Guys i beg for help!!

Ok I just finished installing a new clutch and flywheel on my friends car. I've done 2 before so I kind of have a good idea how it goes. That's why my friends trust me I guess! A huge problem just happened. So all good, and installed, time to fire up and see how it sounds and drives. I notices that the car shakes a lot, I checked for possible missfire but came out negative, so please masters is there anything that could've run bad? Any ideas will help at this point. By the way the car shakes on idle, and on motion. Please help me!!!!!

Did you find out what those two pieces were in the kit? Probably some type of counter weights.

They look like some type of counterweights. Ask about them. Did the kit come with install instructions about what those are? Probably out of balance but not sure dude. Good luck man.

Those pieces are most definitely counterweights. I am sure that that clutch had many applications and it depends what the crank is balanced for. The mustangs have a counterbalanced harmonic balancer so those weights would have to counterbalance that counterbalance. It is unusual though as mist clutch kits are balanced from the manufacturer. I am sure if you contact them or look on the web there will be instructions of some sort as to how to set that up. Hopefully you don't have to rip it all apart again. Good luck.

Wow keep us posted if these are some type of counter weights cause that is good to know for future needs.
I have also done a few of them in my life never had to install them either.

Good Luck

Oh man that stinks for you.

The only good thing that may turn of this you will be good at them and can charge others here to do theirs in the future maybe.
Long tubes are a pain no matter what you try to do with them around. Mine are going in my car and my buddy doing them can do them with his eyes closed by now he said.
