pressure plate?
« on: March 01, 2007, 08:24:23 PM »
Does anyone know if pressure plates are still available or have they gone extinct like the release bearing? i tried searching many places including evw but could not find one. People have been telling me its the same as a standard which i know its not.

inzgary,
            Where are you located? In the USA why not torture daikin clutch for fun and profit? They are in Michigan.

Also check johnr's posts as he had his done just recently.

Crasher (Steve, in the UK) may also have a line on parts.

If you want to pay ANY price, Exedy Australia indicated they had stock of both pressure plate and disk. This was from an e-mail dated 24/11/2006.

Try them @ nsw@exedy.com.au . Part No is 3082-246-003.


Enjoy

Hiya Inz,

Pressure plates are not extinct (like the throwout bearing).  They are, however, very difficult to locate.  I had to go pretty far outside the usual parts loop to find mine a couple of years ago.  As Sean suggests, try Exedy.  You will pay a pretty penny for this plate when you find it, so shipping from Oz is not going to be that big of a deal.
You might try contacting eVW.  They carry a a pretty good assortment of AutoStick related parts.  I don't think they have a pressure plate, but they might have a lead for you.
Did you ever pull the clutch components out of the bellhousing to insure that you actually do need these parts?
