NISMO

As NISMO products are handled differently from Nissan genuine products, this product may not be covered under the vehicle repair warranty.

Copying or reprinting any part of this manual without permission is prohibited.


After opening the packing, check to see if any parts are missing and the product is in good condition and not damaged.

Characteristics of the product


The semimetal type clutch disc may produce a sound caused by heavy pieces of metal striking together and cause a judder when
starting your vehicle, but this does not effect performance.

You will see various symbols in this manual. They are used in the following ways:

/ WARNING

This is used to indicate the presence of a hazard that could cause death or serious personal injury.
To avoid or reduce the risk, the procedures must be followed precisely.

/CAUTION

This is used to indicate the presence of a hazard that could cause minor or moderate personal injury or damage to your vehicle.
To avoid or reduce the risk, the procedures must be followed carefully.

/ Before Installation (to the technician)


1.

This product should be installed in a service facility equipped with proper installation tools and should be inspected by a licensed
inspector.
2.

When replacing, be sure to observe the procedures stated in the service manual published by Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., and be sure to
install this product while observing all warnings and precautions stated in this manual.

Do not make any alteration or modification to this product. Serious injury may result.

Before installing this product, confirm application and part numbers match your vehicle.
If the product is installed on an improper vehicle, it may result in vehicle damage or an accident.

The specified torque shown in this manual must be used.


Tightening bolts below the specified torque may result in bolts loosening and causing an accident.

Do not touch the wedge collar in the center of the pull type clutch cover. A poor disengagement of the clutch or a judder may
result.

Do not drop or hit the product.


The product may be damaged, deformed or disabled while being installed and a poor disengagement of the clutch or a
judder may result.

If the related parts (e.g. release bearing) are deteriorated, replace them with new ones.

If a bearing sleeve is specified, use the specified one.

/NOTE

/ Before Using (to the customer)

/WARNING

/NOTE

Always observe rules, regulations and posted speed limits when operating any motor vehicle.
Not doing so may result in only damage to your vehicle or could cause serious personal injury.

If any abnormal noises are heard or abnormal vibrations are felt, immediately stop the vehicle in a safe place and check your vehicle.
Driving with an abnormal condition may result in an accident and serious personal injury.

Do not use the product for anything other than the purpose described in this manual.
Any accident or injury incurred by improper use of this product is the sole responsibility of the user.

200km
Soon after installation, test-drive the vehicle for about 120 miles (200 km). Avoid any quick maneuvers.

NISMO

When the NISMO clutch cover is installed, the reactive force of the clutch pedal is increased, therefore, try to get used to it.

/Installation and Removal of Transmission

When connecting the transmission to the engine, never tighten the bolts to do so.

A dowel pin is used to connect the parts between the transmission and the engine. As the dowel pin is made of hard material
and the connecting parts of the transmission are made of aluminum, you may tighten them too much, even if the dowel pin is
inserted diagonally.

Tightening as described above may cause the main drive shaft to become angled, this results in a poor disengagement of
the clutch, damage to the disc, abnormal noises, or abnormal vibrations.

/CAUTION

When removing and installing the transmission, support it with a


transmission jack. Doing so not only reduces your effort, but
also avoids the trouble described above.

When installing the transmission, do not shake it side to side or up


and down. To smoothly put in the transmission, turn the gear into
the high position and turn the output shaft right and left.

When tightening it, refer to the list of tightening torques (page 6).
Tighten them in a diagonal pattern in four or five steps. Also,
check that the aligning bar moves back and forth smoothly at
the same time.
When connecting the transmission, similarly tighten the bolts in a
diagonal pattern in four or five steps, while checking that it is
tightened evenly.

/Handling the Disc



Use new gloves or gloves which have been washed and do not have any oil or grease on them.

Before working with your bare hands, remove any oil or grease that is on your hands.

Do not drop the discs. Doing so may deform them. Also, do not pile them up when storing them.
/Applying Grease

Different parts need different grease. Use the appropriate


grease, according to the description below. Also, be sure to
wipe off excessive grease.

/Application of Oil and Grease and Using Degreasing Agents


Application of oil and grease to the clutch disc, the cover and the flywheel causes slip, and may result in a
poor disengagement of the clutch and abnormal vibration. If oil and grease are on them, clean and degrease
them.

Although degreasing agents such as brake cleaner are available to remove excessive grease, if too much
agent is sprayed it may get into the serration and grease may leak out. To avoid this, do not directly spray the
degreasing agent on the part, put it on a clean cloth and wipe it on.

/Bleeding Air from Clutch Oil Line


/ Front

In vehicles equipped a the clutch damper or branch pipe in the


oil line between the clutch master cylinder and the operating
cylinder, lift only the front tires with a jack before bleeding air.

/Possible Problems
NISMO
3
Installing a NISMO reinforced clutch results in some differences from the genuine clutch. The three points
below are typical examples.

1) The reactive force of the clutch pedal is increased.


In the reinforced clutch, most of the diaphragm springs of the clutch cover are reinforced to transmit engine power to
the drive shaft without losing power. Therefore, the reactive force of the clutch pedal is increased.
2

2) Scraping sound is heard when the clutch is engaged.


When the metal clutch disc is installed, sound may be produced when clutch is engaged. This sound is produced
when metal surfaces of the clutch disc, the cover and the flywheel rub each other. This is not a malfunction or failure.
3

2,000rpm

3) Rattling sound is heard while increasing the speed when the engine is idling or the engine speed is low.
As the sport clutch disc and lightweight flywheel are designed to improve the clutch response and the output, a resonant
sound (rattling sound) produced in the transmission and the bearing may be more likely than with NISSAN genuine parts.
Especially, a gear chattering sound may be heard when increasing the speed while the engine is idling or the engine
speed is around 2,000 rpm. This is not a malfunction or failure.

/Common Problems (damage to rivets)


140kgfm

As the rivet of the copper mix disc has been produced to resist torque of140 kgfm (all sizes) in the bench test, there
is no problem on the strength of the rivet.

/CAUTION

, ,

If assembled as described 1, 2 and 3 below, the rivet or the cushioning plate may be damaged even if they are used for a
short period.

/ Disc-hub (normally installed)

When assembling the transmission forcibly while centering of the


disc is incomplete.

When the cushioning plate of the disc is deformed by shaking


the transmission when putting in the input shaft.

/
Disc-hub (installed in 1 - 3 methods)

When installing the transmission with the center misaligned or at


an improper angle against the engine.
* If the rivet or the cushioning plate are damaged after driving a
comparatively short distance after the clutch has been installed, most
of the cases are caused by an improper installation like the above.
* It is recommended to ask a reliable service shop to do the installation.
NISMO

NISMO performed the bench test described below to reproduce the symptoms
of damage caused by an improper installation.

/Experimental method (reference)


1.

When installing the transmission, a washer is put between the engine and the
transmission and the transmission is forcibly installed diagonally.
2. (10kgfm)(6,500rpm)

The engine is started and a load with the specified torque (10 kgfm) and the
specified speed (6,500 rpm) are applied.

/Result

The rivet (rivet and cushioning plate) is damaged.
