What causes a clutch to destruct ?? Had a beefed up S-10 clutch that seemed to bake itself to the fly-wheel. The guys at the shop that built the thing suggested I use a ceramic clutch, but the $200 cost is worrisome. I use a hydralic throwout bearing that seemed to be in the right tolerances ( just able to turn by hand ). What do you think??

Did you use it on a flat flywheel? The vega flywheel has a recess in it and the s-10 clutch won't work on it.

I don't think they used a Vega flywheel. The clutch and flywheel came together from the same shop.

Sounds like you have a bad pressure plate,the most exotic clutch disk in the world won't even hold up with a bad pressure plate.

I'm replacing everything. Nothing is more frustrating than having a car that finally handles and gets thru the turns only to come to an abrupt halt when the yellow flag came out. I have been advised to get a Z-28 clutch assembly so I didn't get the ceramic deal. Cost is reasonable and we want to be ready by Friday. Thanks.
