Clutch Info.

Okay, the clutch in my car is slipping, time for a new one...Here's my specs:

1977 Chevy Camaro
305 v8
Super T10 4 spd trans(out of a 1976 model)
car converted from auto before we bought it, so it has real high gears (2.73)

I was hoping I could find out the size of my flywheel and the number of splines on the input shaft. Thanks for any help. Oh and if anyone can comment, how good are these clutches: Ram, Zoom, Hays, and Centerline. I plan to go with either Ram or Hays cause they are a little easier on the wallet...Thanks again...

Centerforce gold all the way. Keeps the pedal feeling real light with no leg cramping and will last a lifetime. More expensive initially, but will outlast all the others. HG

We've been using Centerforce Dual Friction with excellent results.
Somebody out there may know how many splines on a super T-10. Or, you will find out, along with the clutch size, when you tear it down. You'll have to have the flywheel resurfaced anyway so you'll have the time to order the disc and clutch plate.

yeh, I was hoping to get this done over the course of at most 2 weekends as i will have to travel home from college to do it. I thought Centerforce's were fairly more expensive than the others, thats why i hadn't thought much about them, but I'll look into it. Anyone know what flywheel resurfacing usually goes for? Thanks a lot for the help, and if anyoen does know size and spline count, please feel free to speak up...

edit: hey guys, I checked Jeg's for Centerforce clutches. I like the way the Dual Friction sounds due to the increased holding and my tall gears. But I cannot find one for my specific setup with the 305 and super t10. here's a link to the page http://www.jegs.com/cgi-bin/ncommerc...50&prmenbr=361

Lemme know if you see something I could use, thanks again...

That trans should and I only mean should be a 26 spline input. You should be able to drop the inspection pan and figure out the flywheel size. Hope this helps.

I don't think it has it printed anywhere on the flywheel. I just had a look at an old engine in the shop and you should be able to measure the flywheel from the engine side but the clutch is almost inpossible to see. By your numbers the trans is a warner so from the info I have it is probably a 11" clutch. In those years if it was a sag 4 speed or a 3 speed it would probably be a 10 spline input and a 10.4 clutch. With the centerforce dual friction they only sell them matched so you can't just change the friction plate if you choose wrong.

okay, what yer saying goes along with what my friend's tranny guy told me. he said that if it is a Super t10, it should have an 11" plate and a 1 1/8" x 26 spline input shaft. So I guess I'll just go with this and if my dad has time at home, he can check it out sometime for me. I doubt I can afford a dual friction clutch because this particualr model is like 375$ at Jeg's so maybe I'll look at one of Centerforce's lesser clutches...Thanks for all the help folks.

edit: Summit lists that clutch at 275.99 so that aint too bad...

CENTERFORCE (MIDWAY INDUSTRIES) is located in Prescott, AZ.
You cannot buy direct from them, but they have an excellent tech support department http://www.centerforce.com/
I suggest you contact them with any questions you have about their products. The CENTERFORCE Dual Friction is what I've used in two of my three tri five cars with GM crate HO motors. They are light in the pedal with brute holding power. The level I will hold 30% better than stock, level II will hold 60% better than stock and the Dual Friction is 90% better than stock. They also sell flywheels and throw out bearings, the latter of which should be replaced with a clutch job.
If you really want to trick out your clutch system, look at SPEED DIRECT http://www.speeddirect.com/ for heim joint clutch linkage. Your leg will thank you for the upgrades.

thanks for all the nfo man, yet I was just confused again by Summit who told me that I should have a 10.5 inch, 10 spline shaft so i dunno what to think, that was even after i told them it was a t10. so i guess well have to drop everything and see before we order...
