Exclamation Clutch! What will work!

I have a 99 6speed that i bought from a guy who said he just put a brand new LUK in not too long ago. I had it for a day and noticed it was Slipping very badly and a month later it is shot. I have been told i have a Dual Clutch System but also have heard they dont make them for my year. If it has a Luk or even the Dual System i should be able to throw in any clutch kit i want right?
any help is appreciated

im not aware of any 6 Speeds with Dual systems.. it should be a single solid 13" Flywheel...

if your looking for just a replacement clutch this is a good one: NMU70241

let me know if you have any questions

South Bend makes a dual disc clutch but I don't believe ford has ever sold dual disc clutches. If the clutch is already slipping within a couple of months of being replaced It's eather been badly abused (played with) of you could have a weak pressure plate if they didnt replace that with the clutch.

im guessing that one i got a link on from stealth-automotive.com they have one there for 315.00 which is a perfect price right now. i am not pushing that much horsepower i have a superchip and intake. Im guessing the guy before was an idiot and didnt know how to drive a stick.

I think alot of clutch problems is poor driving, my dad went 300K on the stock clutch, with 80hp chip, 4in exhaust, and intake, i have the truck now southbend clutch was installed a 300K and now has 438K and the only problem I have is on my 140hp tune I get a rattle/vibration on hard acceleration, i dont know if its the clutch though.

wow thats impressive to get 300K miles on a stock clutch. what's your dad's secret to driving? What kind of driving did the vehicle see during that 300K. I can see a highway vehicle doing that good but I'll be more impressed if that was a work vehicle on dirt roads and mud.
