my clutch is toast...

928 13
yup..on the way home from work today my clutch started to disengage under acceleration...then about 20 minutes later the clutch was totaly burned and i could get no power from it.....i stopped at a stoplight and it would NOT go...just sit there and spin....toast

and about 30 mins ago i went out to attempt to drive it...and i had nothing...it wouldnt even die when i let the clutch out while at a stand still.......bad stuff

Mine was failing and just got it replaced with a Centreforce one at 220,000km. Even my wife commented that my clutch works better than her Echo that only has 30,000km. Damn expensive tho'

Per the centreforce website - holds better. I find climbing hills or inclines a breeze in my car now, but scary in the Echo or using my old clutch. IF you were towing you would notice a difference too.

someone else can probably explain this more technically.

meh....i ordered a OEM clutch *shrugs* its not "officialy" my car yet, so i shall play by the fathers rules......FOR NOW!!!!...MUAHAHAAaaaaaa

so yeah found a good 4ALC motor for the swap...nothing fancy..but it only has 162K miles on it...and has high compression...within a week or so it shall be in.
I also found some 87 Corolla FX GTS power ajustable and folding mirrors.....:D ...im working on taking them and all the associated wireing out currently....this old rolla sedan is gonna be a bad mo fo when i get done with her.

a better clutch wouldn't do much for you... the oem's probably got a longer life and has just the right amount of clamping force.

I mean were not moving 8 tonne trucks with 1600TQ right?

oh yeah!

this rolla has over 70 horse power and NEARLY 6000 ft Lbs or torque

i can pull semi's!:rolleyes: :lol:

good point though...so the OEM stays till later:D

and those mirrors are badass.....but...anyone know if the power mirrors in an 86 corolla (i dont care what model) are connected to the fuse box? :confused:
