In a car with a manual transmission, the clutch transfers power from the engine to the rear wheels. It's what helps the driver to shift gears while driving without causing harm to the transmission or engine. A clutch disk and a pressure plate make up the "clutch." The clutch disc is sandwiched between the pressure plate and an aluminum or steel flywheel.
The pressure plate squeezes the clutch disc against itself while a Mustang or any other rear-wheel-drive car is driving and in gear, and the flywheel then transfers engine power to the transmission. The power is then transferred from the transmission to the driveshaft, which transfers it to the differential and finally to the rear wheels.
When the clutch is engaged, power is constantly transferred to the rest of the drivetrain. To shift gears, however, the clutch pedal is depressed, causing the pressure plate's springs to compress, causing the clutch disk to release from the flywheel. This allows the engine to rotate independently of the transmission, allowing proper gear changes. The clutch pedal is released after the transmission is moved into gear, allowing the pressure plate to compress the clutch disk to the flywheel once more, passing power back through the drivetrain.
If the clutch, pressure plate, or flywheel in your Mustang is worn out, this can result in power loss to the drive wheels and makes for an unsafe driving experience. Whether you have and 100% bone stock V6, GT, or Cobra or a 1000+ horsepower GT500, LMR has you covered with top of the line clutch components.
