Since Nancy was purchased over year ago, we've never had an issue with the clutch. Shifts were smooth and the clutch grabbed well. We at RestorationCRX believe that no restoration should be complete without at least inspecting the clutch and flywheel. We were lucky we did...
We have absolutely no idea how many miles were driven on this disc but as you can see it was on its last legs. Time to go shopping.
We couldn't find any new OEM clutches or flywheels from Honda so a unanimous decision was made to go with the next best option. We opted for factory replacement parts from Exedy, a long-time OEM supplier for Honda.
Oh and we could've just resurfaced the stock flywheel but that wouldn't have been very RestorationCRX-esque.
We've used Exedy products in the past and have always gone for some of their more popular performance models. However for this restoration, simply going with their factory replacement parts was more than enough as we didn't have plans to upgrade the output of our D16A6.
In total, the Exedy clutch kit and flywheel cost us a little under $200. Both can be found on Amazon. Very affordable for quality parts from a well known brand. We can't wait to get these installed for our next video update.
