    New clutch ....

    This will mostly be a winter project, but parts are coming in, might as well make a thread.

    so Iím finally stepping up to a fully adjustable clutch. To be honest, vendors and options for this stuff have become more limited since Tim Hyatt passsd away. In the end, after looking at options and parts I ended up buying from Cale Aronson and his company Black Magic clutches. You might remember Cale as hanging in to the end with Ford Pro Stock. The parts are manufactured by ACE for the pressure plate, and with my 2.3 itís a custom build ....

    As part of this, I need to be able to log Engine RPM versus driveshaft RPM. Pictured are a magnet collar to go on my pinion yoke, and a bracket to mount to the 8.8 to hold the sensor. That bracket is a ridiculous price of billet aluminum .

    It's love / hate, you have to be committed to a clutch car that's for sure. In the end, its another level of frustration self imposed.
