Clutch and pressure plate
« on: May 04, 2012, 06:23:13 AM »
Hi guys more question. I am in the middle of putting new bearing in my transmission and t case and will be putting in new clutch and throw out and pilot bearings. The question is will I be asking for trouble down the road if I don't replace the pressure plate or do they hold up quite well. That tranny and t case is one heavy beast. Thanks

i assume you haven't ever run this halftrack to know the working condition of the clutch before you took it out.
if the pressure plate doesn't show any burn marks or heavy wear you should be ok. i would say 75% chance that it will be fine.

Thanks steve I only ran it briefly about a hundred feet and it worked but couldn't give it a work out. One ofthese days I'll be driving around in it
