what clutch assembly

I have a 67 c10 short stepside. I am dropping in a 440 hp 383 stroker and bolting it to a muncie 4 speed. What clutch assembly would be best for this set up. The engine is a 97 block, I believe. The tranny is old of course. Is there a limit of what clutch size I use, etc. Any part #'s would be appreciated.

I prefer the Borg & Beck style clutch over a diaphragm clutch. I have had diaphragm clutches stay on the floor when power shifting.

yep, pedal stay on the floor is a weird thing to happen

I used a large bolt through the floor as a stop for the clutch pedal on my 68 Chevelle SS396 car. that was in 1971

what clutch assembly

There are many factors. GM or aftermarket flywheel? I have been working on m y project for over a year and
I have read that it is not a good idea to use aftermarket clutch on a stock flywheel cause it will not match up right.
Go with a complete matching set. Clutch and pressure plate with the flywheel. Here is the email to the tech at centerforce
rogerw@centerforce.com he can certainly help you with this project.

I guess what I'm asking is can I use a regular 10 spline, 11" clutch kit with a 97 model block and an old Muncie transmission?

Yes, as long as the flywheel has the correct pressure plate bolt pattern for the 11-12" clutch and not the smaller 10.5" clutch pattern.
