Thanks BC_ZX3 - learn something every day!
So I'm curious as to whether a simple replacement of the faulty clutch disc (and a thorough cleaning) solved your problem
- No I replaced the clutch and therefore had to change the flywheel as mine was the original pre-TSB version. The new style OEM LUK clutch for the SVT is a bit larger in dia. so it needs a new flywheel too.
It was not cheap! C F M in Florida sold me the kit which included the through-out bearing, pressure plate and the alignment tool.
- regarding your question - I'll go now and post some pics of the flywheel and pressure plate - perhaps you both can shed some light on what happened. I think heat with a worn friction material did it.
It was the non-flywheel side of the clutch that was distroyed.
And BTW at the time I was passing an old slow 60's Camero at a normal speed and when I was level with him, he floored his throttle and tore off - I pursued and we got .......fast. - - - then "pop" as I tried to sift down a gear and then was unable to change gear..... :(
