Clutch disc question

I purchased a Sachs clutch kit a while back for my 924s and never bothered to open it until now. To my disappointment the clutch disc included with the kit has the old style rubber puck in the middle. My question is can I keep the pressure plate from this kit and just order a new disc or will the new disc also require a different pressure plate?

Why not install the rubber puck version, itís a good clutch that will likely perform and last just as long as any other. My original lasted 140k miles before it went into ďget you homeĒ mode.

The pressure plate for the rubber center and the spring center disk are the same.

That said, a new rubber center will likely last 15 years or 100K miles, at least, and be quieter.

The kit is dated 1994. Even though it was sealed I don't wanna put my trust in a 25 year old piece of rubber. I didn't even realize people still ran these I thought they were long gone

Wow thatís old, shame really. People donít use them because they are expensive and they'd rather buy the cheaper, aftermarket non puck versions instead. I wouldnít hesitate to use it if it wasnít old stock, itís a superior clutch design to a simple plate.

I do not think it'll deteriorate in the box but if it'd stress you out there is no point in running it.
Having run the rubber and spring versions back-to-back the rubber hub version is really nice for NVH.

Anyone here use centerforce clutch discs before? I'm looking at getting this one as I can only find the Sachs on it's own in 240mm. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F19 2818793717

Oh! And get your flywheel and pressure plate resurfaced for it to mate properly

One thing I have noticed after replacing the rubber centered clutch on two cars (along with a short shifter kit) is a loud buzzing in the shifter handle under heavy acceleration. I assume that is due to the springs in the disk.

Not sure. I guess that depends on your setup...I have the CenterForce dual friction stage II clutch and pressure plate with an aftermarket flywheel the P.O. installed I just had it resurfaced. All I can say is I love it, I did not hear any buzzing noises at all when i had one installed in my 8v. I will see how the 16v treats me it has the OEM flywheel as far as I know and I am sure the dealership resurfaced it already....could the buzzing sound be apparent or louder if the little sound deadening and rubber boot material is missing from around the gear shifter itself?

I can still use Sachs pressure plate with Centerforce disc right? My problem is I've already got a new Sachs pressure plate that I don't want going to waste

I don’t see why not the centerforce pp looks like it was built off the Sachs core

John just posted in another thread that he has a bunch of low-wear Sachs discs.
