    Clutch Alignment Tool

    Well I was hoping to get my drive line installed into my YJ next week but to my surprise the Centreforce clutch kit I got doesn't come with one. . . Anybody in the Hamilton area have one I could borrow for an AX-15 mounting to a 4.0L? or know where I could get one? Theres beer in it for the kind donor. . .

    most clutches don't come with an alignment tool...find a socket that fits in there nicely, use duct tape to make it fit snug (if needed), then use an extension to make it long enough to do your setup...or PA likely sells them...

    The PA ones are kinda shyte because you still have to stick your beak up in there to make sure the tool is in the center while you line things up and tighten it down. The plastic spliner jobbies are nice cause they hold everything exactly where it should be. That being said i have both and have probably used the PA one more because i can never find the plastic guy when i need it. You're more then welcome to them but i'm a bit far away. Unless you know someone passing by Etobicoke. Cheers

    Thanks for the tip about the socket I think I'll go with that, I was surprised it didn't have one because the NAPA kits do. The tub isn't on the frame at the moment so should make this easy.

    when I was a mechanic the boss one day bought a clutch kit for a job, and it had an adapter in it. Since then I havent done too many clutches but always had one in the kit. Maybe someone borrowed it

    Years ago I was doing a late night clutch job. With nothing to around that would fit I used some masking to centre the clutch on to the pressure plate. I ran it around the outer edge and just enough to hold it in place. I bolted it up in to place. Surprised it did work as the masking tape just got shredded up when I used the clutch.

    My Sachs clutch for my NV3550 came with the tool. Centerforce is getting cheap?
