Title: Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: rokbebop on December 11, 2010, 09:15:28 PM
Hi

Does anyone have any reccomendations on clutch kits?

Whatever clutch is in my feroza has generally not seemed to enjoy punnishment. Never had a problem with it on road, but towing things and driving up steep hills in 4x4 has always made it smoke. I first noticed this a year and a half ago when I was towing a trailer in 4x4 at a music festival

Last night I burned it out in my local 4x4 area at 4 in the morning last night. This is the kind of place you only go when no one is looking like when its raining or its 4 in the morning if you get my drift. I was lucky as hell to get out

Hence forth I want a clutch that will not suffer these issues. I also need it very soon so I can get my mechanic to put it in before christmas

A common quote is use it till it breaks & then upgrade ;)   I\'d go something that wasn\'t stock other words upgrade :) (couldn\'t tell you what to use though)

Make sure you get the flywheel turned before the new clutch goes in. Any warpage will cut the life of the clutch significantly.

I also have to do the clutch in my SX, was looking around and was interested in this one, I know it say RACING CLUTCH, but it has a good hold for heavy loads as well. Also its not a bad price.

Do be carefull about using any sort of racing clutch under normal/city driving conditions, my mother had one in her camaro (sp?) and it lasted all of 30,000 miles, if memory serves me right.

It may also be harder on the clutch cable.

This is where I got my clutch and they shipped very fast:

Post by: rokbebop on December 13, 2010, 07:28:57 PM
Hey, thanks for all the help. Personally I wouldnt buy a racing clutch because the Roza isnt a race car. I would guess that something for a racing application isnt designed to last a long time, but to perform exceptionally well for a short time.

What I am getting is probably similar to what palmer got.

exedy is a large australian maker of clutches and stuff, and they used to be called Diakin.

I got the Heavy Duty Clutch, which claims to be harder wearing which is what i want.

The part # is; DHK6873HD  http://www.exedy.com.au/HeavyDutyClutchKit.aspx

They dont do the Safari model for ferozas. I ended up getting this shipped to me for $250 AU. Knowing the model number helps with avoiding scammers

What was interesting about this experience was the variation in quotes i got for this part. they ranged from $300 - $500 for exactly the same thing. One company quoted me $310 and when i called up to order it they said that the first guy had made a mistake and it was actually $500 and they had to get it from victoria. Yeah thats where the factory is that everyone who quoted me including the last guy that i ended up buying from had to get it from as well.

Would you be able to send me your supplier, So I can order one for myself. I live in South- east melbourne.

Before I change my engine to diesel, I busted my clutch twice
in the trails and have to be towed home. It is because
the HD engine lacks power at low rpm so we have to increase
our rev while maintaining low speed. We can only do that by
riding our clutch. :)

Post by: rokbebop on December 14, 2010, 08:10:58 PM
Hi

The reason why i reckon i got mine at such a sick price is that I ended up getting really pissed at all these wankers trying to rip me off and i actually attempted sent through a sales order to the factory and tried to get the part under the buisnesses name. the guy at the exedy factory (which is in melbourne) called me up asking who the hell we are are and why a company that obviously has nothing to do with the automotive industry was ordering clutches. When i started ranting he seemed to think i was kind of amusing and referred me onto a company called ABS. They then called him and ordered it, called me back and said merry christmas.

So yes. ABS is in Melbourneand but from the Exedy http://www.exedy.com.au/HeavyDutyClutchKit.aspx factory thats in in Melbourne as well. Buy through them and if they try to charge much more than 250 ask them why. Quote the part # DHK6873HD
http://www.autobrakeservice.com.au/

Otherwise there is this mob
http://www.xtremeclutch.com.au/
they manufacure out of the badlands of Adelaide and are called ACS
(they could produce nothin before xmas, otherwise i would have been chasing them)

If this is happening a bit then i guggest replacing the clutch before it burns out completely cuz u might not be close to home when this happens. You also might not have to pay to get your flywheel machined
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: rokbebop on December 15, 2010, 12:29:56 AM
Look just updating this. turns out i got it for $250 cuz the supplier missquoted me and by the time he called ABS back i had already payed for it. The HD kit should cost around $350.

Look, it comes in heavy duty pink!

Hi Bill / Everyone,

Happy new year 2011.

It wasn\'t a great start to me. I got my clutch burnt when I was in the otways. around 200ks away from home.

I got the HD kit from a dealer too, thanks bill for your info on price and part number etc....
two reasons I call help here.

1...
I had difficulties changing gears sometime, when I read about the job,
http://www.ehow.com/way_5885705_do-turn-flywheel-replace-clutch_.html

this says I might need to change /replace the flywheel too...... Should I buy it ? any recommendation???


2... Spoke to few mechanics , some doesn\'t know what is feroza??? some thing this is a family sedan????
 some are asking about $1000- $1200 just to replace the unit. I\'m still looking around for a mechanic... many of them are sounds doggy....
 Dai auto people (daihatsu parts dealer in near melbourne)  are seams still on holiday.....

Does anyone know good feroza mechanic????
 
thanks
Will

You really shouldnt have to resurface the flywheel ( wouldnt hurt ),but not neccesary. You could always DIY, the manuals on this sight will lead you through it. The easiest way to do it in my opinion is to pull the motor, alot easier than trying to drop the trans and TC.
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: neen on January 20, 2011, 10:35:42 AM
Dropping the transmission is much easier than pulling the engine on our rides.  You will be able to change the clutch in about 5-6 hours.  I would recommend resurfacing the flywheel especially if you ran your clutch to the very end of it\'s life.  Chances are your flywheel is most likely scored and will substantially reduce the life of the new clutch.

Clutches are under $200...machining the flywheel is about $60.  For under $300 bones you can get it back on the road as long as you don\'t mind getting a bit dirty.
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: brushhippie on January 20, 2011, 10:56:06 AM
Just my opinion obviously theres more than one way, I thought pulling the motor was pretty easy, Good luck either way:)
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: wiesel42 on January 20, 2011, 06:12:39 PM
Me and my brother changed my clutch back in the summer....it took about two days, but we kinda messed around a bit and kinda did more beer drinking than clutch changing....LOL....I got my clutch from here:

http://www.samuraiparts.com/

They have Rocky parts too.....clutches, tune-ups, stuff like that....

Anyway, my clutch wasn\'t wore at all, but the springs in the middle were very week and the pressure plate was wore out.  Apartently my clutch cable failed partially and let the throwout bearing ride against the pressure plate.  

It was very strange how my clutch went......It only slipped in fourth gear.  First gear through third gear it was fine, but in fourth gear it would slip so bad it wouldn\'t take hold, and then in fifth it was fine.

I didn\'t resurface my fly wheel at all....i checked it and it was smooth and not discolored from heat at all.....I did use some fine sandpaper and just slightly rub it then cleaned it thoroughly with brake parts cleaner (leaves no residue).  Then back together she went.  Refilled the cases with Amsoil synethetic lubricant.  

After a 2000 miles or so all is well.
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: rokbebop on January 21, 2011, 12:55:34 AM
I do not know how the hell you backyarder types go , dropping the trans and replacing it without a hoist. I may be wrong, but i would guess that this is a massive pain in the arse and nearly impossible. Possible extremely frustrating as well. I read 14WP\'s account of replacing his own clutch and decided against it.

I payed $550 labour to get this job done, but my mechanic is the kind of guy that is good and honest and has plenty of work to do all the time, as apposed to the plethora of surrounding wankers, that try to rip me off because the honest guy takes all their customers. I got the flywheel done for this price too. hope that helps dude. Look for a place that is accredited by what ever the Victorian version of the RAA or NRMA is. Those guys have guidelines

The flywheel only needs to be turned if you completely wreck the clutch.

This new Exedy HD one that I got is Waaaaaaaaaayy better than the last one, which turned out to be the stock one it got in the factory. ol\' Bertha did 240 000 kms on one clutch. The new one doesnt burn under the same circumstances the last one did, which is why i spent the extra money. Im glad that i did
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: neen on January 21, 2011, 08:35:58 AM
There\'s really only two difficult parts when changing the clutch on our rides:
1) Getting all the bellhousing bolts loose
2) Making sure the (new) clutch is seated correctly and getting the input shaft aligned.

If you have a transmission jack the operation will be a piece of cake.  I had just a normal hydraulic floor jack and a helping set of hands.  The shift levers tend to get bound up when clearing the body so you have to drop the rear of the trans down pretty far, insert the input shaft then carefully raise the rear while applying pressure in a forward motion.

$500 for a clutch replacement is a great deal so if you can find that somewhere locally jump on it.  Most places run around a grand for a clutch replacement.
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: alaskan ogre on January 21, 2011, 12:39:47 PM
When I first got my Rocky I had to replace the clutch and I did it by dropping the trans. I wouldn\'t do it that way again after finding out how simple it is to just pop the motor out with the trans.

When I did put it back in I didn\'t have a trans jack, just a regular floor jack. I found that if you bolt the crossmember back onto the trans it will help give you perfect alignment to slide it into the clutch.
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: wiesel42 on January 21, 2011, 04:08:11 PM
Honestly, I didn\'t think it was all that bad.  We only had trouble lifting the tranny off the ground because of the dead weight.  I didn\'t have a tranny jack and my floor jack would support it.  I have two sets of ramps and i pulled the Rocky up on on all four ramps one under each wheel.  During the whole process the most difficult part was breaking the crossmember bolts loose.  We are talking about bolts that had been there from 1992 to 2010.  We did good though out of the 8 bolts only one snapped, and the only other bolt that snapped was a shifter boot bolt.  We we put it back together we drilled out the crossmember bolt that snapped and I used a grade 8 bolt nut and lock washer.  

I followed the book by the letter.  Pulled the shifter out of the tranny and pulled the transfer shift lever out as well.  

But with having three of these rigs i\'m sure I\'ll have to do it again.  I think I will definately invest in a tranny jack.

hi guys,

thanks for all your comments....

I,m on the same shoe as bill, although I would love to DIY all the car work I feel this job is difficult without proper tools.

finally I managed to find a guy who is doing Feroza, a proper mechanic.

I asked him to machine the flywheel (about $50- $60) this guy ask me $350. I hope that is reasonable.

I will see my roza on monday.

I\'ll keep you guys posted.

cheers
will
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: Bildo on January 22, 2011, 04:30:33 PM
William,

$350 for the flywheel? It had better come back gold plated?
Or is he asking $350 out, in + flywheel?

Think of it this way, most mechanics (here is Aus anyway) charge around $100/hr, if you know that with the right gear (air tools, hoist, jacks, alignment bung etc..) that it would only take you 4-5 hours and he is asking $400-$500, take it!

But if they want $300 for the whole job, sign him up for a racing contract, either he is super cheap (wishful thinking) ultra fast (liar) or mega dodgy (most likely). Chances are he will charge you that to adjust it.. Then when you come back a week later, that\'s when you start throwing hammers at him! :D

If you get a quote, always ask roughly how long it will take them (pretend your in a rush and need to pick it up ASAP) Compare the hours taken, to price quoted....

hi guys,

after replacing the new clutch kit, feel it is difficult to balance the clutch.
it is completely different to before, is it normal with HD clutch kit?
does mechanic needed to do any fine tuning???
heard that paddle needed to adjust after replacing the clutch kit??????

Also I get a clutch burning smell?? is it normal with new kit?? or do I have to take the car back to the workshop?

thanks everyone.......
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: alaskan ogre on January 28, 2011, 09:21:05 AM
When you say balance are you talking about the point where when you press on the pedal it disengages? That can be adjusted with the cable. Yes, those HD clutches will need more pressure applied to the pedal to disengage them. As far as smell was the flywheel turned to remove any hardened surface/warpage?
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: wiesel42 on January 28, 2011, 03:50:00 PM
The HD clutch is going to me harder to used because the springs are heavy duty.  When I replaced my clutch last summer I had to replace my clutch cable as well.  My old one had stretched enough to make it very difficult to adjust.  My clutch is way different than before.  It used to let out at the between the middle and the top of the pedal travel, and now it is very close to the floor...which is normal for a new clutch.
Title: Re:Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: rokbebop on January 30, 2011, 07:39:20 PM
My HD clutch felt a little differant at first but now it feels normal. It engages quite a bit earlier than the original one. I seem to remember it smelling a little too

If it was done by someone who knows what they are doing then it will probs be fine

Roughly how much shorter is the NEWer cable to the old one. When I put my clutch in it seemed to be allready at full adjustment. I just figured I had done something wrong. What did it cost?

Any tips on doing the gearbox mount? It\'s next on my to do list. Can it be done without removing the transmission, as in can you disconnect a few bits and bobs and jack the trans up enough to do the mount?

Cheers!
Title: Re: Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: lioncubb on May 12, 2011, 05:31:01 AM
Yes you can, all you have to do is remove the transmission support beam and then also unbolt the transmission mount, while holding the tranny up with a jack, very easy, quick and simple.

I\'m looking around for a clutch atm. Although the DHK-6873HD certainly looks the way to go I did happen to stumble accross this for a potential option, a hell expensive 1 all be it. Never heard of them before but then I ain\'t been around much. Anyone familiar with them?

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Paddle-Clutch-Kit-DAIHATSU-Sportrak-Feroza-Rocky-1-6-16v-F300-89-93-/170700917649?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item27be914b91

@ Tramgauge, how u doin\' buddy? You ever sort out your mount issues? I need some of them too but they\'\'re dam expensive in Aus even on EBay. I\'ve seen the engine mounts on US EBay for a fraction of the price but not too sure of the quality. Anyone seen anything notable lately, including a decent price on the exedy clutch, best I\'ve found so far are all around the 350 mark.

@rokbebop hey mate. So how\'s the clutch going after a few k\'s? Happy with it?

good to see you back roza31

as Exedy are one of the largest manufacturers of clutches in Australia and they manufacture nearby they are pretty cheap.

the pink heavy duty clutch mentioned before is still going strong but the \'outback extreme\' one in my widetrack is awesome. idk if its just the car but the gear changes are really smooth and fast. i reccomend

Title: Re: Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: rokbebop on September 24, 2012, 11:08:57 PM
the paddle clutch would likely wear out pretty fast. the less surface area the pressure plate has, the more any surface is going to comparatively wear. the pressure plate transfers all of the cars energy to the driveline so if a clutch like that was slipping driving up a hill, you wouldnt really need to be that surprised. this is just my opinion though. your driving a feroza not a charade
Title: Re: Clutch / Clutch Kits
Post by: lioncubb on September 26, 2012, 06:53:02 AM
I agree with rokbebop here also, remember it is a 4WD, if you do go off road the paddle clutch will not with stand the stop/start up-hill/down hill strain, I think it would burn out pretty quickly.

It is designed more for performance cars, rather than a 4WD.

Do you have a part number for the "Outback Extreme" clutch? I went to their website (https://www.xtremeoutback.com.au/en/catalogue) and they only have clutches listed for Rocky's w/ 2.8 litre Diesel engines. Do our Ferozas use the same clutch?

Did a bit more research and found it - it's the "KDA20001-1A", commonly just called the "Xtreme Heavy Duty Organic":

http://www.ozparts.eu/pdf/XtremeOutbackCatlogue_2016.pdf

It's shown orange within the catalogue, but I'm guessing the one I get will be purple as that is how it is shown elsewhere as just the Xtreme Heavy Duty Organic.

 I'm going to go with this over the Exedy HD based on rokbebop's recommendation and the fact that I found it on sale for $250AUD shipped ("list" is apparently $415.80, though it regularly sells on eBay for ~$290), which is about $120 less than the best price I could find the Exedy HD at. Excited to give it a go.
