I just replaced mine with a heavy duty Valeo one from eBay (http://stores.ebay.com.au/Sunbury-Brake ... ore-Clutch). Cost me $235

Some people might recommend some fancy organic type s**t or something...I really don't see the point on using anything other than "standard" on a family car...unless you have some decent engine mods.

I have a PBR RPM Clutch in my EA. It has never had the firewall crack, or the pedal box destroyed. I have simply rerouted the cable to make it smoother.

If the clutch isn't adjusted properly, the firewall or pedal box can be damaged.

WELL... i replaced my clutch 3 weeks ago(standard valeo- I told him I give it to it occasionly, he said it would be fine)-along with input shaft, week later slipped, took back had new pedal box put in and firewall welded , 2 weeks later slipped!!! Took back in, the mechanic put new clutch(same as above) now slipping again!!!!!! $1,350 all up dammit!!!

He now tells me( "eb's dont go like this, it pumps put more torque then normal you need a HD unit") (prolly coz no cat extrac's, 2.5 all way through, and a good ol 5 speed)

I took him for a drive and the clutch slips at around 2,500rpm-3,000rpm-but get this, if you put your foot under the clutch pedal and lift it up it stops slipping!!(yes I put new cable in---TWICE )
i THINK HE EXPECTS ME TO PAY FOR A H/DSPRING/PLATE UNIT)

H E L P ! !

he also tells me that he would expect his EL2 XR8 UTE(5SPEED) To slip if he took it to 5, 000rpm- thats not normal!!! right??
I beleive my inline 6 should be able to be taken to redline occasionly, i mean lets face it , it would be f**k if I done it all the time to a relativly standard motor!!
But I think a standard duty should do me but obviously not any n :cry: sugesstions?

typical for the firewall.

Lifting the pedal shouldn't have any affect on the clutch at all.. theres not enough force applied to the fork to do it any favors.

I don't get any slip in my stock standard PBR replacement XR 'spec' clutch.

Perhaps the yolk the thrust bearing slides on is worn preventing it from returning to a load-less stationary position.

The bloody thing stops slipping when I lift the pedal up with my foot!!! eg: put under the clutch pedal when slips and lift up 1-1.5 inches!!!

I dont know how, or why this happens it just does

2x new clutches
1x new pedal box
1Xnew input shaft (nose cone??)
firewall welded
2X new clutch cables

i am getting really, really REALLY frustrated with my trusty wagon!!!!!

mechanic cannot work out prob! :idea:

your clutch probly isnt adjusted properly and the clutch is partially disengaged when your normally driving. and when u pull the pedal up it allows the clutch to properly engage

btw you should be taking the clutch really easy for the first 1000kms
