Exclamation Clutch recomendations

The father inlaw has a 94 F250 HD 7.3 PSD. 5sp manual
He tows a 28.5ft 5th wheel. He is not sure what clutch the last shop put in but it is starting to slip even without being loaded and only has about 25k on this one.
What would be the best setup for his truck?

what all is done to his truck?? if it is close to stock i would still go a little heavier than stock and get the con O clutch and single mass conversion kit. You will probably get better mileage before it starts slipping IMO. southbend all the way!!!

My truck was bone stock when I bought the southbend clutch and single piece flywheel and it was to this day the best thing I could have done for this truck. I think it is rated for 350 HP and 700 ft. lbs. torque. but there are different levels obviously. Seemed like it changed my shift points and the truck just wanted to roll. I lug the hell out of the clutch now with the new mods and still could not be more happy with it

not to bring up an old thread, but i have a 94.5 PSD with ZF. Im doing a tranny in it soon, and i see all this about flywheel conversion to a solid setup? i thought that the older psd's had the good flywheel and the 97+ had the dual mass flywheel? My boss had a 97 PSD and his truck was at the dealer yearly for clutch issues.
