RE: Clutch query for Turbo

Good idea. Too much work to change a clutch, to reuse old mystery stuff. Would be cool to make a setup for bench testing the hold of a yugo clutch. Chop a spline shaft out of an old 4 speed, adapt it to fit 1/2"drive torque wrench.

yeah the 1500 clutch disk is bigger, requires the matching pressure
plate and flywheel with the ring gear swapped over from a 1100/1300.
So you figure you just have so much torque when it hits high rpm that
it starts slipping? Thats something. Would be helpful to know how
much torque it takes to make your clutch slip. I don't know of a spec
for it. I know that springs can weaken and of course, there is wear.
One time i didn't have a impact wrench for removing a crank pulley
nut. chocked the wheels and put it in high gear. Didn't get the nut
off, but it let me know that the clutch would slip at a little over 100
ft pounds of torque. Seems crazy that performance clutch sellers will
just say "this stage 2 will have a little more hold than stock" and
"stage 3 will have a lot more" without quantifying it with some sort of
measurement. I couldn't find any yugo/fiat clutches on art's link.
I've been eyeing this one for my turbo cabrio project:

can find an affordable 1500 flywheel, I would go with stage 2
performance clutch for that instead.
