Default new clutch disk with old pressure plate and flywheel?

i was wondering how detramental it would be to just replace the clutch disc (relatively cheap) than buying a 400+ clutch kit?

i can feel my clutch on its way out, but i just purchased a new (used) transmission.

i dont think i can afford to buy a complete clutch kit before installing the new trans.

but i dont want to really fubar the car if its a bad idea using a new disc with an old pressure plate and flywheel.

i cant get ahold of a resurfaced one locally unless i take it to a shop (no core exchanges.

any ideas? what would be the problem with using a new clutch on old pp and flywheel

There is nothing wrong with doing that at all. I would suggest that you spend the small amount to get your stock flywheel resurfaced though before just adding the new disk....

Uhh, you'll be sorry if you use the old PP with a new disk. Believe me, I tried it and wish I had not back then. Learned my lesson and won't ever reuse a PP.

I guess if you are going to baby the car you'll be OK.

thanks for both your inputs.

i just have to find a place to resurface the flywheel and suck it up and just buy the clutch kit all together.

it sucks that this has to happen before the holidays

I am just saying it takes a lot of work to get to the clutch and I would rather see ya' wait for a while and stretch out the life of the current clutch until you have the cash to do it right.

You might be able to reuse the PP, but only if it is in great condition. If it has ANY blue streaks to it, then you are screwed. You won't know what kind of shape the PP is in until you remove it. If it is bad and you don't have a PP you will be pissed!

(my current trans has a worn ring and pinion and other misc bearings gone bad...)

Talking ideas

bought a stage II exedy/xact racing flywheel on ebay USED , there's a similiar setup for sale now:
'exedy wrx -decal, -sticker' without the quotation marks is the search I use, the one I got I had the fw resurfaced as suggested above, cheap worth the money.

also, clutchcityonline seems to have decent prices for combos, I try not to buy until I feel like I'm 'stealing' something from someone
