Hey, I need a second opinion regarding re-using a clutch or buying a new one..
here's the situation
the car i bought was for sale 1 year before i bought it, it sat for a couple months with a blown tranny, it didnt sell, so the guy put a tranny in it. (it was a junker tranny i can tell) bu thte clutch components looks like they were all new.
After about 6 months of driving (im guessing) the motor blew, it sat in the guys driveway again for a few months befor ei bougth it.
so anyways i took it all apart today, and the clutch looks brand new still, flywheel has no pits or grooving, pressure plate is the same, and the clutch looks good.
judging by the pics atatched, who would risk putting this back in the car
Also, the plans for this car are to be a winter beater that i dont care if it lasts longer than this winter
plus Sarah will be re-learning standard on it (refining her skills) so putting a new cluch in with the possibilty of ruining it, seems like a bad idea right now.
next year im willing to change the motor out, and at that time put a new clutch in if that plan goes through.
anywyas the pics, what do you think
rememebr just has to pass the winter
P.S. for Viperssaturn : this is double the thickness of the clutch we removed from your car, was that clutch bad when we removed it? (the 02 SC2)
The last pic os a nice shot of the hole int he engine... Hole = Get car for $70
