Clutch Kits

Post by alfadave »

Anyone heard of AWC clutch kits?
Did a google search for a kit for a 1.8 Marina engine.
Re con clutch kit less than £40!

Not heard of Rhino parts myself, but I usually steer clear of refurbished clutches, don't know why really, just a feeling. Remember fitting one years ago, must be 30 years ago, and it didn't perform well at all. So that put me off..

I tend to agree Kev. I’ve never been a big fan of refurbished clutches . Especially if your start to run tuned engine with an increase in hp over std.

That being the case. I’m sure it’ll be fine Dave. However I would avoid doing too many 7k clutch dumps

Rhino Auto Parts emailed to say they didn't have the refurb kit, and refunded me.

And I've found new stuff from a local Ebay seller!

I was glad to get my refund.

The guy at Rhino is Balbir Baden.

I googled his name. Seems he thought the Inland Revenue were busy people, and didn't want to burden them with more work!

As said Dave, sounds like a win.
Still plenty of quality clutch kits out there for the sake of "saving" twenty quid.
