Default Clutch

I have always used an Ace, Ram, or Zoom lightweight steel pressure plate with the Ram metallic six puck disc and never had any problems. They are cheap and work well.

Jeff, We have always used the RAM diaphram 3000 lb. rating pressure plate. Ram set it up for road racing by adding more locating tabs. The 6 puck metal disc with the poly springs. This offers a little cushion on the gear changes.
GM 15lb. flywheel from the Z-28, they come in 1 or 2 piece rear main versions.

ps, I think Quick Change offers a lightened pressure plate. Looks like someone went wacko with a hole saw on it.

I am currently using the lightweight Zoom pressure plate and six puck
metallic disc. Got them from speedway motors. I have also used
ram lightweight with ram 6 puck metallic. They weigh the same, are
as light as I could find and be legal (ferrous). The zoom was about
$100 bucks cheaper total than the RAM. I still have some RAM stuff
that I may send back for refurbish.
