Hi there.

My clutch has been slipping on occasions for the last year or so and now I think its finally on deaths door.

The question I have is this;

Will I get away with buying just the clutch kit or will I need to buy the kit, thrust bearing, master cylinder and flywheel or the whole lot?

Your advice would be much appreciated.

Reid.

I have just upgraded my clutch flywheel and slave cylinding to the rs kit, gota say its not a bad price mate, the worry i would have is that if you only do the clutch and pay for the 5 and half hours labour to fit it, and after a couple weeks/months it still slips then your back to where you st arted and youve got pay for the labour again,in my honest view i would get it all done mate. just solves the problem in one hit. hope that helps adam

p.s got mine done at pumaspeed got a good deal on it recommend give them a call ask for tony or cj, both no there stuff.

You can get away with just changing the clutch and the slave cylinder only, the flywheel won't have to be touched unless it is worn past the recommended level, but you won't know that until you actually get the gearbox off.

i would say give tony a call first, as i got a good deal but put it this way it wasnt that much over the 800 that pumabuild are charging. he will always do you a got deal for cash, and the rs clutch is AMAZING mate worth every penny should have been a standard st part.. hope that helps mate adam

Does the kit include a ne clutch slave cylinder as you will need one of them as well, I can't remember what grade oil I used in the gearbox but I do know it wasn't the Ford stuff as they wanted £14.99 for a litre. You will need about 1 1/2 litres of oil and it is a good idea to put the oil in before putting the subframe back on as it is easier this way.

Not looked at it yet and not sure if it covers procedures? It may take more than a day the first time especially for both jobs although back springs are easy. Not saying you couldnt as it depends how it goes and what facilitys youve got etc..

I have done Mk3/4/6 Escorts plus a RWD Capri but not sure the easiest/quickest way to do an
as never been there. I think some garages on here may give some hints?

ie. Engine and box out in one to do, or drop the side of the engine by taking off one mount and remove the gearbox/bell housing off the side of the engine.

Take some before and afters of your H&Rs too as I wish my Eibachs would drop a bit on the back!
