need sv clutch kit

Discussion in 'Alpine Cars and Parts Wanted' started by Ashfried, Apr 27, 2015.

    Looking for:
    1. clutch pressure plate
    2. clutch disk (25 spline)
    3. release bearing

    this is for a 1966 series 5 #B395001227 LRX

    note: finding the disk and bearing is not much of a problem, but having trouble finding the correct pressure plate. If you know the correct part number... that would be useful

    Are you sure about the 25 spline shaft? That was introduced much later in the Series V production than your car.

    mikefuller2 recently purchased a 7.5 inch pressure plate from the UK. Check this thread (http://www.sunbeamalpine.org/forum/showthread.php?t=23135) and send him a PM.

    you are right!

    I think you are correct about not needing the 25 spline. I checked the engine number and it looks like I am a just under the cut off to need that. So i am on the hunt for the correct parts. I emailed mike fuller to get his contact for the parts.

    Thanks, it looks like you saved me from ordering the wrong parts!

    7 1/2 clutch stuff is hard to find as well, if thats the case I would go the early Alpine clutch setup for sure. :cool:

    Or you can send your old one off for a re-build, that's what I just did. Finding the 7.5 inch pressure plate was not quite impossible but I didn't find one.:(

    Wow you are lucky, but if someone has the parts it would be the legendary John Green
    Good luck with your rebuild.

    I found all the clutch parts

    It was a hunt, but found all the late S4 early S5 clutch 7 1/2" 10 spline parts, and I will be back on the road in the next few days. I am going to have the original parts rebuilt so I will always have a back up clutch, since they are so hard to find.

    Thanks for everyones help! :D

    What was the root cause issue for the clutch no longer working? Pressure plate?

  11. Ashfried

    Root Cause


    It was the pressure plate.... Worn to the bone, along with the throw out bearing. The clutch disk had a good amount of wear, but changed it anyway. The rubber boot was good, dont know why, and the hydrolics were all good.

    Car is shifting great, but I do have to get use to the feel of the new clutch. I am a little sensative about riding the clutch, it is not something I do, but the PVO must have.

    All I need now is a sunny day.
