Aftermarket clutch with the stock hydraulic system?
I've been searching around and I cannot find an answer...
I've got a '96 Ranger, 2.3L manual. The slave is going and needs replacing, and I suspect the clutch is probably on it's way out, as well. My question is...is it possible to replace my clutch with an aftermarket clutch, such as a Centerforce? From searching the forums, it appears as if you can, and the Centerforce website lists a clutch for my year, make and model, however I called Ford to ask them, and they said that I could not, since it's a self adjusting hydraulic system. According to Ford, I would have to swap out the hydraulic system for a cable-driven system, or live with the stock clutch.
Is it just a straight swap? Is there anything that needs to be done, to put in an aftermarket clutch?
