    Clutch & Engine

    I'm sure this has probably been asked before but, What brand of hydraulic clutch has been found to be the best for a 351W/427 stroker with a TKO 600? And I thought I saw on here about stroker kits but I can't remember the name. Any help would be appreciated.

    Couple of questions:
    Hydraulic clutch - you looking for hydraulic throwout bearing recommendations or clutch? For throwout bearing, Tilton is fairly popular but expensive, I'm trying RAM.

    Stroker kits? Are you looking to build one up from a stock 351W, buy a 427 short block that's already stroked and add a top end kit, or full turnkey or....?

    I should have been more informative. Throw out style and I'm using a 351W that I have out off a 70 mercury. I was looking at a DSS kit (rotating assembly)

    I've run at McLeod RST dual disk, A RAM single disk something or another and a Centerforce Dual Friction. I'll run the RST on my current build. Have driven sintered iron in a 462ci Windsor, OK not a favorite but hooked well.

    The Centerforce was great for the money and application.

    All were with 400+ ci Windsors. Have run both steel and aluminum flywheels. 3.73, 3.27 and 3.46 gears. All were hydraulic / slave cylinder based actuation.

    New build will be a lightweight steel flywheel, McLeod RST, 427 ci 540hp/530tq, 3.31 gears, TKO-600 w/ .64OD. Not sure if I'll go with a slave or throw-out bearing system but will be hydraulic.

    What you intend to do with it matters.
