Manual Transmission - Clutch problems...maybe?
10-23-2008, 12:53 AM
Took my ss to my mechanic couple of days ago because of a bad vibration in the drivetrain....I tought it could have been the motor, but after the mechanic took the car for a run he tells me that its more or likely the clutch. Clutch is a centerforce dual friction...
What would cause this vibration in the clutch?
haven't taken the clutch out yet... going to wait til later this winter.

Well, I am not sure what flywheel you are using or the way that it is balanced but I guess it it possible that a weight has come off the assembly leading to an imbalance. There is nothing else that would logically lead to an imbalance that just radnomly occurs.

I agree with Spec-01 if a weight fell off your flywheel then you would definatly feel it and you would also have a heavy chunk of lead ratteling around in your bellhouseing. I was wondering what engine you have though because I am pretty sure that LS flywheels don't have weights, so we might be going back to the drawing board.

Even if he has an LS motor it is possible that a weight would be added to the plate for balancing purposes. An LT1 will have a weight bolted on the back of the flywheel of course. Either way though, loosing a weight will make it vibrate like an off-balance washing machine!!!
