So took it for a quick ride and it looks like I will be pulling the engine to put in a 1700lb PRESSURE PLATE and clutch. I thought I would cut corners and save some change by using a old PRESSURE PLATE and clutch. The bad thing is that I knew better. My quad gauge will be here Wednesday so I will be installing that Smile
