I have a 2008 single axel F-350 6.4 with a 6-speed manual in it and I am in the market for an aftermarket clutch. I live here in Mineral Wells, Texas, where Valair Clutch is headed out of and the clutches are manufactured so naturally they are one of my choices. The other choice is South Bend Clutch also, which I have heard nothing bad about except their prices.
I have a good price in a Valair dual disk, but my problem is this, I was told that an aftermarket clutch will not go back into the stock bell housing without some sort of modification or complete replacement with another. Any truth to this?
South Bend assured me that their clutch will go into the stock housing with no problem, but their price for a dual disk is about 1,800+. Whereas with Valair I'm look at about 1,500.
Any input will be greatly appreciated and if any other 6.4 drivers have had a manual with an aftermarket clutch with input on the matter with also be worth their words in gold for me. Thank you very much.
