Once you switch to spring center clutch, the PP doesn't need to be so fat (wide). When you run one of these alternative and thinner PPs, then you have to run the extended TO bearing to make up the difference. Just a few more variables though because its not like you can look in PET and verify the part numbers are correct for the car.
Exactly right. In theory, the shorter PP with the longer TO bearing extension should put the tabs in the exact same place relative to the clutch fork. Just one of the things I need to check if I pull the motor.
