    So we are asking exactly the SAME thing Joe, what Pressure does this AMC Jeep pressure Plate actually have? Said in one relatively short sentence.

      I got a call back from AMS this morning. The AMS 01-505 pressure plate has 12 springs and is 1800 lbs. so its nearly identical to the R1/R2 part. I hope to get it installed in the next week. I'll report back on how it works.

        That sounds like it would be a good H.D. Replacement for Larks/Hawks and a perfect replacement for Jet Thrust and Avanti Engines. The only thing we have not yet determined is if the Clutch Disc. Hub is a 10 Spline like most, but since I think most older Jeeps had Borg Warner transmissions it SHOULD be good.

        Thanks a lot for the 01-505 Part Number, most of us with 289's or "faster" 259's should be able to order one if yours works good. Definitely Machine the Flywheel and get a New Stude. Throw out Brg.

        UPDATE: I just enlarged their Pic and counted 10 Splines!

            Nine springs is going to be very near Std. = 1456 Lbs.
            That CA1588 is a Borg & Beck Number, why not research it?

            So you have not ordered this one YET?

              CA-1588 is a 10.5 inch B & B style, listed only for H.D. 1962-64 Chevrolet applications, 2235 lbs. Probably a little strong for casual everyday street driving.
              This information from my 1983 Rayloc remanufactured clutch assembly catalog - lots of great info in it!

                  I ended up getting the AMS 01-505 clutch and pressure plate installed this summer. I was able to put a few hundred miles on it before I put it away for the winter.

                  I can report that its a direct bolt in replacement. The clutch works great and the pedal pressure is similar to a standard stock clutch. The adjustment was a little long, but I switched to an Avanti rod which is longer.

                    I know this is an old thread, but I called AMS and the AMS 10-505 is no longer available. The tech guy said the recommended replacement would be AMS 01-026A. This is a diaphragm type pressure plate 2100 #. Do not know if the throwout bearing will work. A search indicates it is available at various retailers.
