Re: Siebenrock Clutch Reviews
I had a transmission input shaft seal leak that coated inside the clutch housing with trans oil and wanted to change out the clutch assembly before converting to a Hannigan Trike. Heard about the Siebenrock plate from a friend and decided to give it a try as I was adding extra weight to the total tonnage of this whale. I didn't want to go back in there after the conversion as I knew it would be a PITA so I changed everything out, rear main seal twice, (cause I damaged the first one), pressure plate, diaphragm spring, clutch plate, bolts and most seals in tranny. As for being happy or unhappy, the jury is still out on that one. I haven't noticed any difference and it does seem to be performing nicely! I'm just hoping it will be a little more resilient to oil damage should any of the seals ever leak again. I also drilled the weep holes in clutch housing and slave cylinder.
