Revisiting past topic (clutch assy)
« on: February 10, 2009, 03:42:47 PM »
After reading the suggestions on clutch replacement I purchased the Center Force II, but havenít installed it yet.  I was recently told that it will have a heavy pedal and that an original style replacement would be better.  I donít drive the car a lot, but when I do I will occasionally get some rubber and go through the gears.  I realize on the other thread some have said the pedal pressure with the CF II is fine, but I was wondering if in comparison will there will be a difference in the stiffness.  Iím not sure what the previous owner had put in my car but it has a pretty heavy pedal now.

Also, I know that MacNeish says the bell housing is painted orange, but why did the vette bell housings remain natural color with orange overspray (according to the NCRS). Just curious.

The CFII pedal pressure won't be any more than the original stock clutch - I've used several of them in Corvettes. Orange paint coverage/overspray on the bellhousing varied widely, depending on what day it was, which engine plant, which operator, etc. - they went through the spray booth at 300 per hour; I've seen everything from an inch or so of overspray to full coverage on original bellhousings.
