So this car i'm getting in two weeks needs a clutch. This is all i was told. I have been trying to look around for the actual clutch. Would it be the clutch assembly? This probably sounds confusing, but i just dont know where to find a clutch/assembly. Would i have to pull one off of another car? I've also checked car-part no results, anyone know im looking for? :ugh:

if its for that car your getting that 5spd gts then buy a clutch from advance if all your looking to do is get it back on the road.

Well, i was trying to keep it under raps for a bit untill i could get pictures and when i own it. But it is a 1990 GT 5spd with a fresh 5sfe in it. But the guy said it needed a clutch and then i asked can i drive it home? and he said there is no clutch in it. Does that mean just a clutch kit will take care of it?

Yes, just get a clutch kit.

The cheap kit from Advance/Autozone/Napa will take care of it.

You could go with OEM, but that would be expensive.

Good luck with your new car.
I recently replaced my clutch components from www.1sttoyotaparts.com
31250-17040-84 clutch disc - 52.04
31210-32130-84 clutch pressure plate - 67.74
31230-32060 release bearing - 37.93

I replaced the flywheel rather than machine the old one since I was able to get a new one for $55. I also replaced both axle seals and rear main seal while tranny was off.

I just did mine as well and my clutch kit came with the pressure plate, release bearing, and clutch plate. Make sure you get you flywheel machined before you put your new clutch in though.

I would go OEM...it's still cheap as said above. I had a clutch from NAPA before, and it was total shit compared to the OEM clutch I just put in.

I didn't realize that OEM was that reasonable. I would got that route for sure.

Out of ignorance didn't use T-spoon, but will check out toyotaworld next time.
I will admit I cheated on the flywheel and got a Perfection flywheel (probably made in China) from PartsAmerica - cause it was equal to machine shop charges.
If you choose to go that route: Perfection Clutch 50108 is the flywheel part #.

Oh, well, usually any weekday between about 8 and 6 (course.. not during lunch..) CST. Tomorrow of course we'll be closed, but other than that pretty much any time.

If you can find one Cav, get a LUK clutch. My personal opinion, as well as others is that they are the best thing under a performance clutch.
