Replacement friction plates for 5.5" Super Clutch

Does anyone happen to know if there is another brand of clutch that uses the same friction plates as the 5.5" twin plate from Super Clutch?

Questmead might be able reline the plates you have. I'd give Alan there a call.

Try AP, I dealt with James Wills at Raceparts.

I would try Anthony Lane at Techcraft. 01926 410098. No one knows more about clutches (and brakes)

Alan Brown at Questmead Dave. Give him a call and ask the question.

TTV are making a lot of clutches now. Or Helix do custom work.

It shouldnt be difficult for any of them to supply new plates or re-con yours. If you know how thick they were originally...

Thanks for all the suggestions guys, my contact book for clutch related stuff has increased somewhat!

I have now found out that Quarter Master clutches have directly cross-compatible plates with Super Clutch! I've had some speedy and decent assistance from Steve at RTS Automotive. No vested interest, just a happy customer of theirs!

Hopefully a useful bit of info for any others out there with Super Clutch items that need refreshing.
