    Cool The clutch, seals and fluids job!

    This is the most money, actually the only money apart from servicing that I have spent on Big Red in the last 12 years. But if doing a job, I like to do it right. Or I should say, get it done right.

    As recommended on the forum, I went with an ACT organic clutch this time. My Exceedy organic was slipping like a drunk on ice.

    - ACT Organic street performance kit. (Clutch plate, pressure plate, release bearing, pilot bearing and alignment tool).
    - Refurbished replacement standard flywheel. (Machined, balanced and painted).
    - Nissan flywheel bolts.
    - ARP clutch pressure plate bolts.
    - Engine rear crank shaft oil seal. (Nissan)
    - Gearbox rear oil seal. (Nissan)
    - Gearbox front oil seal. (Nissan)
    - Gearbox drain plug. (Nissan)
    - Gearbox fill plug. (Nissan)
    - Diff drain plug. (Nissan)
    - Diff fill plug. (Nissan)
    - Gearbox oil (Red Line MT-90 75w90 GL4).
    - Differential oil (Kaaz limited slip diff oil 80w90 GL5).
    - Clutch fluid flushed and bled.

    When the box was off I may as well do as much preventative maintenance as I can. And genuine parts are such good value from EFI Solutions in Oz.

    replacement drain plugs is a bit keen.
    just pour the fresh oil in through the shifter hole.

    I wasn't sure if the ones on it were butchered or not, and for a few quid extra, why not get new genuine Nissan ones I thought! :-) And they are pennies compared to the overall full cost of the job. Should do me for another 15 years at least now.

    On a side note, I always found the Exceedy clutch heavy compared to standard. But the ACT is light, I can't remember what standard felt like now, but I dare say that this is not much heavier. And that is even with the ACT clutch being rated for higher torque than my old Exceedy.

    To follow and on order:

    - Clutch master cylinder (Nissan).
    - NISMO big bore clutch slave cylinder.
    - Braided clutch line to remove the clutch restrictor/ dampener.
    - Gearbox gearstick oil boot (Nissan).
    - Gearstick retaining c-clip (Nissan).
    - Gearstick bushing (Nissan).
    - Tail shaft nuts and bolts. (Nissan).
    - Gearbox mount bolts.* (Nissan).

    *As an example of price, these bolts are 30 quid a piece here, not including P&P. But from Japan, they are 7 quid each. (P&P and import to be added).

    It was actually your comments in the other thread that sold it to me. So thanks! It is heavier duty clutch than my old Exceedy, but yet with a light pedal. It feels really nice!

    Ahh cool. A decent clutch can transform a car so glad you’re liking it
