The Centerforce catalog is one of the most extensive and complete aftermarket performance clutch publications available. We are continually making changes and adding in new applications. If a particular application is not found in the Centerforce catalog, please contact our Centerforce at (928) 771-8422 for possible new releases or additions. Also, our research and development department may be able to custom build/modify your supplied parts for other special applications not listed in the Centerforce catalog. This service is especially helpful on exotic and specialty-type vehicles. Please feel free to contact our technical department at (928) 771-8422 regarding these special services.
All patented Centerforce clutches are designed to be a direct bolt-in high-performance clutch system needing no special modifications for installation.
Our friction materials are designed to be used with the stock flywheel, aftermarket steel billet flywheels, or aluminum flywheels with steel insert heat shields. If you are replacing your stock O.E.M. Flywheel, be sure that the new flywheel meets the same specifications, such as ring gear tooth count, flywheel thickness, ring gear offset, etc. All billet Centerforce flywheels are designed to meet standard O.E.M. Specifications and are S.F.I. Approved.
In order to maintain proper clutch service, it is not recommended to rebuild patented Centerforce clutches. However, repair may be possible in some cases by Centerforce, after inspection of the assembly. Please contact our technical department at (928) 771-8422 for further information.
All patented Centerforce products are designed with longevity in mind, however, clutch life will greatly depend on the vehicle, your type of driving, and the output of the engine. For example, a vehicle driven in heavy stop-and-go traffic will have a shorter clutch life than the same vehicle that is driven on the open highway. Regarding trucks with oversized diameter tires, they will typically get less clutch life than a truck with stock tire size.
Typically, the weight of the patented Centerforce clutch assembly will be very similar to the weight of a stock O.E.M. Clutch assembly. If rotating mass (weight) is a concern, Centerforce manufactures a lightweight clutch assembly designed specifically for competition use. Available in limited applications the Centerforce LMC (Light Metal Clutch) Series saves a considerable amount of weight when compared to conventional clutch systems. Please note, these lightweight clutches are intended for competition use and are not recommended for street applications.
Q: Will a Centerforce clutch increase my pedal effort causing damage to my cable, hydraulics or mechanical linkage?
Centerforce clutch systems utilize our patented Centerforce weight system where applicable, combined with our superior friction materials allow us to engineer clutch products that increase performance without increasing clutch pedal effort. This is important in order to maintain comfortable drivability as well as to prevent overloading the release mechanism.
Q: My engine is used mainly at low rpm’s; will the Centerforce centrifugal weight system be beneficial for my application?
The answer is yes! While it is true that centrifugal assist is a direct function of rpm, the patented Centerforce weight system is effective and will add additional clutch performance at all engine rpm levels.
Dual Friction discs are custom built and designed to be used with specific pressure plate assemblies. The pressure plate assembly and clutch disc should always be replaced as a matched set. If the disc has worn out, so has the pressure plate. In some cases a dual friction disc is available separately due to changing of the transmission and/or input shaft dimensions.
