Clutch carrier cage

Recommended Posts

Dear All

I have researched the various threads relating to clutch issues and I fear I may know the answer already, but its worth a try.

My 1996 V8 is being rebuilt and we have discovered that the clutch carrier plate is cracked. The item in question is a cast metal ring with rectangular buttress's on one face.

No doubt my vehicle has been retro fitted with the twin plate installation.

1. has anyone else suffered from this item being cracked?

2. Has anyone who has replaced there clutch happen to have a spare clutch carrier cage left over? if so I am very interested to aquire.

Thanks, in advance

PNM and SJ both offer replacement clutch plates but I'm not sure about the clutch carrier.

But you could try Kevin at GTO racing:

In addition to his UN1 gearbox upgrades he also supplies clutches for the twin plate V8 - both the Lotus AP one and a paddle clutch (with a new clutch carrier).

May: DON'T hit it with a hammer!

Clarkson: Why?

May: Cause it's the tool of a pikey.
