ORDER ONE FOR A 68 VETTE SMALL BLOCK AND BE CAREFUL ON THE SPLINES GO TO ADVANCEAUTOPARTS.COM AND LOOK IT UP AND U WILL SEE WHAT U NEED OR SUMMIT USES SAME PART NUMBERS ALSO U WILL NEED A STARTER TO MATCH THAT FLYWHEEL BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE OFFSET CLOSER TO THE FLYWHEEL A 11 IN SETUP WONT WORK

basically all chevy 10.5 clutches are the same, so long as it is a 10 spline center not the 26 spline, but think all of the 26 splines were 11 inchers.

If you have to runa stock type disk buy a good one, like a LUK brand if you can find one (Car Quest in our area). If you run their clutch kit (disk, pressure plate and bearing) be aware the bearing is a composite housing while the one they sell separate is metal cased. Either works fine but just an FYI.

If you can run other more creative ones, I had good luck with a 4 paddle bronze HAYS in the street stock days, just don't try to slip it. I loaded the car with it but it was either hooked up or not, no in between.

Remember if you run a bronze that the flywheel will look hot/smoked after you run it, wash it off and put it back together unless the paddles are shot.

if you have 1 1/8 10 spline (most common)look up clutch for late 70s camaro 4spd or 82 camaro 305 should be just what doctor ordered. sachs # is k1675-10 if my parts store memory serves me right.any ? just ask
