Hi before i go out buying a clutch just wanting to know what you people think. I got a crate motor box and clutch for my s14 silvia. Was driving it and felt like the clutch was slippijng i dropped it a few times and then went around a corner went down to 2nd on high reves then it pulled back and was making sort of grinding noises not gear box grinding noises then at a set of lights when i took off from a complete stop it stalled then drove off then came to a complete stop. I couldn't move. I can put it in any gear with out the clutch while car is running doesn't make any grinding or any other noises also when i jack it up drive shaft or wheels don't spin. Would be my clutch correct! Got told by a neighbour is was the pressure plate shatered , trying to confirm. thanks.

you've spun the centre out of the clutch plate be my guess, methinks the pressure plate would have made a bit of noise before and after destruction.

sweet wanting a new clutch anyway, it wouldn't be the box at all correct!

would be the clutch plate in wrong way!

frogs61, Dec 21, 9:26am
not to sure, when i put the new engine/box/clutch in drove fine, clutch was already in the box bought it complete from osaka. Think I may of shattered something!

He asked the same question back on the 5th. 2 Weeks later and he still hasn't dropped the box and pulled clutch and flywheel. Stop mucking about and get it done

The straps on the pressure plate have snapped/broken. I never buy anything from Osaka now after nearly parting with $400 for some cusco adjustables i won off here only to pick them up and they where leaking hard out lol. 'Nek Minut. he cleans them up and re sales them on here i noticed. I don't like businesses that operate like that! which is why he is apart of my blacklist.

hijacka, Dec 21, 10:23am
No that sucks for the person who payed him out for damaged goods, He deals in secondhand Nissan stuff generally it was only really a 1off item that i was interested in which is why i know that they where the same set of shocks he has recently re sold.
Jap race are good i use them alot and nz performance, they are down off papanui road now in papanui
