Default Whats a rx7 clutch diff worth?

A guy I know has one, I have no clue what to offer him, 100 shipped sound good or is that too much?

I paid close to that for mine, but it was freshly rebuilt.

225 is a damn good price, the cost to rebuild mine was 180 alone...

sweet, thanks for the replys guys.

The guy said it has alittle over 100k miles, used redline oil all its life, and works good. He said hell take 100 shipped so Im makeing out good I guess!

Also, how can I tell if it needs new clutches? how exactly do you measure it? try rotateing each end in opposite directions?

Pull and Pry method here....set the backlash and installed it.

once installed, kept one wheel on the ground and a torque wrench on the axle nut on the one in the air....added "torque" until i could slip the discs.

iirc, factory is 60-80lbs. cant remember.

I thought anything past 110 was kinda drift-o madness, how is yours at 180?

its pretty much locked all the time. only time actually notice it is in reverse. I have no issues driving in the rain or around corners....I quite enjoy traction.

Where can you get the rebuild stuff and what do I usually need?

And how do I tighten it up?
