They work very well, when they are right. Make certain you use the correct hyd throw out bearing for the application.

I've used one 2 seasons and it works great. I use it with a Quartermaster hydraulic throw out bearing and a special Tilton flywheel. The Tilton flywheel is the simplest set up, but its a little spendy. I found a used one on the net for about $100. It was from one of those outfits that sells used NASCAR parts. I believe it Musclemotorsports.com.

CAN YOU MOUNT ONE OF THOSE ON A STOCK FLYWHEEL AND USE A MECHANICAL THROW OUT BEARING. RULES YOU KNOW.

I don't know about the mechanical throw out, I never used one. I'm pretty sure that you can not use a stock flywheel. Even if you could, using a big, heavy stock fly wheel would negate the benefits of the triple disc.

Speedway sells adaptors that make a triple disc work with a stock automatic fly wheel, though.

I think the tilton is one of the better clutches........Had good luck with them...

The stock flexplate will work........but you would do well to invest in an aftermarket racing flexplate.....they are "stock appearing".....

You can use a mechanical throwout....You just need to make sure it is set up right......No pre-load and a stop to guard against over travel........

Good Luck
