Clutch

South Bend is the only way to go! Their clutches are awesome. Peter is a great guy to work with. He really knows his stuff. Call him and tell him what you are wanting to do with the truck and he will get you set up with exactly what you need.
I just put a South Bend Dual Disc #3600 in mine and couldnt be happier!! :jump:

'05 White 6-spd Dually
'03 Blue 6-spd SRW 3500
And 3 '97 5-speeds

Ya what happened??????????? I have been looking at South Bend. I need to call and talk to Peter to see if he has what I'm looking to do. I want to be able to add a chip and maybe injectors and have the clutch hold up but on the other hand if I decide to have a CGVW of 20,000 lbs I want to be able to as well. I'll give him a call and see if he has any ideas.

South Bend Con OFE is the way to go for power, towing and everyday driveability. Unless your planning doing burnouts with that load and over 500 hp, then he'll have a clutch for that too.

Burnout with 20,000 lbs Hummmm....... Tempting but I'm afraid I'll bust the tail shafts u-joints and maybe if throw the drive line through the bed. Thanks for the info on the clutch. I'll ask him about the Con OFE.

I'm not sure yet about my truck! I know its not with the clutch! I'm hoping its not a blown ring but I wont know for sure till sometime next week (have to go back Miami where I have all me performance products installed). To answer youre question about chips and injectors- I have a superchips D-box, and 90hp injectors installed and the clutch does excellent! I think its rated to 450hp but like they say if you want more Peter can hook you up.

I have the mu13.25 con ofe. I paid 1381.00 delivered to my door with $300.00 of that price being the core for the flywheel (they resurface aned redrill to accomodate the larger pressure plate).

I had problems with the disk being warped or something and couldnt get it to disengage but I had my dealer call and Peter sent over a complete new system sight unseen. And then sent me $200.00 labor reinbursement. So if you have a problem they have proved to me that they will take care of you.

South Bend it is. I think I' going to stick with con OFE cluth 450HP and 1000 ft LBS. I don't think I'll ever go more then that. I just want my truck to be able to get out of its own way, and when I pull up along the side a honda or what ever I want to be albe to kick its a**.
