Clutches?

What kind of clutches are you guys running? I have a LUK in my cj but was thinking of getting a Centerforce I in the sammi. What about the hawk clutch kits?

Thanks

Re: Clutches?

I can highly recommend both the Petroworks Hi Performance and the Centerforce Dual Friction. I have no experience with the Hawk clutch. If your running big tires don't skimp on the clutch. It's not much bigger than a coffee cup saucer.

Re: Clutches?

I have run several different Suzuki clutches over the years, the best of which is the Petroworks High Performance clutch. You can see my product review article of the clutch here: http://www.off-road.com/suzuki/reviews/petroclutch.htm It's a little cheaper than the Centerforce Dual Friction too.

Re: Clutches?

Im running a stock clutch.. It useto slip bad but fixed that by using a press to to kinda bend the pressure plate so it squeeses the clutch disc more.. hard to explain but works good.

Re: Clutches?

You do things like I do Anton. AMC has a 3 finger preasure plate that was used on some of the 6 cyl j**p engines. I redrill my toyota flywheel for this P. plate.

On the P.Plate, I removed the 3 dowels and changed the 3 preasure springs with chevy 125 seat preausure springs for more strength. My clutch on the stock car is hydraulic, so Im not so sure how hard it will be to push the cable clutch on the sami when I get the engine/tranny combo in it, but if it works, its going to be a really small lightweight clutch/p plate setup. Just have to see how well it holds up to offroad use =)

Re: Clutches?

This was an older American Motors pressure plate. It wasn't the diaphragm type pressure plate, it was a 3 finger style with springs similar to valve springs. It was very small, and moved all the weight to the center of the flywheel which is desirable for circle track applications. Then again, on a 4x4 you may not want the clutch/flywheel real light. hmmmm.. Hadn't thought about that.
