Clutch Plate surface

joeld on Fri November 06, 2009 3:21 PM User is offlineView users profile

Year: 1994
Make: Buick
Model: Lesabre
Engine Size: 3800
Refrigerant Type: 134
Country of Origin: United States

What is the proper condition of the friction side of the clutch plate to hub/pulley? Mine has a somewhat thin layer of grease mostly on the hub. Also, should these be smooth with no "rough" ridges?

Vehicle has 62K miles on it, if that matters.

Thanks
Joel

Should be smooth, you may have a shaft seal leak, or engine oil dripping on it, but it should be dry...

Thanks for the reply.
In your opinion is it worth installing a re-man clutch from NAPA? Cost for this is about $100, then I'll have to buy the install tool kit for another $65 to $80.

If the front seal is leaking, you would also have to fix that.. I would e-mail the guys at Ackits.com for a price on a reman. They may even have offshore new for that, but I'm not sure... Fixing just the clutch without fixing the problem is a waste of money in my opinion... Hope this helps..
