XT6 clutch PP into EA81?
Posted 18 November 2003 - 11:42 PM
1. The XT6 pressure plate is too thick, and doesn't fit - ie: no play left in the fork, or even worse - engine can't bolt to tranny.
2. Can't rig-up or fab in the release bearing, and it's little holder gizmo.
So I came up with this list of parts:
EA82 flywheel (needed for the PP to mount up)
EA81 clutch disc - 4WD (same diameter as an EA82, but has proper spline count for the 4 speed D/R
EA82 PP (XT6, Turbo, etc...)
EA82 release bearing
Possibly have to use an EA82 fork too.
Ok - so the only tough part I can think of is the fabbing in of the release bearing and the EA82 fork if needed. I'm thinking I may need to have a machine shop do something with it.
Anyone done this? I'm asking to see if anyone has tried this, and what they may have ran into, and if anyone knows if the thickness of the EA82 PP is such that it just wouldn't go together...
I want a stiffer PP, but centerforce wants nearly $500 for a clutch kit for the EA81. On top of that, I'm not sure I'll keep the 4 speed forever. Some day I may go to a 5 speed. The money output to get a centerforce is not worth it for what I want to do. And at least I'm fairly certain that dirt and debri won't clog up an XT6 pressure plate - which I don't know about the centerforce stuff. too money for just an experiment. And if the XT6 PP can be put in, it should give improved performance.

Actually - I want a heavy flywheel, cause this is going in the lifted wagon. Need the torque at low RPM's.

I would try the new(used) one we just put in for a while and test things out with it. It will work fine as that is the same set up most of the guys run.

Still getting a squeal from somewhere - I think one of the clutch bearings. I want to pull the engine anyway so I can clean in there, and remove more stuff. Got a bunch of new gaskets for the engine too - oil pan, valve covers, exhaust, etc.
