. I can start the vehicle and the clock and radio will not work. If I turn on the headlights, the clock will come on but the radio still does not work. Sometime later while I am driving, the radio will just come on. Often, it will turn off shortly thereafter. The dealer has run a diagnostic check on the system and did not find anything wrong. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

If it were the throw out brg it would do it in all gears or out of gear (neutral). You may want to have the front brg. of the transmission looked at.

You can use two little screw drivers to shove the ring back or find a local tool truck dealer and purchase the proper tool.

Answer

You first need to find out if your clutch system is hydraulic or cable. If hydraulic, the fluid could be coming from your master cylinder. I believe your dad is right about the clutch causing the slipping. If it is cable actuated it may take a simple adjustment and the red fluid is coming from something else.

I recently moved to granby, CO for the ski season and it's been very cold so far. I had the clutch on my vehicle replaced less than two years ago and I'm having a huge problem with it. My clutch pedal has become "squishy" and I can't get my clutch into gear. I don't think it's the clutch itself. Is there a possibility the pressure is gone b/c of the extreme cold and if so how do I bleed the system to get pressure back? Thanks SOOOOO much! --Stacie

Question

I have a 1996 Ford F-150 Eddie Bower addition.A few months ago I had a clutch, pressure plate and the whole ball of wax installed including the new slave cylinder. The clutch paddle is now sticking to the floor of the truck and the truck keeps trying to pull even though I have the paddle pushed to the floor. I have checked the reservoir under the hood and it was almost full. However I noticed that the rubber boot that was in the old one is now missing from the new one. This is something that I feel the mechanic left out when changing the clutch. Will it hurt to have this rubber boot missing? With all this in mind is there a way I can adjust the clutch to prevent the truck from trying to pull when I have the clutch engaged? Just long enough to get me to a garage without having to pay a wrecker service would be fine. I appreciate any help you can offer. John Thomas

My clutch suddenly, on the Interstate, stuck in the "open" or disengaged position. At first it got harder to shift, then, shifting didn't have any effect, enging just raced while in any gear. Got it towed home. Now I can put it in any gear and rev the engine. One front wheel off the ground. and it barely twitches occasionally, in gear. The slave cylinder moves normally when you press the clutch. No fluid leakage. Can shift into and out of any gear, with or without clutch, engine running any speed. No symptoms of clutch wear before this happened. It was sudden. How can a clutch stick open? Thanks, andy crosby

Question

We converted this 6.5 to a solid flywheel from a dual mass. We ordered the flywheel from gm and the clutch kit from Oreily's which is made for this conversion. With the bellhousing on and the engine off you can push the clutch and with a spare input shaft I can spin the clutch disc. you can take your foot off the clutch pedal and the clutch grabs like it is suppose to. You can also watch the fingers of the pressure plate flatten out so it is releasing. With the NV4500 bolted back up to the bellhousing there is no clutch. It will not release at all. With the engine running it is the same. I have also replaced the clutch mastercylinder and even put an extention on the slave cylinder to try and make it have a clutch. There is no weird noise like it may be hitting something with it running. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Any helpful hints and directions would appreciated.
