Wind it up to 6500 rpm and sidestep the pedal. :D

 

Actually I've never worried about it.

Mike,

 

Once you get it "broken in":) can you report on how you like it? I am going to be putting a new clutch in my Q-code and I have been looking at the Centerforces. I like the sound of them, but I have to admit the price compared to a traditional clutch has me wondering if it is worth it. Would really appreciate hearing about your experiences with the setup.

 

Did you have to machine some material out of the flywheel for t to fit as mentioned in the old Mustang Monthly article?

Jim,

 

When we went to replace the clutch, we discovered a previous owner had also installed a Centerforce but only the disk. They could not fit the pressure plate so the old one was used with a new disk!!! When you go to restore an old car you never know what some idiot did to it in the past. Surprisingly, the "used" Centerforce disk was pretty much intact. To install the new pressure plate we needed to tap some pre-drilled holes which a previous mechanic did not want to bother with. I never knew the car had a "bad" clutch. So if half a Centerforce could fool me, it is worth thinking about. I contacted a local Mustang garage and they wanted $750 labor to install the clutch. The reason being, they never need replacing. Can't make any money like that. Yes, I am happy with the clutch. Took about 5 hours in the garage.
