Cookeville, TN, (June 8, 2020) – Complete your new American Powertrain overdrive conversion with a high performance Centerforce® clutch now available at American Powertrain.

For more than 25 years Centerforce has been a leader in clutch innovation and quality. To ensure the highest level of quality, every clutch design that Centerforce offers is run through a gauntlet of testing procedures. They continually monitor and evaluate clutch-holding capacity by utilizing specific friction materials and accurate pressure plate clamp-load measurements. Clutch breakaway torque readings are further verified through their specially built clutch testing equipment.

Centerforce offers a wide variety of clutches for a broad array of applications for any kind of driving. And they’re always searching for new ways to marry engine and driveline through smart innovation. Choose a clutch for the way you intend to drive most of the time.

“When upgrading to a new American Powertrain transmission package a new clutch is always needed,” says Director of Marketing Matt Graves. “Invariably, our customers would ask if we carry Centerforce because they have such a reputation for quality and longevity in the industry. It was just a make sense deal for both of us to begin carrying the line.”
