Clutch Kits

Every time you glide to a stop or change the gears, or control your vehicle while turning at low speeds, there is an important unit that ensures the maneuvers are performed properly. This unit tells what speed the vehicle should run and plays a crucial part in the process of sending the motive power to the engine. It's the clutch that allows you to smoothly engage the rotating engine to the non-rotating transmission by regulating slippage between them.

The clutch helps your vehicle to be started and stopped by means of the release or throw-out bearing, pressure plate, clutch disc, and flywheel. The amount of power the clutch provides depends on the friction between those two components. Coated with friction material similar to that of the brake pads, the clutch disc ensures solid contact with the flywheel and allows for smooth transportation of the engine power.

In a vehicle, the engine revolves all the time, but not the wheels. When the clutch disc contacts the flywheel, it locks the transmission and engine together, causing them to rotate at the same speed to power the vehicle's wheels. So, each time your rims start spinning, the clutch disc is subject to extreme pressure as it gets squeezed between two steel surfaces. And someday, because of the frequent use, the clutch plate coating will wear out and the clutch set won't be able to hold the twist or torque anymore. The result? It will slip soon.

Slippage is one of the most frequent problems that may lead to the clutch failure. Unfortunately, it's not the only trouble you might have with the clutch. Sticking is another dangerous hazard as it can prevent your vehicle from going into gears. This can be the result of stretched or broken clutch cable, defective or leaky clutch cylinders, or misadjusted linkage. A hard clutch is also a major problem brought by binding or sticking either in the cross shaft or pedal linkage, cable, or pivot ball. Another problem associated with the clutches is a worn clutch release bearing that is often the cause of difficult gear changes.

The standard clutch is supposed to last for more than 75,000 miles in case you use it properly and maintain it well. Otherwise, the part might break down at an early date. Trucks that are frequently overloaded can have troubles with even brand new clutches. So, how to define whether your clutch needs replacement or not? There are some common symptoms that may warn you about something going wrong. If your clutch judders and you smell burnt oil, it means that your clutch plate is contaminated with oil. Feeling of a spongy clutch pedal means air in the pipe, while vibration signals that the throw-out bearing gets worn out. When you notice the clutch fluid flows down, there is probably a leakage going from either the master or slave cylinder. If any of the listed above symptoms seem familiar to you, don't linger until the last minute, replace your the defective clutch before it brings serious damage to the engine.

This clutch is perfect. Would recommend and would buy again. After installation it had a much lighter pedal feel, but after few days it works close to original. Nice clutch at such price.
