You want it done by a pro, yet you have gone to see KMart... Regardless if they are close enough to walk to school...

And now your here asking us "dumb asses" questions about the job, getting the best answers you possibly could with offers of free help from those who have done more than we could all count. Hell, I've done 6 so far and I could told ya all the information you needed after the first one I ever did.

Just go get a PBR XR6 clutch and get it fitted, and you'll be set. Its the only one that a few members on here are yet to fry, considering the extent they thrash the s**t out of their poor clutch. They are cheap (comparitively) and the best bet in your situation.

Jeezzz... Even I'd do it for you if you were willing to pay me... :D

How much is this PBR thing?

Also I was told there was no difference between a standard clutch and an XR6 one. True?

I am not 100% sure what the difference is. I know the XR6 one is a little dearer than the standard clutch ($20 or $30). I was suggested to use it in the manual conversions I do because of the price difference was small, and I do know of one member here putting 150rwkw through it and he still hasnt fried it 9 months on, whereas he was going through clutches every 3 or 4 months before that.

The Ford glovebox manual lists the XR6 clutch as a Heavy Duty Single Plate, whereas the standard I6 just gets a Single Plate.... Same diametre though.

So there must be a differece, and a worthwhile one.

The XR6's have more clamp load there are a good clutch for up to about 170rwkw. I have a brand new Dakin one for sale if your interested.
