Is my clutch size a 10 or 11 on a 1981 F100, three on the tree, custom explorer, 300 6cyl

Asked by Jun 09, 2015 at 08:28 PM about the 1981 Ford F-100

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I don't want to pull my transmission to find out if my clutch size is a 10 or 11, isn't there
any other way to tell? The clutch needs to be replaced because the truck starts out very
slow, and if I give it too much gas, it just revs up, however it's still drivable

Your going to have to pull it anyway to get the flywheel turned, you just can't slap a new clutch in there and expect it work without chattering cause you didn't turn the flywheel, then you can match parts while it is at the machine shop, always do the clutch kit, that will have the pilot bushing, clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing and you won't have to be in there again.
