    Howdy everyone!

    I have attached the web address to the video of my 13+:1 compression ratio 2+L, with solid lifters and cams that Force would send back as too radical.

    I do need some help!!!!!!

    I have a brand new ACT 4 puck sprung clutch with brand new Fidanza aluminum flywheel. At first for about a minute the clutch was perfect, then it started to slip like it almost wasn't engaging. I have determined it can't be the slave cylinder due to it is not engaging, I torqued the flywheel to 60 lbs with red locktight on them, an pressure plate to 20 lbs with lock washers and new bolts provided from Fidanza and red locktight. I found read the instructions from Fidanza and it instructed to use the factory torques specs. So my only guess is that the torque specs are a little light and I should bump them up increasing preload on the disc. Please weigh in on what torque spec you all think will work or what you think it could be. I have already taken it all out due to it doing the same exact thing before and I changed the flywheel from a knock off or old Fidanza to a brand new one. After inspecting the clutch it was in perfect shape.

    Thank you all in adavance!

    I have put a new fidenza flywheel with it. I show no oil on any of it I tighted up the torque to 45lbs per acts installer guide and it still slips like it is on ice. I am talking no weird noises or smells. I need help please on what you all think it is.

    I have double checked the following
    All surfaces were throughout prepped
    Torqued according to instructs with new 10.9 class bolts
    Brand new act sprung 4 puck with matching kit
    Brand New fidenza aluminum flywheel No leaks confirmed and very lit lube used on input splines no residue anywhere.

    I reused the clutch assembly from a 1993 Saturn but was in good working order and feels good

    I have done nothing more than start her up and it slips quickly after it gets going so I stop there
    No weird noises, any kind of smell, or smoke.

    Like I said before please members of this form help me spitball some ideas to figure out what's going on.

      try scuffing up the friction surface with some 80 grit by hand maybe. i had weird stuff go on myself. i had 3G hydro/clutch problems. went to 2G clutch/hydro and never looked back. did a nice burn in with a 4/5th launch - 3rd beer in so take that with a grain of salt. turned it off let it cool off, off you went.
