Clutch / Clutch Kits
« 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:

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.

Hey bill,

I have the similar experience, when doing 4x4 in hard conditions I get the smoke as well , burn smell.
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. :)

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

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!
