My FMS pressure plate shit the bed on me, won't release at RPMs near the shift point. I've got a good centerforce pressure plate and clutch set up that the clutch pieces came unglued from the main disc. Is there any reason I can't run the good FMS disc, with the good centerforce pressure plate?

We used to mix and match with no problems. As long as both pieces are are in good shape, they should work. Both are diaphragm style, so thats not an issue. I assume the're both the same dia? If not, a smaller disc will grab harder and shock harder unless its a sprung hub.  Good Luck!

I ran across this:


Take it for what its worth.

Doing more with less, or something like that.

I honestly don't get it.

I'm sweating, my heart is racing, my clutch foot is twichin', and my right arm punched the computer screen doing an involentary 2-3 shift while reading all that.
