13x10? Are you sure? I was under the impression that they came in 12-3/16 x1.25x10 for stock replacement?

The only other thing that I can think of is your trans from a diesel? Lastly, you went with a new single mass flywheel, clutch and pressure plate according to your description. I went ahead and conducted a search for the PF Clutches and according to their catalog they only list clutches up to 94 on the f350s.

My thought is that maybe you are using a gasser trans which I would expect to have a smaller clutch, or you are using a diesel trans with the incorrect size clutch.

The 13" Valeo cover was designed for the ZF6 trucks. It will not fit into the ZF5 bellhousing unless the outside edge of the cover is machined down.

South Bend Clutch is full of good guys that KNOW their ****. I have gone to their shop more than once to get advice.

They also make clutches for a business.


Is the ZF5 you have for sale a 2wd or 4wd?

I wouldn't consider the trans to be the issue, unless you are running a bigger disk or pressure plate than what your trans was meant to accept stock. I've searched all available information for 94-97 f250-f350 clutch disc diameter and all the South Bend ones say 13", with 1.25 input shaft. So if your clutch is 1.0" input shaft diameter, and 13" that would be one of your issues.

Either your clutch maker is referencing something different size wise, or they have it listed wrong. A SD clutch has a 1.375 in input shaft hole.
