I have been clutch shopping and I am looking at the single disc valairs. I noticed these kits don't come with a flywheel. Is it because a flywheel replacement is not needed? In my experience with my Fords when its time for a clutch its also time for a flywheel. I would hate to put a clutch in and have the flywheel fall apart.

I bought the 450 clutch and had to bore out the center of my flywheel. once the break in period is over, the clutch and flywheel work great!

i bought the 600hp, just had my flywheel machined/resurfaced. just give it a few hundred miles and you will be good to hammer down.

So you can have the stock flywheel re machined? I know on the Fords you can't. If thats the case thats not bad then. One other question, when does ya'lls clutch start to engage? Is it right off the floor or do you have to let it out a ways? Mine right now doesn't start to grab until it is almost all the way out which is another reason I think its about shot.

engaging at the top is a sign of a worn clutch, you truck will need no modifications to run our clutch, just resurfaced.

yea had the flywheel resurfaced and all was good. mine lets out just shy of half off. one more thing, you will have to learn how to shift all over again...but it doesnt take long to get used to.
