Attn: Guys who have installed a S.B. or Valair single mass flywheel.
Do either or both of these companies retain the stock driveplate on the back of the crank? Or do they eliminate it and use a spacer behind their SMF?
I have removed three Single mass/ dual disk kits from customers trucks at my job, and all three had a 3/4" spacer and long bolts going thru the flywheel then the spacer and directly into the crank.
Since I did not install these kits, I'm unsure which brands they were.
I'm not keen on putting a spacer in when it comes time to replace my clutch, I'd rather retain the stock driveplate / flexplate setup.
The last kit we installed was made by "Perfection" and it included a SMF flywheel that attached just like stock. It seemed nice, but time will tell how it lasts.
