This will be old hat to some, but if you've never assembled a clutch watch out for this.


After you put in the .120" spacer the disks go on top of it alternating big, little, big, little, big, little, etc. It's easy for oily disks to stick together so you end up with two bigs or two littles together. You can guess how I know this.

I wish I had a stack of those in my 14. I put some kind of "better than original" clutch discs in it years ago. I put the original discs back in my 21 and they shift nice and smooth. The "better" ones seem to grab and jerk. Too bad it's a pain to change them.

Yep, that's why my T's have the stock clutch which works every bit as good as the "improvement" clutches if not better.

I can't read what two down and four across is! :-) but I do remember having the oily disc's stick together.
