Torque is a factor along with many other considerations. Williams put a formula one engine in a Transit and try as they did AP racing could not get a clutch to do more than 5 or so starts . It was quite funny , on the one hand to stand and admire all this fantastic engineering and then seeing men pu...

If the clutch has nothing to do with the weight of the vehicle why do heavier vehicles have bigger clutches ,you would not expect to see an 8 inch clutch in a Volvo truck . AP racing clutches are normally paddle clutches and are designed to be heavier . You would not fit a paddle clutch in a road go...

I have now established that my car has a factory finish . I spoke to an ex employee who said that this was done to help sell the car .

Exactly, all the components in the system are in harmony . Add an odd one to the system and you have chaos. :oops: Or to put it another way, the system cannot work as well as one designed by the OE engineers.

No valves in the clutch cylinders and weight of vehicle is irrelevant. I would certainly prefer a slightly lighter clutch, so will investigate options when I change the engine later in the year.[/quote] Any oriface the fluid passes through internally in the cylinder is called a valve in Lockheed spe...

I don’t agree ! If Lockheed had have had a cylinder on the shelf ie Land Rover , they would have used it . It is not just the size of the bore . It is the stroke , the configuration of the valves and the weight of the vehicle all have to be taken into consideration. Many months of work went into the...

Hi Scimjim, when I said light I did not mean light as a modern car . The comparison I experienced today between my car and a friends convinced me to make some changes . If the genuine parts can be obtained imho that’s what we should be fitting . When I said what I had fitted was disco Master and Sla...

Hi , Thankyou so much for your replies . The reason I need the part no is I want to convert back to original to give me a much lighter pedal . I drove a friends 6a with an original Lockheed system and the pedal is much lighter than mine . The set up I have at present is Land Rover discovery . I have...
