Glenn.
I would be very interested in what the part numbers are when they replaced your clutch.
If at all possible would you please advise what the numbers were and pic's if possible.

Thanks.
Dave.

Hi Dave

I never saw the new one, but the number was PDK42016 Kit was $165. And a bit hard to get he said.

Its not the same as a standard earlier Bellett as the internal spline count is different they told me. (Possibly Chev LUV ?)

The old one broke out one spring in the clutch plate. The whole section around the spring had apparently cracked and parted company. The one on the other side was about to go also. Fingers on the pressure plate badly worn also.

Flywheel was machined also.

see picture.

Part number is Powerdrive. According to their info the kit is to suit all Gemini with G161Z's. All KB early series, 20 to 26 4X2 and 40 to 46 4X4 with G161Z's and C190 diesel also. No listing on Chev. LUV.
However. Clutch Industries listings quote all of the above as well as Chev. LUV. and Shuttle 2.0l diesel.
Some companies from overseas that start to import and supply in Australia only look at certain models of vehicles that are current and are after a certain date. At this point they only stock the fast moving kit and the lesser models at a minimum. That is possibly the reason why it is hard to get.
I know Clutch Industries don't stock particular kits in Brisbane. But if an order is received they source the components from all over Australia and when completed send the order as a kit.
The other point is having a motor industry supplier that uses their product. e.g. Bursons and Repco. I had never heard of Powerdrive until I started to research the part number. Maybe an old company with a new name or a new International company that has started out since I left the motor industry.
This is only a touch on the parameters of "demand and supply". There can be so many reasons to manufacture and have a market available.

Dave.

Thanks Dave, very interesting.

I had a feeling it might be Gemini although the guy said the spline count was different. Perhaps he meant compared to a usual bellett clutch plate?

Looks very much like a Gemini clutch plate to me.
It might be a different kit due to the pressure plate being a different version tho. I've seen a few with different bolt patterns.

Last time i looked at a Gemini clutch was in late 70's...... memory slightly faded these days !

If you count the splines though, according to the Clutch place, it's different to a Bellett type. And even longer that i looked at one of them.
