Clutch and pressure plate
Posted 20 February 2011 - 05:44 PM
i dont know if the xt6 pressure plate is thicker or the spec of the ea82 pressure plate id like to put a thicker pressure plate in there
all my cables are adjusted right and my clutch lets out right at the end of the petal travel
i suspect the redrilled flywheel is too deep or the pressure plate isnt thick enough?
98 legacy with a ej22 and ea82 5spd d/r
id like to buy a new stronger pressure plate but i dont wanna keep buyin the wrong parts due to lack of knowledge

I should add that I dont know if there are any differences between the xt6 and ea82 d/r clutch release arms that could cause any issues.

did you allow anything for the adapter plate when you mounted the flywheel to the crank ? the adapter plate moves the entire trans and fork back from the flywheel , and it takes more of the arc to make up for that extra gap. and that reduces the actual lateral travel of the throwout bearing for the same cable travel, what i mean to say is the fork is at more of an angle when it's adjusted for the bigger gap and that will reduce the length of travel some for the given cable travel. you might be able to move the cable end mount position some and get the adjustment range better, it only needs a little to change the engagement from almost all the way up on the pedal , to correct at an 1" or 2 off the floor, maybe 2-3 turns of the adjuster nut. the real answer is in that gap difference from flywheel to trans is now more. a spacer between the crank and flywheel is what i mean, but it would need to be made so as to keep the flywheel centered too.
just my thoughts

The plate should put everything in the proper relationships.

this is a sjr flywheel
I went through a few clutch kits with my EJ swap. What I found worked best was a dealer XT6 kit. The EA82 stuff didn't work quite right with the SJR adapter. I know it may break the budget, but it worked for me.
