    Just pulled my transmission out again and found the center of the clutch ripped out. The center section minus a couple of springs was stuck inside the center of the pressure plate. And it was only 3 months old. Any ideas for a new one ?

    I personally have always liked ACT, Centerforce, and LUK clutches.

    you sure your flywheel bolts are not hitting your clutch. if you ground off too much of the flywheel it could happen.

    If you have any deep mud anywhere you wheel stay away from the centerfarce. The mud will jam them up quick.

    What should I get? I do deep mud. I've been told a Zoom would be good.

    And, exactly which clutch would a '79 K10 use?
