how heavy do you want it. the gu td42t safari tuff clutch is a straight bolt in and is massively stronger.
or just go a tb/td safari tuff still alot stronger and better than the original. and yes td42 and tb42 safari tuff clutches are the same, part no the works.
but either way imo go with a safari tuff clutch quite good and can be had for round the 600 bucks mark or there abouts.
sunbury brakes have a website and are pretty cheap. and will freight anywhere in oz.

Only difference between the Exedy Safari Tuff and the std Exedy is the pressure plate is modified to give a higher clamping pressure. Everything else the same. Safari Tuff is overkill unless you do heavy towing or hardcore steep stuff on rocks etc.

I run the safari tuff in one car. good clutch and not much heavier on the foot than the standard one.

get your flywheel ground definitely, will be pretty cheap just take it into a clutch place. Probably a good idea to do your rear main seal while youre at it. saves taking the gearbox out again.

Very professional looking mob.
They built one to spec for me and didn't cost much more than a standard one.
Look on their web page at the stockist list and buy direct from there.

Adelaide Clutch make custom pressure plates depending on the clamp loads and clutches required.. should have been more clear.

Mine uses a cusion button ceramic friction plate from an exedy clutch, but they made the pressure plate (1500kg clamp load) to suit.

Extreme and Exedy are different companies.
Exedy is a huge Jap company and used to be called Daikin but their clutches are now made in Thailand. Half the Jap cars, most Jap trucks, and most Jap 4wd's in the world use Exedy/Daikin clutches as OEM and so does Ford and GMH.
Bit of useless trivia. :D

No thats not useless at all,

this all proves the reliability of EXEDY. I run exedy stage 1 clutch kit in both my 4WD and car. The clutch on my car is 5-6months old and it still grips the same as day one. Very VERY happy with it. Same story with the 4WD, even with 35's it still runs strong peroid.

I guess at the end of the day it depends on whatever budget you have and definetly on your heart. I love my car, saved a lot just for the clutch + labour $$$'s (whilest full-time uni).

Good luck,
