refresh all aluminum 225mm pressureplate???

I am trying to get the inertia down because I like a lively engine. I have done several light wheels on a lot of vehicles, 914, 356 C in a speedster, two Toyota 2.5 trucks, Datsun 2.0 truck and a 308 Ferrari. Yesterday, I received a 6.25 pound wheel from Chris_7 in England, a beautifull piece of machining.

My 914 2.5 4 banger had a lightened wheel and a all aluminum 911S pressureplate and that engine was "HAPPY".

So, given the eye watering price, ($8-900) for an "all aluminum 7 pound unit, I am curious if others have rehabbed an older S unit???

Can the chrome surface of the pressure plate be properly re-chromed??, The spring renewed- or does it even need it?? What else needs to be done other than renewing the links from plate to clutch body?? and balancing.

ever hopefull,
chris

They can be "rebuilt". Not really a very accurate word to use. They move the fulcrum point and reinforce some parts. This is what I had done to my friends pressure plate.

I would look at this clutch instead:

You don't have to deal with vapor deposited steel on aluminum or have to have Kennedy rebuild it all the time.

Yes....and that is why I went with JWE. I got tired of having to send parts to Kennedy.
