5VZ-FE R150F

Our Heavy Duty Clutch Kits are a huge step above stock clutches, and unlike other aftermarket clutches, are designed for the Rock Crawler. Throughout the 1980s, Marlin had used LuK and BorgWarner Clutches with much displeasure. Both kits seemed to loose their "new clutch" feel, and seemed to wear out sooner than stock. Marlin wanted a clutch kit that grabbed better and lasted longer, but without wearing out his legs over a long weekend trail.

What he did was gather multiple kits from various manufactures and combined components to build the best clutch kit available. Today we no longer have to combine kits as we now have them assembled from the manufacture exactly to Marlin's specifications. The end result is a clutch that offers excellent longevity, smooth pedal pressure for those long days on the trail, and a high torque rating for a sure engagement every time.

All kits feature new parts. Each Kit Includes:
  • Heavy Duty 1,200 ft-lb Pressure Plate
  • 33% higher load rating than stock
  • Heavy Duty Metallic Clutch Disc
  • Japanese Release Bearing
  • Pilot Bearing
  • Alignment Tool

SECO Clutch Disc
  • We stand by SECO Quality
  • Co-designed in Japan with AISIN
  • Preferred over AISIN disks because...
    • AISIN uses plastic spring retainers
    • AISIN uses single springs
  • SECO features a Robust Double-Spring Design
  • Heavy duty spring design tames heavy shocks or loads
  • Excellent heat and wear resistance
  • Circumferential grooves & nickel coated splines
  • Proudly using SECO disks for 10+ years

AISIN Clutch Cover
  • We like AISIN Clutch Covers
  • Heat treated diaphragm spring
  • Hot-setting process reduces load fatigue
  • Ribbed spring improves clutch-release
  • Features DST (Diaphragm Spring Turnover) for improved clutch-release

It's this unique combination of parts that makes the Marlin Crawler Rock Crawling Clutch Kit stand out from the rest!

This Heavy Duty kit features a 1,200 ft-lb pressure plate, which is a step up from the stock clutch, which is rated 900 ft-lb.

Special Clutch Kit Notes for 3.4-liter applications

As with all our products, proper installation is assumed by the customer. It is your responsibility to install our clutch components properly into your application. You should always follow Toyota's Factory Service Manual that matches your exact application when installing our clutch kit.

Our Clutch Kit is famous due to our own specific parts and assembly. No other kit on the market is designed for Rock Crawling like our Heavy Duty kits are. Because we have instructed manufactures to follow Marlin's own specification that he has perfected since the 1980s, components are mixed and matched per each kit creating a unique experience based on our design. Therefore, regardless if the clutch disk supplied in your kit is marked flywheel side ("FW SIDE"), you MUST follow Toyota's installation directions for your own application and use the proper disk orientation specific to your application.

For example, if our disk we sent to you for your 3.4-liter 5VZ-FE Tacoma/4Runner/T100/Tundra is marked as "FW SIDE", you must follow the Factory Specifications which places the raised flange side of the disk into your flywheel regardless of this marking. The disk can be installed backwards (facing away from the flywheel) and the truck can be driven this way. But because the release bearing will push the pressure plate fingers into the incorrectly installed and backward-facing raised flange of the disk, it will cause the disk to undergo forward lateral flex which will greatly accelerate disk wear resulting in premature disk failure. Marlin Crawler cannot be held responsible for improper installation of clutch components.
