clutch friction plates specs

Post by stuartb306 »

Hey ppl's. I'm trying to install new clutch friction plates on the transplanted '85 1200 Limited engine on my '86 SEi. I know what the "service limits" are on the plates @3.20mm. What i need to know is, when the plates are new, what measurements do they start out at. The manual doesn't tell you what they are, only the minimum service measurements.

The other day i bought what i thought were NEW plates, and most of them are BELOW "service limit" specs. Thats what i get for trying to save some money and buying cheap knock-off parts instead of the genuine article. Now i have to send them back and wait for a refund.
