clutch disc recommendations?

After losing most of the year to other things I'm finally going to replace the clutch on the 48. I have 2 clutch discs to choose from, one from Fort Wayne and then an NOS 48. Any advice on choices?

Re: oil price.

The biggest problem with these prices is that it puts US domestic companies out of business. Low prices may seem great but I don't want to go back to being dependent on middle east oil. If the middle...

Re: A good quality voltage regulator??

I bought a NOS one from Barnfind08 for my 48 here on the barn. I had it tested when having the generator rebuilt. The shop that tested it said it was just fine.
