rubber clutch centre

My rubber centered clutch plate is stuffed.
To change to the spring loaded plate do I need to change the pressure plate too - or just order a spring loaded friction plate.
Thanks
Alan

What year is your 930? How many miles? Most 930s will be a spring center by now.

Mine is an '82. I believe they were rubber centred at least until mid '80's.
I could replace with rubber centre - but seems generally people go to spring centre. In which case will a spring damped friction disc fit straight in - do I need to change pressure plate too?
The pressure plate I have seems different to the SC one of same era - much deeper to accomodate the donut in centre.
Seems odd that an SC friction plate is adequate for the extra torque from a 930.
It has 130,000km on it - but it has also had a hard time prior to my purchase.

In addition to a spring center friction disc, do I need another guide tube and throw out bearing, or will the originals do?

Alan, I would recommend just bitting the bullit and doing a full clutch cange along with re-surfacing your flywheel. And yes, go with the sprung center hub as it is more reliable then the rubber center. Im just thinking that it would be worth it to do it all the first time and not have to go back in a few years down the road because one thing you didnt change is now worn.
Even if you are doing this yourself, it dont cost too much but it is pretty big pain in the a$$.

If you use deep "rubber" pressure plate and spring centered "shallow" disc you probably won't need new T/O bearing or anything else. Check pressure plate for wear though.

Remove the flywheel and resurface, buy new bolts. Torque correctly.

Take it from a mechanic. While your in there do it all new w/the exception of the flywheel if it can be machined? If you modded your motor for significant horsepower step up and buy the pressure plate from KEP that is sprung heavier for the additional horsepower. Bite the bullet and take the hit and do it 1 time only!

Of course, complete new clutch asembly would be best. But in case you just want to make it work, you can run with new disc only. OEM PP holds for lot's of torque too.

To be honest with you Alan ,If your close to stock with the aluminum plate you might be ok. My engines probably in the 450 range and I went with the aluminum plate and once I got the cable dialed in it hasnt slipped. If you go with that setup Im pretty sure your gonna need the spacer also. Yeah I agree they will kill you in the wallet,but take your time and compare prices. The cheapest for the fitchell and sachs was Zims 299.00$ which was a deal, check them out. I made a list and pretty much put 3 columns for 3 different suppliers and just got the parts from who ever was cheapest. Fix all your oil leaks while its all on the ground too. Good Luck!
