Dual Disc Clutch, Updates and For Sale
Posted by: vairmech ()
Date: February 21, 2020 02:14PM

I have done a little updating to the dual disc clutch. It now can be adjusted after some wear and the picture just tells the whole story, 14.2 lbs total weight!

I don't have the starter ring welded on yet but it is sitting there. There has been a price increase because of material costs and I am only increasing by half and absorbing the other half of the increase. The price now is $975 plus shipping.
I'm pretty sure this is the lightest clutch that is available. I don't know what the old Tilton clutches weighed but good luck finding one.
This clutch is a plug and play, it works with a clutch cable. No hydraulics needed. I do have different diaphragms available if you really think you need more pressure but you better be putting out better than 275 HP.

Ken,

Am I understanding this correctly? That is flywheel, pressure plate and dual disks for $975? Starter ring welded on too?

Very nice work.

Thanks,

Thanks much for the additional info. One last couple of questions others may have too.

Is the assembly balanced and marked for installation?
What if anything needs to be changed from an OEM parts type rebuilt install?

Thanks,

And, I'd ask Ken, is this clutch assembly streetable? Say, for your average 3.55 gears, stock diameter tires.

To answer the above questions, I had one fellow check the individual component ballance and didn't need to change anything. He had access to dynamic balancing equipment! Personally I do not believe in assembly balancing clutch parts, this has been debated here a lot!

Can this be used on the street? The quick answer is yes. I know there are at least 2 people that drive this on the street but not as an everyday driver. The clutch is a bit on/off but can be modulated if you really know how to drive a stick.

This is a bolt in replacement clutch system, unbolt your flywheel and start installing these components in order. This system works with a clutch cable and a stock throw out bearing. The adjustment is a little different than stock.
