    I have been having very weird symptoms with my clutch, it does not feel right at all sometimes i will go to release it and it slips quite a bit then catches other times its moderately fine; it chatters quite a bit while slipping it. Clutch pedal has free play, im at 106k and i have not been happy with the clutch since i got it at 84k. I am looking to get a lce clutch or whatever else would work better than stock

    Welcome to the forum. Sounds like it’s time to replace the clutch, pressure plate, and throw out bearing.

    I ended up ordering an exedy/ daikin clutch kit, it also fits a 1993-4 t100 v6. By my thinking it will be a stronger clutch as the t100 had roughly 30 more horse power and could tow more. I will update the thread after i install it

    Install is on hold untill i figure out what toyota wants to do with my frame; if they replace it i will have the clutch put in then. But untill i figure out what they will do for me the install will have to wait

    No need to replace it if they won’t do that.

    Update, the frame is approved for the recall but toyota still wanted 1 k labor to put the clutch in even while it was that far apart -_- so i am doing it myself. Today i got the trans out and flywheel and pressure plate out; i may have had the only factory luk clutch that made it 108k miles. This alone explains the weird feeling and slippage

    At least you’re going to get a new frame and you’ll have a new clutch now too. Ready to roll for another 100k

    Very displeased with my new clutch the release bearing was bad out of the box and i didn't know it until i had it all put back together, now i have to take it all back apart. Im going with an skf bearing this time

    Hate that you had trouble. You’ll be a pro when you’re done.

    I will get my throwout bearing problem fixed in the next few weeks, maybe i will do a write up on it.

    But for anyone who has a slipping clutch or wants something a little beefier than stock. These all fit my 2nd gen 2.7 r155f 4x4.

    Exedy kty16
    Aisin ckt 065
    Exedy 16806b ( stage 1 organic clutch)
    Exedy 16956b ( stage 2 cerametallic race clutch)


    But the base line is look for a 1993 toyota t100 4x4 v6 clutch if your limited to a local parts store

    All this information as far as i know only applies to 4x4 trucks unless im mistaken

    Personally for most people the exedy kty16 or aisin ckt065 will be more than enough the other two are for people who have motor mods or severely abuse the clutch

    I have the kty16 in right now and it grabs like a son of a bitch, just makes horrible throwout bearing noises
