    Are any clutch components, except the fork, different between the mech and hydro clutches? In other words, will I need a different throwout bearing or anything?

    I'm not worried about parts like the pedal and bell, I have that already.

    I am talking about clutch components.

    I am putting my new 465 setup in this weekend I think. I want to make sure I can use my existing clutch as its brand new, along with my current throwout bearing, etc.

    i think the throwout bearing is the same, you may wanna check it out at work tommorow. as for the flywheel, disk, and pressure plate, they are all the same.

    I checked at work, they're different part numbers, but I don't think that's right.

    yeah for the throwout bearing its supposedly 80-85 and 86 up, but what makes no sense to me is that I know my fork is a '79 and my clutch/to bearing work fine now.

    As a person who mismatches parts alot... I used a 1980 SM465 with a hydro bellhousing, behind a 1982 350, in a 1985 cab'd truck...

    to shorten where I'm going with this, I used the same clutch and throwout bearing for the hydro setup as I do for mechanical, and it worked out fine so far.

    nope, all the clutch components (pressure plate, T.O. and pilot) are the same. My LUK ProGold say on the box it is good for 1966-1996 or something Chevy engines with 12" clutch
