Icon4 Need Help Quick!!

My truck has been needing a clutch kit for a while.
the clutch is good but the release bearing squeals.

i found a clutch kit on craigslist...Brand new, in the box for half price

but i dunno if it will fit my 1987 2.3l

the kit is for a 94 ranger/mazda

it is a Dynapak clutch kit and the part number is : NU31276

need to know if this will fit my trans so i can go pick it up tomorrow....

Don't think it'll fit - I checked my application guide for a different brand clutch kit and I came up with different PN's for the '87 2.3 and the '94 2.3 engines.

best thing to do is do what Curtis did........call an auto parts store for a clutch kit for your truck now. Jot down the part number. Then do the same for the 'donor clutch kit' vehicle. Compare......if the same, get it...if not...i wouldn't.


IMO, it's better to buy from an autoparts store with a warranty...that way if the disc fried early or the slave takes a dump...there's generally a lifetime warranty(at least i know there is on the slave.)

http://www.partsamerica.com/ProductG...rtnumber=38100 if you go to advance autoparts.com and look up ur truck and part and it will say on the page See all vehicles this product fits click on it and it will show you all cars trucks that it will work on

thats what i did to find out that i can use a ford focus starter to rebulid my ranger starter they have the same rebuild kits.
and i use this when i go to the junk yard to see what other car i can get the stuff out of

after checking all the numbers

everything is the same except for the slave cylinder

so i'm buying the clutch kit off craigslist for the 94 ranger for $60
and i'll get the slave cylinder for my truck separately for about $30

so i'm still saving about $50
instead of buying the kit for my truck

not a bad deal
