Thank You for your service to our country.

Hi,
What are you talking about, I'm confused (nothing new there)
Do I think what is the problem? What is hard to pull off?
What do you mean when you say you put two clutches in?
you put one in, & then for some reason you had to take it out & put another one in?
Or are you talking about the Twin disc clutch from centerforce?

no had to replace the clutch and you have to ride the clutch to make it pull off with the z-28 flywheel

I am confused.

How does riding the clutch cause the flywheel to pull off the clutch???

I think he means when trying to take off from a stop the clutch isn't locking up to the flywheel.

If you have a m-21 0r m-22 transmission with a 2.20 fisrt gear , I would thing you would have to do a little slippen to get the car rollen with that 3.36 rear gear. It would be even worst if you have a tall rear tire

It is that lite flywheel that is causing the issue I belive..a light wheel requires a lot of clutch slippage to get the car moving which then eats clutch disks...

It's both the insufficient overall gear ratio in low gear and the light flywheel causing your problem. I had the same flywheel in a '69 Nova with 26" tires, 3.08's, & an M-20 (2.52 low gear), and it was a real pain to get moving.

Changing to a standard-weight (~30lb) flywheel will make a big difference, but it's hard to find them since GM quit making them a while back. There are some Chinese ones around, but I can't bring myself to trust one, and race stuff requires a special disc, since a stocker won't clear the flywheel bolts for some reason.

I'd also look into a wider-ratio gearset for the trans, if you're not married to the 2.20 low for some reason, or maybe some deeper rear end gears.
