97 3.2 Trooper - AR5 Swap ??Clutch Question??

Postby Mnot » Sat Feb 20, 2021 7:54 pm

I have a 1997 Trooper with an 4l30e transmission in questionable shape. I have an AR5 transmission and I just received the clutch/brake pedal assembly from a '92. So now that I have the major bits I need to order the consumables and the AR5 clutch is $$. But the MUA5 clutch is very reasonable. Since all years used the same flywheel, can I use an MUA5 clutch kit on the AR5? The AR5 disc is slightly larger than the MUA5 but I expect that my 3.2 doesn't need the larger clutch.

Thanks

I see no reason you can't use the smaller clutch with the AR-5 but make sure to resurface the flywheel face regardless of which clutch you choose if the flywheel is used.

Thank you. I will have to purchase a new one as I don't have a donor vehicle. I am piecing this together, mostly from RockAuto. I plan to use the Exedy clutch and hydraulics and a Luk flywheel. I don't know where to source the flywheel bolts, any suggestions?

Thanks

The Isuzu/Honda parts catalog shows that the same bolt is used to retain the AT flexplate or MT flywheel.
The part # is 8-97015-187-0
10mm diameter x 17mm length pitch??
