What are these ?

O.K I'm going to show my inexperience here. I've replaced clutches before but they never had these little things on the pressure plate. (see attach) What the **** are these things on a new centerforce DF clutch ?

I just got the same clutch, and wondered the same thing!

Re: What are these ?

Those look like weights that the faster you spin the clutch the tighter it grips from centifical force pushing tighter against the fly wheel. Just my guess.

Re: What are these ?

Sky_hi has it right - those are what makes it a centerforce! Little weights, more claming pres. at higher RPM and whatnot, IIRC.
