CLUTCH AND PRESSURE PLATE INTERCHANGEABILITY

1992 Mazda MX3

Transmission problem
1992 Mazda MX3 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 167, 00 miles

So I am about to buy a 1992 Mazda MX3 with a 1.8L V6 in it and it needs a pressure plate and clutch. I have a pressure plate and clutch for a mazda mx3 with the 1.6L inline 4 cylinder. Can I put the clutch and pressure plate on the V6 mazda?

thank you

What year for the 4 banger?

If it is also a 1992, no it will not. Likley the year will not matter, but if it is different let me know.

I dase this on Part numbers from Napa.

Its a 93. Ok so since the engine is bigger it wont " except" the clutch then?

That would be " Accept" ; -). Different part numbers.
These are the specs.

92 V6: # Clutch Disc Splines : 22
Cover Size : 8 1/2" Disc Hub I.D./Input Shaft Size : 15/16" 93 4 cyl: # Clutch Disc Splines : 20
Cover Size : 7 1/2" Disc Hub I.D./Input Shaft Size : 7/8" 2 different animals.

I wouldn't let the clutch cost persuade me.I'd throw it on ebay myself.

Ok thanks for the info : )
