Mcleod Twin Disk Clutch and
Aluminum Flywheel With Steel Insert

by Mell

If you are reading this in the distant future, this type of clutch upgrade will probably be old hat. However at the time of writing (12-20-00), this clutch system is highly controversial due to design mistakes Mcleod made on the slave unit and the lack of a powerful enough master to drive the clutch. Also see my C5 Corvette Clutch Master Cylinder Upgrade.

We are going with this system because of the gripping potential of a twin disk system and the availabilty of the newly designed slave and the master cylinder upgrade. Here are the shots of the various components of the application.

The complete twin disk system in all its glory.

The disks and center presure plate that doubles the clamping force.

Completely assembled unit.

All new (12-20-00) 1371 slave TO bearing.

Beautifull Mcleod aluminum flywheel with steel insert.
