    Need you guys to help identify use/proper application of this pictured Borg/Beck clutch disc plate.
    It is 9" and NOS. It was advertised here as a flathead application disc. 001.JPG 002.JPG It is NOT a flathead disc that fits any trans ('39) that I have, so need to get it identified. Thanks for any/all help.
     
  2. It looks like a sbf clutch disc,but I guess they all look alike. HRP

    Danny, you just jarred an old memory of my second car in high school, 57 Chevy, the T-10 was popping out of gear on deceleration, bought another one from a local trans shop that had been contracted to build for a drag racer but never picked it up. They had put a Ford high nickel input shaft in it which meant I had to have a clutch disc with the Ford spline layout.
    I bet the guy that bought the car from me was scratching his head when he went to put a new clutch in it.

    That spline was used on Fords in the 1950s, not sure how much earlier.

    Thanks Brian and Jim for sharing your knowledge and identifying use of this disc.
    At least now it can go to someone who needs and can use it ! Nice USA made product with the 'captured' springs...if I didn't have such bad vision, would have seen 'small' disc hole. It has same same spline count as '28/'48 or so big shaft trans.

    54 and earlier Chevrolet. BUT, my 82 Chevette had a 9" clutch disc also, and 10.4 inch pressure plate; I replaced it with a 10.4 disc since it had a diaphragm pressure plate that would accept the larger disc; I just happened to have the 10.4 disc, and the splines were the same. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    I thought the Chevy disc had 1-1/8" spline?
