i got a south bend double disk. i like it but its noisy with the cluch pushed in and harder to get in gear but single disks suck if you have any power

Every dual disk I've towed with is garbage ford or dodge they are on or off the grab hard and can make for rough starts mainly startin on grades but great for gettin hooked to a sled

im still deciding on which one. i think im going to retire the truck from the road after this winter so it wont be drivin on the road much but would this clutch be able to be driven on the road on ocasion? the part number is SBC FDDC36005 Comp Dual Disc Clutch=Kit.850hp / 1400tq SFI Approved Competition Clutch. 3600lb Pressure Plate. and does the pressure plate pressure mean how hard the clutch will be to push down? thanks

higher plate lbs will mean its harder to push. Our ford hydraulics are pretty good, and a 3600 isnt too bad.
