I'm having a clutch custom built for my 3800sc swap. The shop wants to make the friction disc thicker and have me shim the pressure plate out from the flywheel about .025. They are also going to shave my flywheel down to .840. So, the questions are, what exactly is the reason for cutting down the flywheel, and am I wasting time shimming the PP out from the flywheel? (so when it wears and starts to slip, I can pull the shims out and not have to replace my clutch.)
After a little searching, it appears that about a quarter inch needs to be taken off the camaro flywheel, is that accurate? in that case, .025 isn't anything to be concerned about, correct?
