Crossover/interchange part number
Anybody have a good Napa/oreilly/LAP number for a 1961 Hawk
Clutch/cutch kt? Mine's a 289 4bbl with 3 speed on the column and
overdrive. Not sure if mine's a 10 or 11 inch, one of the old NAPA
listings on Bob Johnstones site lists a 10-1/8 for a v-8 Hawk or Lark
(old Napa # r1806), but the same source lists a Hawk with a 289 (210 HP)
as an 11 inch clutch (Napa R-2572).
Since i work in a parts department, If I can get a good number for a
clutch kit, I can get it at my dealer's discount...I'm not usually a
CASO, but this time of year I am!!
My napa book says 61 clutch cover = CA-1555 in rayloc brand
and 60 hawk = 361456
clutch plate with facing = 7248 for 10 1/4" but it says that is 55-60
throwout bearing = s-1136
My book is a 62 version, so it may not have all the 61 stuff in it.
The disc is a 10.5" GM, 10 splines X 1 3/8". I'd like to know the
clutch plate assy interchange info also, since I'll be replacing the
clutch & disc in the GT during an upcoming engine swap. One thing
for sure, I will not put a HD clutch in any Stude V8. Did that once; too
much pedal pressure, and too much wear & tear on the linkage. Weak
points that failed were the ears on the pivot shaft inside the
bellhousing that push the T/O bearing (should be welded anyway), and the
coupler that connects the two shafts coming out of the frame (cracks
and is not repairable).
So, I'd like to know interchange with a standard clutch plate assy.
Isn't the disc 10 spline x 1 1/8" intead of 1 3/8"?
