INSTALLING A SOUTH BEND DUAL-DISC CLUTCH IN A 2006 DODGE WORK TRUCK any diesel owners like to shift their own gears, especially those who depend on their trucks for hauling heavy loads. One such person is Roy Dorn: he's a general contractor from Sale Cree
Installing a South Bend dual-disc clutch in a Dodge work truck
MSince upgrading to EFILIVE, tuning and improving the airflow with an AEM intake system (see the February/march 2018 issue of UDBG for the details), Dorn knew that he would be pushing the limits of the factory clutch. Rather than waiting for the clutch to burn up, he wanted to be proactive and replace it with an upgraded clutch that would easily handle any loads. So he contacted the experts at Beans Diesel Performance, who suggested replacing the factory setup with a South Bend Clutch SDD3250-GK Street Series dual-disc clutch kit, capable of handling between 550-650 horsepower and up to 1,400 lb-ft of torque. The kit comes with a new single-mass flywheel, dual-friction clutch discs, 3,250-pound diaphragm-style pressure plate, clutch fork, throw-out bearing, installation hardware and upgraded hydraulics.
