Now about the parts, I looked on Napa's website and I can get a remanufactured clutch set for $154 http://www.napaonline.com/MasterPage...ch+Set+-+Remfd
I could also get a new clutch kit for about $174.
Would this work for my '78 CJ5 with straight 6 258 mated with a 4 speed tranny? Is there that much of a benefit of upgrading to the hi performance clutches that are available? They cost almost 2x as much...
Also, what does "Borg & Beck Type Clutch" mean? They also have raised diaphragm and optional diaphragm cover models... what do I need?
I put a "stage II offroad (quick engagement) clutch" made by "sachs" in my YJ..... It blows, the Throw-out bearing is already shot after 2,500 miles.....
I bought a stock replacement clutch from autozone for $200, made by "duralast".... It has a liftime warranty on it, so if you burn it out, you get a free one (atleast thats what i was told
Stick with "stock" clutch kits, no need to go performance
