Tried to contact sources I've used before, Custom Diesel in Poole and JDS but are either dead numbers or not answered, anybody suggest a good place to go?

Thanks

Re:Need clutch plate, cover, release bearing etc for S66

i've found Truckfix to be helpful and competitive on price

http://www.truckfixclutches.com/

they supplied me with a *properly* rebuilt 310mm pressure & friction plate (new fingers & hub, new release bearing) when no one else would/could

JDS usually answer and try to help
it seemed like a good idea at the time

I did eventually get through to JDS, they are investigating.

Past Parts quoted a rebuild, but was somewhat expensive.

I'll give Truckfix a call.

Many thanks.

havn't got on so well with Past Parts more recently - was mis-quoted on price - ended up paying around £115 to have a friction plate re-lined - came back with the worn hub (play in relation to gearbox input shaft) - the set-up seems to burn money like old newspaper - you send your part to them, they send it on to the people who do the work, back to PP and finally back to you - loads of courier charges - minimal work - big bill

Truckfix presumably do the work in-house - complete rebuilt kit - new fingers on pressure plate, new hub and lining on friction plate, new release bearing and all for about £150 delivered, give or take, IIRC - a slick and professional service
(supplied on an exchange basis - you can send your old units back after fitting the replacements) - they get my vote :)

Thanks so much for your help.

the 280mm clutch parts seem reasonably plentiful - the 310mm turbo-engine clutches anything but - I drew a lot of blanks before trying Truckfix from an ad in the back of CVC mag - guess it's just trying the right people - seems with anything Perkins related you are better off forgetting it's in a Dodge although when I stopped off at Lancing Marine, their drive-plates looked a little different!
glad to have been able to help
