Clutch Experiences...

Ok guys, while I'm putting in another engine this weekend I figure it's a good time to do the clutch. Any suggestions on where to get a decent clutch at a good price and what to watch out for? We're on a budget here so not too much.

I don't know much about clutches, but I was hoping you could take some shots of your work and post them on here for us?

Sure. I wanted to get some shots of the damage water can do to an engine anyhow. I'll take some pictures along the way so everyone can see the process we took.

Napa was actually the most expensive. I'm going with Auto Zone and just getting the clutch disc. My clutch was good before, but I'm afraid with the water and the oil the disc will be pretty nasty, so rather than take my chances or spending a whole crap load of money, I'm just replacing the disc.

while your in there spent the money on a new throw out bearing and a new pressure plate it sucks to have to tear it apart twice and the flywheel should be resurfaced most machine shops can do it if you use the old pressure plate and flywheel surface you could drastically shorten the life of your clutch disc

busy here for sure how did it go? napa in ohio is cost comparable to any parts store always shop around though napa usualy has lifetime warrenty anytime water is involded all fluids and or greased parts need help. throw out bearing should be replaced my opinion resurface only if warped flywheel otherwise just a waste of money as always the second time around its always easier good luck

What Motor and Tranny combo do you now have? I would say ebay for anything...just buy new obviously. And get a performace clutch. Little more $ and rougher on the street, but when you're dumping it in 2ft. of mud, you don't want one getting hot and burning out. Just my humble opinion

The engine went in with only some minor problems. We managed to work everything out and it runs beautifully smooth. Of course on the way home it busted the rear u-joint in the driveshaft and bent the output shaft from the transfercase. So now I have the SYE and a custom driveshaft going in it. Never ending battle with this thing.

The motor is out of a 2000-2004 Wrangler. Because of the difference in accessory brackets we had to drill and tap a lot of holes for bolts. It was a long and going process, but we managed it in about 3 days of on and off working.

Hey, you know what they say, "If it's not one thing... It's two!!!" Sounds like you are going to end up with a whole new (to you) Jeep!

Pretty much. I can't wait to get the SYE in and get rid of that transfercase lowering kit. After all this the only weak point in my Jeep should be the D35C and the transmission. Both of which will go eventually. "Just Empty Every Pocket" It's so true...Thank God for tax returns...
