Default 949 Twin Disc

I just bought a used 949 twin disc, it has the organic discs but I was wondering if I could just buy the ceramic ones, have the flywheel and floaters surfaced and put it back together? Or is the pressure plate different for ceramic discs? I tried calling 949 but got no answer.

Thanks

You can't interchange the friction material. How much do you want for the clutch?

Very cool, thanks for the info Emilio. I actually already have had a couple of offers to make some money on it. But I am keeping this one for myself.

The organic is a pretty mean setup, I drove crusher with the organics in and it was like driving a REALLY grabby single disc with a race compound disc. The ceramics are like chirping the tires at idle to move the vehicle a few feet lol.
