slater555 wants to know Dino or Syn?
4 or 5 friction disks

I have a 1953 FL when i see clutch pack kits for 1941 to 1984 they include 5 friction disks and 4 steel disks but the description says 1941 to 1964 used 4 friction disks and 3 steel disks. Now I have been told that the old set of 4 friction and 3 steel was the same size as the new 5 friction and 4 steel (about 1.5+ inches). So I am trying to figure out whether I need to use 4 or 5 friction plates. So anyone know the clutch stack height for a 1953 FL or any other useful information. it is kick only, 4 speed, chain primary, dry clutch.
thanks

I have been running 5 f and 4 steel D in my 59 put em in do the adjustment and see how they work!

you might make a stack and measure how thick the new ones are and do the same to the old set up if its close you should be good!
