    Anyone ever use a westling clutch product? I'm looking at a westling clutch kit marked as "New in box/never used" for $40 on ebay. All the clutches I've priced out for my truck are $100-200.

    How different or crappy can it be? Anyone ever hear of "Westling"?

    The truck probably won't get more than 5000 miles a year, either, so I'm not terribly concerned with how long the clutch will last. Although, if I loan it out or teach my wife to drive stick on it, I may want something that'll take some abuse...

    It's a remanufactured clutch. I'd stay away from it. Re-man clutches have a bad habit of exploding pre-maturly. I had a couple of them (reman ones, can't remember if they were westiliings or not) explode within 1000mi. Go to any reputable trans shop and they will tell the same thing, don't even bother with a remanufactured clutch. Just spend the $200 and get a luk and no worries. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.

    ooooh, that would suck... Thanks... I figured something like that would probably be the case... "If it's too good to be true, it probably is"...
