More on E series I6 clutches

As luck would have it, my EF XR6 pedal box started to give way again a few days ago and I could only see worse to come with busted cables, torn firewalls etc and the clutch pedal is way to heavy for normal use.
SO, I decided to dump the heavy duty stuff, turns out I had an RPM Performer pressure plate and what looks to be a fairly standard PBR clutch plate, I hunted around a bit and came up with a Daikin clutch kit, the pressure plate and clutch plate surfaces are almost 1cm wider than the one I had and the clutch plate springs were doubles + it comes with a 2yr/40,000K warranty if you machine the flywheel, so in it went.

Bloody magic, I can now adjust the clutch pedal to be level with the brake pedal, previously it was virtually around my left ear, the bite is more positive than both the original XR6 clutch and the H/D one, and best of all the pedal effort is about as light as a Laser now, no way will this give me anymore pedal box problems etc.

For the record, it cost me $497 all up, that included machining the fly.

If any of you guys are in Perth with E series clutch problems, your quite welcome to drive it, and no I don't work for them :)

Yep, had to call the mechanice for it, hence the delay!

The common part number used is R1128N, this will get you an EF clutch in general it seems, I was told you use it with /Daikin on the end.
The Daikin part number is 255-1128.
Apparently 255 is the clutch size in mm.
