Well I asked them what operating temperature the clutch is supposed to engage at and they didn't know... lol shows how smart they are when temperature is a critical factor for correct operation. I asked them before what the difference was between a standard and heavy duty clutch and they told me while it's engaged, it's at 70% of the engine's speed while the heavy duty one is at 90%. Sounded a bit odd to me but it is summit technical service after all. What would the difference be if this isn't correct information? Yes I do have the thermostatic operated one since there is a wound coil spring on the front of the clutch. I don't want the non-thermostatic operated ones for your specific reason of it still engaging and making alot of racket at a normal cruise speed where you wouldn't need it's cooling abilities.
