|the solution to the clutch and pressure plate?I want to be able to buy replacement parts local if possible|
|Try calling up Woody at the Wedge Shop. Laugh at the name but al he does are TR8's and he builds seriously good Rover motors. A friend of mine had one of his 3.9's in his Morgan and would demolish Vettes and Porsches regularly. 508 880 5448|
|buick 215 with t-5 trans|
|Chevy S-10 pickup V8 STOCK, not high performance clutch & pressure plate with McLeod hydraulic throwout bearing, stock MGB clutch master cylinder.the S-10 used the T-5 tranny for many years.|
Clutch will be 10 or 10 1/4", 26 spline. You do not neet the larger Camero/Firebird 11" clutch.
You may have to have your flywheel drilled for the pressure plate, but this is about $15.00when you have the assembly balanced. You are going to have everything balanced, aren't you?
You can buy the clutch & pressure plate at NAPA, Chevrolet, Auto Zone, Summit, etc.
I suggest you get the airqip clutch line from D & D, as they have a setup made specifically for your conversion.
