Q & A

What's in the Box

Ram has put their extensive knowledge to work developing this extremely durable 7-1/4" clutch. The four paddle multi disc clutch design has twice the friction material of other 7-1/4" clutch units and features a proprietary friction material known for its outstanding durability. The Ram 7-1/4 will also bolt directly to most existing 7-1/4" flywheels.

Multi-Disc Features:  

  • New internal drive mechanism provides smooth, driveable engagement
  • Twice the friction material of other 7.25" clutches
  • Proprietary Ram friction mix known for outstanding durability
  • Discs feature 8 rivet hubs for added torque capacity
  • Bolts directly to existing 7.25" flywheels
  • Chevy applications use Ram throw out bearing 605-48100
  • 3-disc Clutch: 9.7 lbs (weight without the button)

Tech Tip:  When installing a new multi disc clutch, be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for correct set-up.  You should also replace the pilot bushing/bearing.

Tech Tip:  To extend the life of your expensive racing clutch you should not use it to load the car on or in your trailer.  The amount of slippage this causes is worse than a night of racing.

ARP Fasteners 130-2201 Chevy Pressure Plate Bolts

The importance of pressure plate bolts in a racing or hi-performance street application cannot be emphasized nearly enough. These fasteners play a key role in both the performance and safety of a vehicle. Because of this, ARP has developed these special High Performance Series pressure plate bolts that are application specific to ensure the optimum grip length.

Ram Clutches BU656K Kevlar Pilot Bushing, S/B and B/B Chevy
SKU-890656
                        

This replacement 1955-04 SB/BB Chevy pilot bushing is CNC machined from a Nylon/Kevlar composite that has a wear life five times longer than steel and prevents input shaft scoring.

Even better, it does not require grease, which eliminates the possibility of contaminating the clutch.

  • .598" I.D.
  • 1.105" O.D. 
Ram Clutches 1510-10 55-85 Chevy Light Billet Steel Flywheel-153 Tooth
SKU-60515101
                        

These Ram 10 lb. racing flywheels are made of billet steel, not a cast stock piece cut down. Will work with 10.5" B&B or diaphram style pressure plates. These flywheels MUST use a solid hub friction plate (sprung hubs will not clear).

Note: This flywheel requires very short bolts for mounting, as it is very 'thin' in the center. Use ARP flexplate bolts # 101-2002902.
