STC8358HD heavy duty clutch kit

Anyone know where I can get a kit like this? I think it comes stock on the 130s and the commercial version of defenders.

Is there also a good source for the HD clutch fork?

When i putting in the engine i figured I can swap in a new clutch and release fork. 20tdi lt77 setup

saw them here and talked about on landy zone

I think Doug just got one for his unfortunate 130. At least that's what he showed me and Dave. It's nothing more than a regular clutch fork that has a flat plate welded on the back to keep the pivot ball from punching thru.

The RRC/Disco I 200 Tdi release fork is cast.

The only " heavy duty" piece is the friction plate. which is a 130" one.

was part no. FTC1994, but now superceded to UQB000130


Cover plate and thrust bearing are all the same.

I used to run with one in my old Tdi 90. although I never managed to break a standard clutch in that, i suppose for extra peace of mind it's worth it.

There's not much extra difference between them. slightly different cushion springs in the center bit, and the overall diamater is a bit bigger. Think i measured it to 5mm or so. but work out the extra surface area of 5mm, and it was something like 35mm2, so i suppose it'll help if you're heavily loaded or have a tweeked engine.

I just broke the clutch fork. It was the only part in there I re-used. I am running the HD clutch plate as called for in a 130. The clutch fork allowed the pivot point to push right through the fork. This despite no sign of wear last year and a generouse dab of synthetic grease on re-assembly. My advice would be to put new everything in there. I would definately go with the HD clutch fork. I got a kit from Eric @ Atlantic British for $30. Ne clutch fork,plastic retainer staple, and pivot pads as well as a new "spigot bush".
