    If it cant be fixed with a hammer, use a bowling pin.

        swamprat, you have the right part and he has the right name. Despite it being a clutch replacement it is called the distributor brake.

          I would have expected better than that from Vantage. At face value, the name change seems completely unnecessary and serves only to cause confusion.

            I have some of them. Keep it clean and they work just as good as the original clutch. Comes with the enviro bushing in the pinion gear so no oiling. I have had to put a dab of grease on the trip stop lever. Had to do it on the old clutches also though. I heard somebody might be selling them for cheaper though can't remember who I heard it from though.

              They run well enough but are verrrry expensive.

              If you do not keep them clean they will eventually squeal and/or spew rust colored brake dust everywhere.

              There are much cheaper (better, too) clutch alternatives.

                    Your distributor shaft must be perfectly straight for these fro work.

                    I have had them squeal, emit lots of dust, have the drums score badly, etc.

                    Do not use them.

                    Roller clutches are the best!

                      I now only use the roller clutch. A great product. But I use the original pinion and sleeve with them.

                        squeak like crazy if they are not kept clean. We just bought one to try out and it is reliable. I just couldn't imagine 32 of them just from the noise standpoint. Its a cool idea though
                        New is not always better...

                          Wow. Im surprised that more people havent switched to these. I have around 7 or 8 and these things work like a champ The best thing is there is no freaking adjustment for your night guys to screw with. Yeah it gets a little break dust on the big cam once in awhile but for operation Ill never buy another old clutch again. If they stop making these Ill go down to a machine place and have them made. They got my endorsment. King Im surprised you dont like em.
                          They say that the **** rolls down hill but the smell always starts at the top.

                            I'm with King, They are nice to some degree. I love the fact that there is no adjustment but the brake dust is killer. If they used a better quality brake liner or ceramic that wouldn't create so much dust and also combine the roller clutch idea of a roller so we don't need to aply grease then it would be the king of all clutches. That is the problem with most clutches whether you need to keep them clean or adjust them from time to time. If some one could come up with an idea to prevent all those conditions then we would have a most awsome clutch.

                              Has anyone had to remove the plastic ring in the back side of the plate in order to achieve good indexing? I now have 2 roller clutches without the backing rings in service. Either...
