The difference in RX and XT6 clutches.
Posted 26 January 2004 - 08:14 PM
The RX is 0.827 and the XT6 is 0.815.
He states that the difference of .012 will not let the XT6 pressure plate clamp fully onto the clutch disc and there MAY be slippage in the RPM range.
I have read that some people have used this cluch kit with the EA82 flywheel without problems.
I had ScotTM measure the flywheel I had lightened and resurfaced with a micrometer and he can't seem to get a consistent reading. (I'm 40 min. away) From 0.815 to 0.825.
Any thoughts from anyone?
I could take the flywheel back and have the pressure plate mounting surface milled but .... Hmmm Looking for a bit of input.

I've seen it in action - doesn't look like there's any problem to me.

I will be using the EA82 flywheel turned to XT6 specs. Only reason is this flywheel has been lightened. This one will also go inside a 5sp D/R behind an EA81HO. This is for the '85 Brat

Anyone using the EA82 flywheel with the XT6 pp and clutch?
Thanks for the input.

When the PP contacts the clutch disc, is it fully extended?
Or does it have additional travel as the disk wears?
When the flywheel is turned, do they turn the PP mounting surface too?

I learned of these measurements from clutchmasters, I would really like another source to verify it though.
