so my clutch slip today

going uphill around 16 hundred rpm, around 40 something, gave gas, rpm went up, let off, rpm drop off...
clutch slips now...

so, what clutch should i get? the luk one seems to be the choice around here, but i dont like the idea of having to remove springs and put springs on just so i have a feel of a pedal... which clutch kit offers a close to stock feel?

need flywheel too...

or should i just let ford do it?

I know the Luk comes with a flywheel, Pretty sure the Southbend does too. Luk is a good clutch at a good price.

South Bend has a reputation of being one of the best clutch builders out there so you pay more for the name.

Either way you will be happy.

Southbend sells ya everything. you get clutch, flywheel, pressure plate, throw out bearing, crank bolts and pressure plate bolts, pilot bearing .. and they have the updated fork too if you have the bad one.. it is definatly not cheap but I'm confident I wont have to replace it again.. and since it takes so little effort to push the clutch in the hydraulics/slave should be a little happier

use a screw driver to pop off the spring on the pedal its a 2 second job.. then it will feel pretty much like a stock pedal.. I installed mine it took 4 hrs start to finish... I dont know where to send ya to have it installed.. Some of our vendors sell them here.. I just went right to southbend and ordered mine over the phone .. I delt with Peter
