Would the US clutches fit straight into Australian model Probe's? (I have a '94) You can get just the clutch plate - typically the part that wears out - would these fit into the existing clutch plate housing?? I know the 'performance' comment will/could make the answer more complex (with flywheel changes & god knows what) but is there an easy answer to this?
Ah yes buying Probe parts from FORD is latin for ripping your wallet out thru your pecker I will give you an example:
Set of ignition leads from FORD $400 from Mazda $150 from MOTOR SPARES $160 so I bought the Mazda ones
Dizzy cap from FORD $200 from MOTOR SPARES $60
Rotor button from FORD $90 from MOTOR SPARES $12
And something special , spark plugs from FORD $2.80ea from MOTOR SPARES $3.00ea it was the only thing cheaper
Now getting back to your clutch I can not see why the US one will not fit the AUS models or you can try a few clutch places directly or give this place a go if they are near you I have found them to be fantastic in price and service MOTOR SPARES
