    they are OEM replacements. the clutch isn't bad, its normally the pressure plate that is accompanied by it.

    I got a clutch kit from shucks for the gt. Seems fine, and the pressureplate has 18 fingers vs the OEM 15. Seemed fine and I will report back next time I see this.

    EDIT: I have driven 40 miles on it and its great! no problems. I did it on the garage floor in only 5 days, 3 of which were waiting for the flywheel to get resurfaced. Im so proud! 8)

    Hey guys, I bought my clutch from South-Bend Clutch, it's their Ralley model, which by the way is their cheapest. If you want to see more of their products, go to www.southbendclutch.com for more info.

    Yay for racerb! Gotta use the best of the best :D

    Also, the number of fingers teh PP has doesn't really relate to the quality of the part.

    the least amount of finger the more springy the clutch pedal or is it the more finger the more springy the clutch pedal.

    with you owning an alltrac, this is one thing you don't want to cheap out on. considering i won't install clutches on these for anything less than 1K dollars, you should be looking into buying a southbend, spec, or anything compatable with those.

    I know, was just stating the difference.

    I ended up buying an exedy but a nice one i had one of these in my supra, these ones are the same model, i ordered mine locally though.\ and for 300bucks less.

    toytuner, i have an exedy clutch in my st162, its about 3 years old and now clutch seems good, it works, but the pressure plate is f**ked... you can tell it needs replacing, and now i have to start it in first gear with the clutch in sometimes and it makes it a bit hard to change gears....i couldnt tell u which ones better over others cause its the only one thats been in it.

    How does one tell when the pressure plate needs replaced? My clutch has only about 25k on it, but it feels like its slipping sometimes, and other times it grabs right up.

    symptoms of bad pressure plate:

    likely signs
    engine must be switched off before selcting a gear
    car goes into gear easier while letting clutch off half way slowly
    gets worse as it heats up

    possible signs
    clutch not engaging properly
    clutch not disengaging properly

    it would most likely be your clutch that is worn out than your pressure plate i think.?

    But the clutch isn't that old...Although now that I think about it, before I bought the car, it was driven primarily in and around the city, with a new driver... Yeah, clutch is probably fried.

    if the pressure plate wasnt replaced at the same time the clutch was it could be it

    They only mentioned the clutch, nothing about the pressure plate. I dunno, I'm not going to worry much about it until after winters over.

    9 times out of 10 you would get them both done at the same time as a whole assembly
  19. 86GTMonkey

    86GTMonkey Well-Known Member

    Yeah. they probably did both. I still think the clutch is nearly toast, or something else to do with the clutch isn't working right, because sometimes the clutch just seems to slip and not quite engage, and other times it hooks up great.

    check out the master and slave cylinders for a leak in the lines. Sometimes with a new clutch installed one of those items starts to go bad.
