Clutches....
« on: 01:31:48 AM / 03-Jul-04 »
Hey guys,

While I am trying to get this thing running, I am going to replace the clutch. Are the CA18ET clutches the same as CA20 clutches?  Will this cluthc that I found work?

They are different To what extent I am not sure. I would think it would bolt in but would hold better don\'t quote me though!!

Hmmm... that looks the same as what mine did, but... The small round thing in the bag on the left side, I\'ve never seen that before. If its the pilot bearing, then thats HUGE!. I dont know. I don\'t really trust e-bay. I would rather get something from Somewhere that sells that kind of stuff, like a Checker Auto, or NAPA. Not an online auction-house. They dont garuntee that what you bought is what you were looking for. For all you know thats a picture of a clutch for a Supra, and the guy is gonna send you a dildo with \"HAHA, I CONNED YOU SUCKA\" written on it. You have no garuntees. Doesn\'t matter what they say. Just go to a parts store and buy one. I ordered one from Checker Auto for about $118. But you may be able to get a cheaper one depending on where you go. Not including e-bay.

I would say that the ET clutck would have more grasping power than the E, because the E has less power than the ET.  As far as bolting in, it should because they are the same transmission (to the best of my knowledge). But Nemesis is right...You CANNOT trust E-Bay...there are too many people there trying to rip you off!!! 8)

I\'ve never had a problem buying or selling on ebay. But there are certain things I wouldn\'t buy on ebay. A clutch is one of them becuse any parts store and their mother can get one for you

The CA18ET clutch is bigger than the CA18E clutch by 25 mm so it will not bolt on.
The clutch you are after is 225mm clutch, I have had a look around and have found out the 88-91 CA18det clutch bolts on (1000kg HD clutches:twisted: ) and also I think the CA20e clutch is the same size and will bolt on but you need to remember that the clamping force on those might be to weak for the turbo torque
