I bought one when I did a rebuild on my 78 280. Looked just like the Nissan one, but I couldn't get the Nissan one for a few weeks. Decided to get the Diaken. Most worthless piece of **** produced. I allowed it plenty of time to "break in" break being the key word. Let the clutch out at anything above 3000 and you go nowhere, plus I think it is warped or something, because it take complete concentration to let it out without chattering!! Wish I would have bought centerforce, and probably will this summer. If the Diaken lasts that long!!!
well at least the stage 1 sucks.I blew one up in about 6 months. Ive been running the clutch i had been running before I got the centerforce and it has held up to some abusive racing the last two years. i cant remember the brand but I think it was Beck Arnley , although I know i only paid 95 dollars for it 5 years ago! Later,norm
I have the centerforce dual friction and it is bulletproof,you couldnt make it slip if you wanted to-I would highly recommend it-I have had mine about 1yr and numerous burnouts later there are no problems
Because I have one to put in my car as soon as I can gather some buddies to help. Life sucks after back surgery, it just sucks less than before it!! You're always trying to get someone to pick things up for you!! Heh-Heh
Centerforce I is no better than stock, but the Centerforce II that I am using seems to be really nice. Very light pedal action from a standing stop, but grips like a banshee when you put the pedal down. You can order them from Performance International for $170 for a 78Z and the throwout bearing was another $14. It came in 2 days. <A HREF=http://www.performanceintl.com> Link to Performance International </A>
They also have the absolute best prices on K&N filters.
39.61 for a filter I can buy at a local store for 39.95 and the cleaning kit at Autozone is 7.99 compared to 8.95 at Perf? Then add shipping compared with tax and thats a no-brainer. Even if it's $5.00 cheaper, it's a no-brainer. At least thats the price I decifer.
