Only if I'm there to verify. Also, pull the inspection cover and take a peek

Did you make sure it was the right splines?

Eh? As in did it fit the input shaft?

Yes, he wants to make sure you didn't put the E series clutch disk on a S series transmission... or that ACT sent you the correct clutch disk.

There are different sized clutch disk spline hubs... if you got a disk with a larger hub, then when you mate the engine and tranny, the input shaft will slide right in with no problems, and may even engage the edge of a few splines... but start putting torque to it, it will sheer off the edges of the splines, and start a wobbling on the shaft making a sound similar to what you got going on there...

Never thought of that... it's possible... not sure how probable... but possible.

My friends accord went about 50 miles on a clutch disk on backwards....

Doubt that. Doesn't sound like a TOB to me.

I know its not the bearing. I'm pretty sure it's the disc. If I have time this weekend I'll start pulling it out.

We had a TOB problem last year. It doesn't sound like a TOB to me either.

Just goes to show... If you make something idiot proof, the world will build a better idiot.

I had no grinding sound. It just started instantly. The problem now explains why it became worse the longer it was running.

Transmission off (by the way the cheap $70 scissor type transmission jack from Harbor Freight worked perfectly). Initial inspection was fine. No real obvious sign of what was the problem. The second I pulled the pressure plate I discovered the problem.

Does the clutch disc look a little thin? I don't recall how thick it was when I bought it.

There's the problem!

I don't see any damage to any of the components in there. I looked up the kit information and it appears I may of received the wrong clutch disc :( I have the TC4-HDR6 kit that they list for the ST1*5 series. They have TM1-HDR6 that they list for the 95 MR2 turbo. I checked with ACT and the only difference between the kits is the alignment tool. They said the pressure plate & clutch disc are the same between the kits. I'm wondering if I should buy the TM1 alignment tool or not.

If the transmission goes on, the alignment tool means nothing.

Ive done them just using a socket and an extension.

I however dont think Id reuse those flywheel bolts though. Not sure Id trust em after that.

You read my mind. I'm gonna drop it and check the rear main (it should be fine, hell it only has 30 miles on it). I'm more concerned right now about that disc, I emailed ACT asking what the spec was from the factory new on the thickness.

You didn't torque them dude. No way that happens at spec.

PS: Lucky you didn't lose a leg.

So the answer was, you're too weak to torque bolts?!

4thgenceli

They were torqued down to spec with red locktite. I think the bolts were just made of phail. I'm gonna order some new flywheel bolts here soon & go from there.
