You guys are going to hate me!!
I just picked up a Brand New  EXEDY Clutch Plate, Pressure Plate and release Bearing To fit Daihatsu Sportrak 1.6, Pre Aug 93 model, and only paid $25.00 Great British Pounds (that\'s $40 US Dollars or $40.47 AU Dollars) plus $12.00 GBP shipping ($19.20 USD or $19.42AUD)

So all up in USD is $59.20 or AUD is $59.89.

Was this an auction?  Someone had bought one but never installed it?  That is an unbelievable price!

WilliamJ, If your Gearbox mount is stuffed chances are your engine mounts could be flogged out too- have them all changed at the same time.

That\'s not to bad considering a new rocker cover will set you back $750!!
Yeap that\'s right $750 had 1 priced today.

I also agree with roxy, change the engine mounts as well, I pulled my tranny today and the mount was broken, but I didn\'t need to see it, already knew by the way the gear stick was shakin around.

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.......

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?

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.

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

dont vex

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?
