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.
