    After a hard day of wheelin, my clutch went out on the way home. Had to get my dad to come tow me. I've started dissasembeling it tonight and was wondering what people thought would eb a good replacement. I was looking at Luk, centerforce and Ram, but whatever is going to work the best will do.

    K-5- because size DOES matter!

    Go with a centerforce Dual friction clutch. Its the best one out there. It is a little more than the other clutchs, but will take alot of abuse.

    <font color=blue>i agree with DESERT DUELER, centerforce if you can afford it, if not napa carries a good heavyduty clutch pac. just make sure they give you a new one and not a remand one if you go that way[​IMG]

    If you buy the one from NAPA make sure they give you the correct throw-out bearing. A good friend of mine had to pull his tranny/transfer out of his 79 right after we....I mean he put the engine in because it needed a long throwout bearing and we........I mean he had the short one......

    i also agree on the centerforce. i hav the centerforce 2 amd it hold up quite well, but if you have the money go for the Dual Friction.

    You know who I am

    hey chevyracing, that must have really pissed your freind off to have to pull the tranny and transfer twice while you just sat there and watched before he got the right part. [​IMG]

    I've had good experiences with street/strip Hayes clutches. They seem to take a lot of abuse.
