Wedge List / clutch pedal feel
« Last post by tencate on July 22, 2018, 08:49:14 AM »
On the whole clutch discussion, I might add that Wayne has a nice article in a

past TWOA newsletter about testing out various clutches, a good read! Check it

out.

Wedge List / Re: V8 Clutch Part Numbers?
« Last post by Wayne@Last-Chance-Garage.com on July 21, 2018, 09:17:03 PM »
I haven't done a force vs displacement curve for any V8 club from LUK,

but the one I tested for TR4/6/7 applications required significantly more

force to move, and significantly more movement to get it to release.

This resulted in a much heavier pedal, a clutch that engaged right at the

floor, and one that was either all on or all off.b If that's desirable

for competition, have at it, but for me it makes for a car I don't want

to drive. I wouldn't want to spend all that money and all that effort to

get a clutch that feels like that.

Is the LUK more of what we used to call a  "competition clutch"?

Avoid the LUKb, it requires way more pressure to move and lots more travel

to release. You won't like it.B

Wedge List / V8 Clutch Part Numbers?
« Last post by Triplesn8s on July 21, 2018, 10:01:16 AM »
Anyone have Borg & Beck, LUK or other part numbers for The pressure plate,

disk and throw out bearing? Or the entire kit number?



I know I have one here somewhere, but after a couple hours of searching I

can't find one. With the individual part numbers I may be able to salvage the

weekend with some lucky local stock.

Wedge List / Re: hmmm, was : whose wedge

Ibve often wondered why someone hasnbt compile a list of the worst

automotive authors,  by applying the same level of rigor and research.   You

know the ones, who were either not of driving age when the car was sold new or

who has never owned one.  The ones who specialize in writing unbalanced

reviews without the benefit of a first hand test drive, or who apply modern

sensibilities to a 30 year old car, or worse yet simply regurgitate inaccurate

garbage previously written by their forbearersb&..

I didnbt see the article but Ibm assuming itbs another refresh over the

ancient article 10 worst cars ever made. Herebs the problem with these type

of articles they are generally written by 25-year-olds who are way too young

to have ever actually known the cars when they were new. They are only

rehashing someone elsebs story . Their pieces have no value.
