Southbend Con OFE

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking I better start looking into a clutch for my truck, and I read Mike you have the Southbend Con OFE. I'm looking at this site here in Canada and wondering did they change it that it's not called the same anymore? All I see close is the OFEK but don't want to get the wrong set up when I order. My truck a daily driver HO with the Nv5600 6spd. Have the Edge with attitude and want something that wont slip but good for daily running. Best to go clutch/pressure plate/flywheel when buying? http://www.peakdieselperformance.com/Dodge_Clutch_South_Bend_Clutch.html

I'm sorta confused........what are you asking?

If your asking what I think your asking you don't want the CON OFEK. That clutch is for transmissions with the 1 1/4" input shaft. Your truck has the 1 3/8" input shaft so you would want this clutch http://www.peakdieselperformance.com/catalog/item/4914492/4993122.htm . As far as the flywheel is concerned, you can take it to a machine shop (possibly NAPA) and have it machined true again usually $20-$30. Just like brake drums/rotors it has a min thickness so if you have had it machined before make sure its still within specs.

--- Update to the previous post...

Whoops, I looked at the WRONG OFEK clutch. I didn't look at the 1947-OFEK. The difference between the 1947-OFEK and the 1947-OFE is that the OFEK comes with a flywheel. If your flywheel is in good shaped (not gouged to heck and back) and you have not had it machined before you can save $200 and get the OFE.

And to answer your question about driveabilty, I am running the 1947-OFE and like it so far. While I was breaking it in it was pretty grabby compared to the stocker. But after the break in period it feels only slightly more aggressive that stock. I have had it for about 90k and had no issues.

:rolleyes: I don't know what I was looking at, or apparantly wasn't looking at. I saw it after I posted. Thanks for the reply though chllngr528. Not sure if my flywheel has ever been touched so when it comes time to order I may just bite the bullet and put all new in
