Clutch (again)

well i just got my other new clutch. the first one i got is screwed. failed as soon as i put it in. pulled tranny (to see if i put the disk in backwards I DIDNT) all looked fine, so i put it in again and now it is glazed. my question is should i get the flywheel resurfaced or not? any other info would be helpfull also.
thanks

Re: Clutch (again)

Hey man, does it look like it needs resurfaced??? Dark spots, grooves?? I like to resurface just as a rule of thumb. Have had to do a clutck job with out though. Haven't had problems with them. BUT, (little word with a HUGE meaning) the flywheels were usable when I did not have them resurfaced. Probably would not hurt. I tell you, that is the cheapest 8 inches of lift I have ever heard of. Just wish I could do that and still run my 33's. ha,ha
good luck

Re: Clutch (again)

well the fly doesnt look too bad. i put a cross pattern on it w/ sand paper when i installed it last time and you can still see most of the marks from it . but i dont remember what it looked like after i got it machined. after the clutch was installed before i just drove it around the block a few times. didnt drive it much at all. the only reason i did this was because i heard it may take 30 or so normal takeoffs to seat the clutch right.

Re: Clutch (again)

first time i used some hy perfection crap or something similar. this one i ordered remanufactured (cause if it goes out i dont want to be out much more dough!) however this reman. looks better than the other one. actually the clutch disk appears to have a noticeable thicker friction surface. press. plate is already cross hatched. guess i will see if it is worth a damn. i got it from carparts.com and a 25% discout which made it better.

Re: Clutch (again)

For as long as I've been working on cars and and trucks (30 years)I've always
had problems with remanufactured parts.The money you save from buying replacements at a discount auto store is just not worth the risk of having to
redue a job because of defective parts.
Everybody seams to have good luck with Centerforce clutches in Zuks and I'm
sure you couldn't go wrong with genuine Sazuki parts.

Re: Clutch (again)

I would not buy a centerforce clutch if it was the last thing onearth I had one and blew it up within the first trip I took. I put a reman in that I did my self and has lasted till now doing the same trails. If you want good Remaned clutches I know of a place in colorado springs that sells wholesale to the pulic . And will ship out of state with no sales tax. The name ic Clutch Service Wholesale in colo spgs the phone number is (719)598-9188

Re: Clutch (again)

in the past 16 months I have had to install 6 clutches one re-man 4 new all from NAPA. I believed it was because of larger tires, but on the 6 th clutch
I happened on a sammy in the junk yard, ( NAPA was givien me a hard time returning clutches) with a suzuki clutch or what I believe to be, any way it lasted the longest I now have a petroworks clutch, well see how it does.
