Many of us have relied on McLeod for years to provide good quality Clutch / Pressure Plate combos in stock as well as upgraded stock or Custom (T5) hybrid conversions.

I wonder if this company will be willing to work with us to fill the void?
There was some trouble with spec a while ago so when I get so getting some new parts I might give them a try.

They do a lot of diesel and it seems already sport compact / import and some custom conversion work i.e. a cummins engine in a ford chassis / drivetrain.

FYI.

Slant on!

Greg

I am either blind or dumb, or maybe both! I only see a stage 1 and 2 for a slant 6.

there appears to be 3 versions of the stage 2
the 4th version is labeled as 'drag race'

the stage 4 is listed as custom - made to order.
my assumption is that they would do a custom - made
to order 10 inch slant clutch package,

No pictures doesn't help. I would want to see what they were ordering in/making up custom... for a long time after the SPEC smackdown, companies were offering 'better than stock' diaphragm clutches, but were ordering the same pressure plates and discs from the company that made those items for SPEC, and just boxed them under their brand instead only to have the same problem...FYI...
