Is this the right Cambiocorsa clutch for a coupe?
Has anyone done a write-up on the whole process of how to do one of these f1/duo select/cambiocorsa clutches on either a maserati quatroporte/coupe style setup; or the ferrari f360/355/430 style.
From what i can see on this online parts catalog at:
Ferrari Parts, Ferrari Accessories, and Ferrari Performance Products - Ricambi America, Inc.
It shows this image:
I see what seems to look somewhat close to a typical clutch disk (1) pre-installed onto a pressure plate and a separate flywheel (3) with two ring gears on it. However it is labeled double clutch so i can see how the eccentric input shaft and the outer input shaft are engaged and subsequently disengaged on that one, i can even see what appears to be an intermediate friction surface. but what is it that the thrust/throw-out bearing is pushing on? is it a push pull dry engagement action?
I thought this was all a hydraulic wet style system sort of like a really big conventional automatic transmission style clutch pack.
I see on the top left corner that it really appears single clutch. Man this is very confusing.
Is there anyone here who's actually done this and doesn't own a shop and would like to share the step by step, or someone who owns a shop and wouldn't mind sharing the step by step. I completely understand why any shops would hold back on posting a step by step.
I usually do twin disk setups on high hp applications to replace a single clutch conventional style but both friction surfaces on both clutches get equal forces applied to them. I know how these Cambio Corsa basically operate, I would just like to learn how they exactly work, and of course to be able to do this job on my car on my own in the future if i decide to buy one. I'd love a Coupe Gransport.

I remembered this post from the past. Eddie (our local SoCal independent specialist) gave the basic steps breakdown in changing the clutch pak. I do a lot of DIY stuff on my bimmer, some DIY on maser, but this particular job goes to Eddie when it's due.

I only read part of your post and then went crossed eyed.
It is a twin disc clutch with an intermediate plate, the input shaft engages both disc simultaneously. When the pressure plate is pressed upon (push type) the two disc are freed between the flywheel, intermediate and pressure plate.
