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 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.
