Don't forget the tube

Clutches from Borg & Beck

Published:  11 November, 2014

The Borg & Beck range of clutch products from First Line has reached 2,000 part numbers, covering traditional 2-in-1 and 3-in-1 clutch kits, concentric slave cylinder and solid flywheel kits and a growing range of clutch master and slave cylinders. The manufacturer offers the single mass flywheel replacement kit for models that have suffered a worn or failed DMF. This uses a long travel clutch damper technology to give similar performance to that of the original DMF but with an increased lifespan. More than 50 kits are available, the latest of which replace the DMF and clutch on the Vauxhall 1.3 CDTi diesel engine, used in the Corsa Mk II and II, Meriva, Tigra and Combo vans. A number of clutch master cylinders and clutch slave cylinders also join its clutch programme. The firm says that although the clutch guide tube is not officially part of the clutch kit, it recommends replacing the guide tube when a replacement clutch is installed. If not, it can cause the release bearing to become misaligned which can cause slipping or clutch control issues.
