    I have the motor out of my 69RR and at this time would like to replace clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing. I currently using a 12 inch McLeod set up and seem to be working well. I have a few miles on this clutch and seems to be fine , But feel that seeing that motor is out might as well put in new !! Any outer Clutch Brands Recommendations would be helpful.

    Thanks Tom C.

    That's allot of money to throw away, use it up.

    What does the disk and the plate look like? Any discoloration on pressure plate?, how much wear on disc?

    A new throw out bearing is highly suggested. Any time we pull one always replace it. What's up with the motor being out. Russ. :D

    The pressure Plate is a 3 finger McLeod and does have some discoloration , the clutch disk and plate have about 3000 miles and disk looks ok to me.

    I run a twin disc mccleod clutch and have had good luck with it. I tried single disc clutches and they just couldn't hold it and burned up way too fast.

    What size motor are you running. I got a 383. Now you guy's have me thinking about what I have for the clutch. But not going to make a race car out of it. Want a driver but can show the mussel if need to. LOL. Russ.

    It is all a function of power level and purpose. If running fairly stock horsepower level and driving, regular clutch should do you fairly well. As horsepower goes up you need more grab in the clutch. The problem is in order to get enough grip on the clutch the strength of the pressure plate goes up. This means it takes more work on your leg to work it. If you are 600 hp and a 3500 lb car a single disc clutch needs a lot of leg to work. Not comfortable as a regular driver. A twin disc clutch makes it much easier to use.
