Does anybody have any experience with the Advanced adapters, chain clutch? I have one on my jeep and a centerforce clutch! My problem is the lack of slip in the clutch! There's no play in the petal and It just engages hard...so hard im cracking my axle tubes at the perches! I've tried adjusting the chain via the all thread adjuster with no luck! Is there another way of adjusting it? Is the centerforce clutch the problem? Im tired of re-welding my axle tubes back together but I like how my clutch petal dont get hung up on off cambers....help me!

Unfortunately that is your problem, the Centerforce has no slip whatsoever. In all my years of rock crawling I'm still using the stock clutch which is strong and works well. Sometimes you hear from others that things are better when they actually work against you. Yes no doubt that the centerforce is a sturdy clutch but not for my personal application.

If it's really a problem, take centerforce off, sell it and go with a good stock that slips a bit on you.

Thanks Jim B! I kinda thought that a race clutch in my Jeep was a bad idea, but it was in there when I bought the Jeep and never had a reason to change it till now......many thanks!

I had a Centerforce dual friction clutch in my CJ and loved it, though I had the strongest left thigh in Miami from using it as a daily driver. I just installed a new LUK clutch in the YJ and so far I like it. Haven't had it on the trail yet, but can report back with the findings.

I have a centerforce clutch, I like it and don't seem to have a problem with it grabbing as descibed above.

There is no problem, it's the way they work with no slip. Makes a big difference in the terrain one wheels in. Muleboy does rocks and some do flats and mud which is more forgiving and that is why you probably don't notice it as much. Grabbing traction of a terrain makes a big difference.

I personally would not go near a Centerforce, I've driven a few Jeeps that had them. Some still use it in rock terrain as well. Preference is a big word as well as how intense in rating of a trail you undertake.

Maybe a bit but it's that instant grab which gives you no instance of control without a slip.

Try a Luk Gold, mine came with a slave cylinder which saved me 70 bucks and the price is better than a Center Force II, the Center Force is made for high HP/ RPM it slips less due to counter weights on clutch as it speeds up, you won't notice it much on a Jeep at low speeds. I've had both, not worth the extra $$. Automatic is my next project 2 feet, 2 pedals = better control... :drive2:
