1941 Pontiac clutch


Recommended Posts

Two suggestions:


1) Send a PM to KornKurt (Kurt Kelsey) here on the forum.

2) California Pontiac Restoration  http://pontiacparts.net/


Or, consider getting your old one relined. This could be pretty inexpensive if you just need the lining replaced. If the pressure plate needs refacing, a good oldschool clutch and brake outfit can probably handle that too. A couple I know of:


1) Brake and Clutch Supply (of Seattle, WA) https://brakeandclutchsupply.com/locations.shtml

2) Brake and Equipment (of Minneapolis MN) https://brakeandequipment.com/machine-shop/


I walked into Brake and Clutch (Seattle) about 3 years ago and dropped off a screwball Buick clutch plate to be relined. I had it back the same day (!).


Throwout bearings and pilot bearings occasionally show up on Ebay, if none of the suppliers turn out to have them.

If you only needed a disc any supplier might have one if you don't scare them off by mentioning 1941.  I picked up a disc for my 1930 Pontiac by going in to a local GM dealership, putting my old disc on the counter and asking if they had anything to replace this.  The counter man went away and was back in a couple of minutes with a clutch disk out of a 6 cylinder Camaro from the 70's or 80's.  Hub was the same, diameter was 3/16 larger.  Has worked perfect for years.


Good Luck
