Is it a fact that the clutch used in 1939-42 six will fit a 52 Champion also? TY

Possibly! Assuming it is the Champion Six, not the Commander Six.
My books indicate pressure plate for '39/'40 Champion is part number 197129. Pressure plate for '52 is 197129.
Driven plate for '39/'40 Champion is part number 196089; for '52 is 531687 without overdrive and 531688 with OD.

Carl and Herman Thoms are the answer guys for this. They just don't do the internet.

I'm needing a clutch in the not to distant future and found a nice rebuilt set up for a 39 Champion. The fella said he really thought it would fit my 52 Champion six. I was trying to make sure before buying something I can't use.
