    Hi Guys.
    Its time to replace the clutch and while im at it, i want to make sure i do anything else required to ensure it will perform as it should.
    The clutch i am using is a Jim Berry, Sprung centre button clutch with 4400lbs clamp.
    I already have a 350Z fork and stainless steel line to the slave.

    Does anything else need to be modified or upgraded for the high clamping clutches?
    Is there a way of checking / testing to ensure the master and slave cylinders are working as they should?

    Cheers.
    Col

    Make sure you have the pivot ball to suit the 350z fork.

    Use a standard flywheel.

    You’ll love the clutch!

    Check and check.
    The clutch in the car now is a Jim Berry.
    I did seem to “wear it out” pretty quickly.
    Few drag meets I would imagine was a factor in that

    So is there a way of checking that everything is working as it should be?
    And the standard clutch master and slave is up to the task of the higher clamping of a upgraded clutch?

    I used standard clutch booster/master cylinder/slave cylinder with that clutch without any issues.
