Re: Clutch opinions for a 67 SS
When changing the clutch the pilot bushing should be replaced (as stated in an earlier post, use a bushing, not a bearing), replace the throwout bearing as well. If the car is going to see 6000 RPM or more, an SFI approved flywheel and bellhousing are necessary - in my opinion. Take the time to install the bellhousing correctly, otherwise you will encounter high RPM shifting problems.
I have used McLeod clutches almost exclusively for 40+ years and have had excellent results with them.
