Can anyone identify this clutch. When i bought the car years ago, it was supposed to have a RPS clutch. Today i pulled the engine and removed the clutch, it has Toyota and ASIN on the pressure plate.
The disk has six slots and looks nothing like a factory or a six puck. I looked at RPS's web site, and found no clutch disc that matchs.

I am not sure but i thought RPS took stock pressure plate and modded them. Anyone know for sure?

If this is a stock pressure plate, then it has held up pretty well concidering a few passes down the 1/4 mile with slicks and numerous 600+ hp pulls on the dyno.

Any info would be greatly apprecaited!

BTW anyone have a McLeod brand aluminum flywheel? I know they make domestic flywheels, but never knew thay had one for a 7m.

Looks like the standard RPS pressure plate, not the max one.

This is the RPS MAX pressure plate. Note the extra half spring fingers. They use OEM toyota / AISIN outer core so it will say that and they only place a RPS sticker on the outer edge of the PP housing. They typically paint them blue.

Yours looks like the street PP with a weird disc

This guy is absolutley correct.

I remember when the previous owner was talking about running this piece.

The pressure plate is an RPS unit. You can't tell the difference between it and the 2600 RPS plate aside from the color of the casting. I pretty sure the stock units are bare metal.

Nope.. McLeod makes one.. apparently. Its a custom piece. You'll have to call them. You'll also likel have to spec out the hub as far as splines and input shaft diameter.

I read some something once on the SOGI site that Eric E. used a RPS disc with stock OEM pressure plate.

I guess i read it wrong, or he changed it. All i can say is it has held up quite well!

Since i am on my second rebuild and a quest for 1K RWHP, i thought i would freshen up the clutch aswell.

Thanks for the input guys!

I could get a pic of a stock PP but is it really worth my effort? it looks the exact same as your pic just bare metal

Looks like i need to call both RPS and McLeod tomorrow.
The flywheel need a new steel insert, and i need a new disc.

Thanks though.

FYI, RPS will not rebuild that unit as all they sell now are the dual diaphragm disc. I tried to get them rebuild my old RPS 2600lb unit about 3 months back.

If you want the same pedal pressure, try out HPF. They still list the old RPS 2600lb plate. Not sure if they can get it, but it's listed. Maybe they have a handfull of them. If they are out, try out clutchnet.com. Their race disc for $359 is the same unit. I've had both the 2600lb RPS and the CN "race only" plate and its the same pressure.
