Re: Diaken Clutch Question

rip off! unless they machine and balance the flywheel and pressure plate and give your gearbox an oil change

Re: Diaken Clutch Question

Ur crazy right, 550 is a rip off!, mate ive been quoted 730 for a stock ford clutch fitted, and ford said its 510 for a stocker just to be supplied, 550 seems bloody good if u ask me, but then again wat the hell would i know hahahah

Re: Diaken Clutch Question

ghey thats a crap price.
I'm getting a clutch fitted and the price I've been quoted for a RPM heavy duty is $250 +$50 for the flywheel to be machined!
He is a mate though.

Breathe! It's only the internet....

Re: Diaken Clutch Question
