JT's 1987 CSX #751 Clone Project

Step 6: Clutch Swap

The Clone was put together with a used Turbo I clutch, which worked ok until it got soaked with oil when the turbo oil supply line leaked on it. Conveniently at about the same time, I was aproached by our friends at MM Racing to use the Clone to test a prototype Turbo Dodge pressure plate from ACT. I ordered a Clutchnet 4-puck disk to go with it. Below are some pictures of the swap.
