Not sure on the part numbers, but have you had one before?
I had one in the Mex years ago and found mine was very heavy compared to a standard clutch

They have their competition version but the CP2000-5 is just meant to be a HD road kit. I haven't used one of theirs before. My reasoning for wanting that one is just that they are a reputable brand as most on offer I havent even heard of before. This hopefully will be the last clutch change in my lifetime so If I go for something of exceptional quality then it should see the car till my demise. Not after anything race just for a standard car.

Ah cool, the AP stuff was good, I cant remember which model I had as it was years ago, but it was fine for the odd launch down the strip at Santa Pod, but in traffic it became hard work

Good luck with the research

Thanks. Im open to suggestions if there are other reputable brands out there. You have me thinking now was this AP HD kit too hard like the one you had.

According to an insider over here AP has concentrated on race/rally clutches since the market for clutches for road cars has been swamped by Chinese crap via the interweb. Even single cluch plates and/or pressure plates for road cars are nla. Helix is good as is Tilton.

Strangely you can still get the AP Clutch Plate on its own but they dont seem to offer a cover plate? Do people use HD clutch plates with standard cover plates or something?

Has anyone ever mixed and matched Cover and Drive plates before? I seem to remember decades ago guys doing stuff like that putting in HD clutch plates but with standard cover plates to reduce the harshness or something?

That atomic shop is in Germany (at the Nurburgring); never heard of them. You could email them asking if they can order it and if yes how long delivery is. But I doubt they really can get it. Burton's webshop is always very up to date and if they say it is nla then it probably is.

Both! Top one is Burton they have no stock left, bottom ones is Motorsport Tools think they still have some stock left.

I think the confusion was caused by the 'use' description against the plate part number - they are opposite between suppliers!

Yep that's the one! I suspect Motorsport Tools may be the correct one though and Burtons are in error?

Either way the Pressure/Cover plate that AP used to make to go with both of these, the CP2511-1 is discontinued. Can you use standard Pressure/Cover Plates with HD Drive plates?

In the old AP catalogue it is stated that you must now mix those AP Formula / HD parts with std items. Also the difference between the CP5351-1 and the CP5352-5 is that the 51-1 is steel-backed and the 52-5 is not. The 51-1 islisted as for the Pinto engine, the 52-5 for the RS1800. Torque capacity is the same for both.

I love how they change their minds when it suits them! I only found a quite old catalogue from 2013 or something and this is a copy of the exert. LOL
