Well 1st problem was a surprise to me! It was when i was playing with my new flywheel n clutch fitting them together, i found the zoom flywheel has a 9 7/8" clutch bolt patern n the act 6puck clutch has a 10 1/4" bolt pattern! And zoom makes a smaller 1 Wtf!?! I guess if i can't use them together i need to pick 1 n trade off the other for something i can use lmao! Any idea's???

Thats one of the reasons, why I buy matched brands. You'd think it'd fit if different manufactors make the same parts for the same car. Thats where I found it was different at least on Mustangs. Like try using a Exdy clutch w/ a Spec flywheel. It might cost more, but it all fits & to me thats worth it.

I blame the retards the call themselves engineers! Y in the world wouldn't they make everything to work with stock equipment!?! And the artftermarket pays these people! If it all fit stock equipment it would work with otherbrands! Any1 wanna trade me the right part?

I blame the guy who ordered the part, that's why one does RESEARCH.....................you yourself called it a custom build, custom means 'non-stock', I'd say you were there.

MY PROBLEM IS WITH MY JOB NOT BEING QUITE MIDDLE CLASS! I GOTTA DO WHAT LIL SPOILED BRATS NO NOTHING ABOUT! I GET WHAT I CAN FIND A GOOD DEAL ON WHEN I HAVE THE $ FOR IT! I HAD THE ACT PRESSURE PLATE 2 YEARS! GOT IT $100 the i got the disc last month $150" then the aluminum flywheel i won in eBay a week later for $160! This week i got my a urethane bushings master kit!
