The vendor had the same issue and instructed us to use the bolts (it didn't takeuch if any tq, more coaxing than anything). In either event, once it is seated the engagement challenges are likely not...

It isn't install-related . A clutch job is dead simple. It doesn't engage or disengage consistently using various recommended settings.

I just use my right foot to hold the rpms at 2k or so for the first 45 seconds, and then it will idle on its own. T feels like you have huge, lumpy cams :)

You'd think so. Motiv had the same issue for a customer of theirs. Which alignment tool did you use?
Alignment and mounting was a smaller issue though, compared to the current engagement issues we...

I tried this. You can do this test with the transmission off and try to mount he assembled clutch/FW/PP on the floor. I found in my tests (many of them, spanning weeks) that it won't mount regardless...
Which clutch is this? I doubt it's the syncros if you haven't had this problem before but do now (especially if you just changed the clutch).

Yes, I had the same challenge. It wouldnt seat fully without using the trans bolts.
Your driveshaft looks awesome! Link please.

Thanks. I also bled. Mine just to be sure I tried everything.
Mine doesnt drag from idle any longer, but still has issues engaging/disengaging.

Yup. I swapped to the low this weekend with the same results. The engagement point comes up with miles, but it doesn't disengage (or allow gear change) periodically which is not acceptable.

Interesting. I didn't realize you used this method. Very clever.
Now, the only drawback is that you can't control fuel independent of ignition (load being your independent car), but I guess if you...

Hope that works for you. I started with the high setting and it was the same as you describe.
I would just buy a clutch PP/disk combo. They are engineered to work together so you can avoid trial and error. They run around $700 USD.

Give it a couple hundred miles and report back.
11-09-2014, 05:01 PM
Please describe what you didn't like about it.

Yes. It happens randomly at normal rpms, often on deceleration. It does it in first gear too, which is tough because the car wants to keep going. I have stock shifter, no clutch stop. I
I can say,...

From my understanding of clutch components, releasing should be a function of the pressure plate. The clutch disks, and PP should be the same regardless of flywheel bolt pattern.
I have a 6-bolt.
11-08-2014, 09:00 PM
Had the exact same problems. I started with the high setting. Today, I switch to the low setting and it still gets stuck in gear or won't go into gear due to it dragging.
Basically, the engagement...

When do you anticipate these shipping?

Besides going great, did it sit flush against the block without using bolts? What TOB setting did you use?
11-07-2014, 02:30 PM
That's an interesting data point. Perhaps your DMFW wasn't resurfaced. I had a 2+/DMFW with 500wtq for 20k miles that never slipped. I resurfaced it though.
11-07-2014, 12:21 PM
WTH? That clutch should slip at such a low power figure.
Did your trans mount flush to block without using bolts when you installed the twin disk? Do you have any clutch dragging is lack of...

I am talking about the PTF-branded twin disk from Spec. I've been working directly with Spec and Motiv on this. I will report back when it is resolved.
11-06-2014, 03:22 PM
I installed it in both the high and the low position, with neither allowing the trans to seat with the block (without uisng trans bolts). It also had problems fully dissengaging even in the high...

Have you tested this on the 2+? I sent an email a while back asking for this comparison. I'm very interestedin the delta.
