Passing on / seeking information on who actually makes Centerforce Dual Force and CFII model clutches. Recently discovered this by accident. Maybe this was already discussed, but am hoping someone could share their knowledge or experience on this. Was preparing to install a new Centerforce Dual Force clutch set; CF model number DF161675. While cleaning the pressure plate face with brakleen, some of it dripped onto the orange paint on the cover. The paint CF uses is the cheapest rattle can crap and will flake or wipe off with almost any solvent! This got me paranoid about the paint chipping off and possibly getting stuck between the disc, so decided to remove the paint and discovered the pressure plate is made by Valeo; and manufactured in Korea. The Valeo part number etched onto the pressure plate is GMC-35/279270. See the first photo. Did a web search for this specific Valeo part with little results. But did find that Valeo did make a similar Dual Force clutch (PN 72672201), however it is NLA. Centerforce website has no information on where or who manufacturers their clutches, only they have a new "manufacturing" facility in Arizona. Always thought Centerforce products were made in the USA. Now that I know these CF clutches are made overseas by a third party, am contemplating using it. Talked to a buddy who has more experience with street / strip clutches, and he recommended either a Hayes or Ram powergrip HD set up, as the CF clutches he's installed were hit /miss. Coincidentally he had an older CF II pressure plate that a customer returned. Picked it up and stripped the paint; no part number, however there was a Valeo log etched that was covered up by the Centerforce sticker.
