Maybe they rebuild them?

When I pulled my transmission for a rear main seal replacement, I really didn’t want to put a worn clutch back in. Southbend was able to rebuilt the pressure plate, flywheel, and I just bought a new disc. Total was about $500 compared to a $1500 new price tag.
Yea Im sending an email to ACT to see if I can just get a disc. I did a disc only swap on my Supra and she was fine.

You could do like that racing guy did on YouTube and resurface it with a rock. Worked for him. Lol

I figure I would post my DBV2 FMIC install journey...
The before: I have a quick jack and 2x 225/40/18 tires are perfect for supporting the core.

When I spoke with them a few months ago they said you could buy just the disc. Actually I’m pretty sure Summit has them.

I did have FCP add it to their site (full kit) FYI if anyones buying a complete clutch and wants in on the lifetime warranty

I hate to admit, but I've finally come to terms with it. The thrill is gone. It's been gone for a while now.
So, the time has come and the partout has begun. My Fraulein is about to get served her divorce papers. :confused:

Started today with replacing the stock motor mounts and intake. Hopefully time for the stock RSB to go back in.
Tomorrow, it's the stock downpipe. Good thing it's the two hottest days of they year.

Thank you all for your advice and help over the years.



There will be lots of uninstalled (mostly never installed*) parts coming soon, to a sale thread near you.

Maybe the thrill wouldn't be gone if you installed those parts...
