Note: On the subject of cleanliness need I mention you must not get
dirt, grease, any junk on the parts going back together (i.e. Flywheel-Clutch
9- My recommendation as to parts replacement. Buy a complete set of
replacement parts from a reputable source.
10- PARTS: Pressure Plate - Flywheel - Clutch Disk. and from the same source a Clutch Centering Tool ( small plastic disk and the parts source will explain how to use )
I have used Re-manufactured Clutches in the past and am not thrilled with
them. Your best bet is a NEW OEM Clutch Disk.
11- Re-assembly is the reverse.
11a-Use a cleaner on the flywheel and pressure plate surface to remove any coating the machine shop may have put on the parts to prevent rust.
12- Job should run from 3-4 hrs. and is not hard.
13- Clutch adjustment is 7/8" free play at the Pedal.
14- Take a good look at your clutch cable as this is the perfect time to replace or at least clean and lube with powered graphite (tube type).
15- Parts can run anywhere from $49.00 Clutch Disk only. To $105.00 for Set (Clutch, Pressure Plate, Alignment Tool)
A- Break your new Clutch in gently. Don't sit at traffic lights with the car in
Gear and the clutch depressed (wears out the throw out bearing)
