Ding many parts.

Thanks

Thank you thank you

I have some options, I am wondering if anyone is familiar with Borg & Beck clutch components and GKN bearings?

What kind of rating should Lucky8 get? Honesty keeps us safer, there are a good amount of flakes out there and I would appreciate it.

Cheers

Pulling back this thread to ask: why do you have to systematically change your clutch cover when you change your clutch plate ? doesn't seem logical to me. That would be like changing your brake calipers when you're changing your brake pads.

Thoughts ?

Cheers

Because the clutch cover has two wear parts:

The spring used to press the clutch cover against the clutch disc

A smooth surface that engages the clutch disc providing additional gripping force.

Well if you're like me then you weight the marginal cost of materials against the potential for failure shortly after. I mean the hours required to do the job in the first place will generally dictate whether or not you replace everything while you're in there.

Basically if you're in there you mind as well replace it. Its like doing brake pads without replacing the rotors. You can do it, but if there is even a thought in your mind that you will be back in there doing rotors in 90 days just replace the part.

No. That would be like changing your rotors (or getting them machined) when changing the pads, which you should always do as well.
