Correct clutch for 914/6 conversion

I am still working on my 914/6 conversion. My shop is now mocking up all the engine parts for the installation and I still a need a clutch and I am not sure which clutch I would need.

I am installing a 2.5L (originally a 2.4L block) to the stock 901 that was in the car. Anybody help would be greatly appreciated.

your four cylinder friction plate and pressure plate will owrk fine. You obviously know about the six bolt flywheel.

Yes I have the correct flywheel. Will the stock clutch be able to cope with 210 hp?

Yup, it should be able to. KEP makes stiffer pressure plates if you want to be extra sure.

I'd go (& did so) with the Kennedy Stage I & the stock 6 spring disc.
The combo has held up very well behind my hot rod 2.7L. for 7 years....so well that when I rebuilt the motor this last couple months I didn't hesitate to just put all of it back in.

I hope tommott doesn't mind me glomming on but I'm doing a /6 conversion useing a 3.0 with a 901 tranny. I have purchased the "special ring gear" that supposedly will allow me to use the 3.0 flywheel. So what pressure plate and clutch disk should I use? I want to use OEM Porsche parts if possible. Anyone have part numbers of what I need?

I just helped my friend do this one a couple of days ago. You need to use the regular 914-4/ 914-6/ early (pre '71) 911 disc and pressure plate with the special bolts that were supplied with the "special ring gear". You also need the "special throwout bearing".Search PP for the clutch and pressure plate part numbers by application.

If you want original I have a Sachs light weight pressure plate and clutch. It was run for 4 minutes only.

Unfortunately I didn't get any " special bolts " with the special ring gear. So what makes the bolts special? And what is a " special throwout bearing " ? What makes that special? Thanks

There's 2 types of bolts on the ring, the short ones that hold the ring in place, and the long ones that hold the pressure plate and the ring on. The special throwout bearing fits in the 901 fork and I don't know what else was so special about it, but it came with the kit.
