Yea anything, i think they need a heavy duty one, but it does not have to be a ford one.

having no idea about those fords it should cost $350-400ish for a exedy or similar hd job. install could be a few hundred dollars. it should only be 3 or 4 hours of labour.

don't go too nuts, a hd will do all it needs to. one of those 1500pound-clamping force carbon ceramic button style ones will s*** you to tears. any reputable mechanic can replace them, so don't pay chump tax to get a specialty work shop to do it.

shop around. it will probably be cheaper to source the clutch yourself than get the mechanic to, even though they pay wholesale.

last time i bought a clutch i got it from some clutch specialist place in archifield, was a while ago but it was a bargain compared to everwhere else.

Yeah Nicks performance clutches are cheap. They are over at archerfield not sure about install but it cost me about $350 for a heavy duty clutch for a nissan patrol/holden. Also there's a place down at moss st that does them for about $1000.

Roadworthy Certificate? At least, that's what it's called in VIC. You can get an RACV check for like $75 and they will tell you what's wrong.

nah its road worthy. just the engines not really working, so he wanted to see how much it was going to cost to get it fixed / is anything else likely to break down anytime soon etc.
