Default T5 clutch options (not clutchnet)

So, clutchnet has had my money for a month, and won't return emails or answer phone calls. I've got to start looking for other options as the clutch is the only thing stopping me from putting my car back together.

B230ft, 740 dog dish flywheel, and luk pressure plate. What other options are out there? Anyone had any experience with spec? I hadn't used clutchnet in a while, but i'm disappointed in how far their service has gone downhill.

Look for a local clutch shop to make you something.

Or hit up Southbend. Guys there are awesome to deal with, they answer the phone and emails, they ship stuff out when it's ready. Not many shops I've been pleased with, they are one that will see my return business.

FWIW $390 delivered for a beefed up plate (different spring, sachs housing), Kevlar disc, t/o, pilot, and alignment tool, rated for 275ft.lbs.

How does that yoshifab disc hold 400hp? Upgraded pressure plate?

I had the exact same problem with clutchnet. Every time I called them it would be shipping out that week, but it probably didn't ship for a few more months.... It was pricey too and my clutch still slips sometimes in 3rd gear.

Did you check and make sure you don't have to shim the pressure plate?

I've never had a problem with Clutchnet. 10-ish clutches now, never a complaint.

There isn't a problem with the clutch fully engaging via the clutch pedal, I can back off the cable adjustment until it can't even be depressed if I wanted to. Is there more going on here than I'm thinking?

Dog DIsh flywheel = 9"

The yoshifab disc (I run one), is for an 8.5" flat flywheel....

These will not play nicely together.


And my gut says the 8.5" disc is an off the shelf ford part.... (SVO?)

My clutch shipped, needed a signature and I was at work. Oi. Apparently the hold up was that I ordered a kevlar lined clutch, and they didn't have the kevlar in stock. I'm ok with that explanation, but a little communication goes a long way.

Edit:// I should add that once I got someone on the phone, they were very helpful and made sure I was taken care of.
