Tech Corner
Clutch Chatter / Improper Installation
Irregular Lever (or Clutch Fingers) Height
The installation procedure for clutches seems a little picky, but not following it could damage your clutch. We've posted a few photos of damage and some helpful hints for the proper installation of a clutch to prevent clutch chatter.
A clutch unit can experience chatter due to the misalignment of the pressure plate to the flywheel during installation. The fingers can become unparalleled when the proper bolt tightening sequence is not used, causing one side of the diaphragm to drop lower while the other side says in place.
One sign your clutch was improperly installed is irregular wear on the clutch fingers. If the wear isn't consistent on all the clutch fingers, the clutch wasn't properly seated on the flywheel or bolted down securely.
You may also find excessive hot spots on the pressure plate.

So how do you make sure the clutch is properly seated? Follow these tips:
  • Make sure the pressure plate is properly seated before securing.
  • Tighten the pressure plate bolts in a cross corner pattern to finger tight BEFORE using a torque wrench (in a cross corner pattern) to secure the pressure plate to the flywheel.
  • NEVER use an impact wrench to torque down pressure plate bolts.
  • Check to make sure the plate fingers are parallel after installation
  • You can use a 0.0015" feeler gauge to ensure the cover is seated against the flywheel after being properly torqued down to spec.
TREMEC TRANSMISSIONS
The Tech Behind TREMEC
TREMEC transmissions are produced in a state of the art facility to very high standards. This video is a little dated, but it is an excellent look at how TREMEC takes raw materials and transforms them into quality controlled, heavily tested, and durably built transmissions.

Jason Rodgers' 1969 Camaro
We know that even if we have the best products, it's all for naught if we don't also have the best customer service. Thanks for telling your friends, Jason!

Hi Cheryl,
Thank you for the update.
It's very rare anymore to find a company that has not only a great product but outstanding customer service that y'all have given to go with it!

Keep up the good work and I look forward to doing business with y'all in the future!

I am a member of a couple online first generation Camaro forums and every chance I get when someone asks where to get their transmission, I always mention you guys. Here's a picture of your company's decal on the back window of my 69 Camaro!

Take care,
Jason Rodgers
