I just got a heavy duty clutch disc for my SMTA. I was then told that the clutch would be grabby and that the disc would be hard on the flywheel. He said it is like the clutch wants to be in or out and no inbetween or sliding like when used for a loader. Has anyone had one of these and does it have that effect on the flywheel?

So if I keep my foot off the clutch it won't be too bad, just a little more wear. I was starting to get a little scared for a while. I had already bought it when I found that out.
Thanks guys!

Geoffry, If the disc you are referring to is the ceramic button type it will be very agressive and like you were told they do wear more on the flywheel and pressure plate . The advantage that they have over a woven disc is that they will handle allot of slipping and heat.If you do put put the ceramic in it is crittical that the flywheel be resurfaced inorder to get a smooth operating clutch. I hope this helps.

I grind a lot of flywheels. When I grind a fly wheel that has had a woven clutch disc, the wear is around .030 to .050. But the flywheel looks good. When I grind a flywheel with the button clutch the wear is from .030 to .065. But the flywheel looks badly worn. The biggest advantage of the button clutches is that the last longer than the woven disc's. Most of the time you will get twice the life on a clutch with the button disc.
