    I am at the point in my swap where I need to get clutch and flywheel, but I need advice. I did a search and most people seem to like luk clutches, so I plan on getting a 12" luk pro gold still not sure on diaphram or 3 finger style I wont be in mud that often if it matters it will be mostly rocks and dirt with a lot of dust.

    For flywheel should I just go to napa or checker and ask for a flywheel for an 88 jimmy with a 350. what about teeth count what else do I need to know.

    thanks
    scott

    I just went to schucks for my flywheel. As long as it is for the same year, I don't think you should have a problem bolting to the crank or meshing with the starter.

    I think I would go with a diaphram clutch, though I'm not sure why...:dunno:

    Get a diaphragm clutch. The Borg & Beck style take way too much effort to disengage, and it is extremely hard on the crappy linkage that these trucks came with.

    yea go with the diaphragm clutch, the 3 finger ones get old after a while, also i wouldnt recomend the autozone clutches, the springs pop out and the disk shatters, but they do have a lifetime warrenty (until they see the truck its in):D
