Desirous Of Clutch Spring Measurements
Written by troy.ohio_pc800 on 4/16/2010 at 09:13 am

        Seth, I picked up my stock clutch springs today and just measured them. They all did appear to be 38mm long. Geez the service limit of 36.5mm, 1.5mm difference, is only about the width of the flattened spring end. The diameter appe
