Default Re: Clutch Pucks upgraded anyone?

You did the right thing by fitting them the way you discribed, if they move freely they will hook up on the flywheel and the pressure plate much better, and when it comes to resizing those stock pucks, a bench grinder and a good eye for not taking off to much will get them resized very quick.

I did spend some time wearing out some razor blades cutting them down so that they fit loosely; after all that work I could have just mad my own from some Mcmaster clutch material like another member suggested.
