Brute Power clutch kit giving me grief, anyone have similar experience?


Recommended Posts

So I cheaped out on parts for a clutch job and went with a "Brute Power" clutch kit and flywheel. The entire reason I did the clutch in the first place is because the original throwout bearing was squealing.

So I did the job by the book, everything torqued to proper specs and in proper order, made sure everything was clean, greased what needed greasing, didn't grease what didn't. And a WEEK after putting it all back together and getting it running, that fothermucking release bearing is squeaking again. Now I'm not saying it's completely impossible that I made a mistake somewhere, but I have a few years experience in the trade (a couple as a tech and a couple as a parts tech) and I followed the FSM down to the letter so to me this seems like a case of cheap crappy Chinese parts being cheap and crappy.

I'm just going to have to live with it because there's no way I'm doing a clutch on this old rusty biotch on my garage floor again any time soon.


Don't cheap out on important parts kids!!
