I am installing a used 9" limited slip chunk in my car. Should I go ahead and rebuild the clutches, or is there a way to check them before I install it? Any sites as to how to do the clutches would be appreciated.

Thanks VMF!

You can measure the torque it takes to break the clutches free or make them slip. You will need an axle in each side. Hold one in place and the other one will need the torque wrench on it. I think 175 ftlbs is correct or that may be the crush sleeve. Not sure right now on the number. I will have to go to the garage to look it up. Right now I am done for the night.

It's very easy to just replace the clutches now.

I think if you put clutches in it your going to have to have the ring back lash reset....then its not a amature job anymore. Somebody back me up???

I'm assuming this rear is in a `67 ! Which means it's more than likely an EQUA-LOC posi unit ! THERE ARE NO PARTS AVAILABLE FOR THEM . NO clutch discs or the plates between them .
Looked for two years to no avail . :: :: :: ::
