Default Which Clutch Installation Tool for aftermarket non-SAC clutch? - 04-17-2019, 11:26 AM

I'm swapping out my busted ass motor for a used motor which means I have to reinstall the clutch, except I don't have the clutch install tool and I wasn't the one who installed it originally to know which tool was used

I did a bit of research and found it to be 26 splines but the diameter I couldn't find. Then there's also the BMW clutch install tool but I'm like 99% sure it will do me no good because I have an aftermarket clutch. For reference I have a Spec Stage 2 clutch with steel flywheel.

Looking to find one local or order it online so that I can get done sooner than later. Or if anyone has their clutch installation tool leftover from another job please let me know.

Still looking for one boysss

To the guy above me, your post history looks like you have a 335is clutch which I'm not sure if that uses the same tool or not since its an OEM part

Did the aftermarket clutch install change the output shaft on the transmission side? I would imagine the aftermarket clutch would have to be manufactured to the same splines / diameter or the clutch wouldn't mount to the trans. Do you have a pic of this aftermarket non sac clutch?

I'm not sure. They seem to supply it when you buy the clutch.

I looked into this some more, never done a clutch job so I was confused as hell looking at the oem tool which is smooth. I thought there was more importance to the alignment of the splines but I see now that it's more about centering the clutch flywheel and pressure plate while bolting it up.

Thanks
