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.
