Commercial Vehicle Clutches

Located in Paris, TN; our North American subsidiary is the home of the internationally recognized and premium quality LipeTM brand of clutches.

Setco Automotive (N.A.) Inc. designs, manufactures and sells Lipe ™ clutches to the North American market. These are ceramic, pull-type clutches in standard 15.5” and 14” sizes. The “direct-pressure” technology that Lipe employs ensures minimal driveline hop and smooth engagement. The clutch is installed piece-by-piece which eliminates the need for a clutch jack. The adjustment can be performed by one person without bumping the starter. We are the only company to offer parts and labor as warranty in the industry. Our tech support is manned by an expert diesel technician who will walk you through our easy installation and adjustment procedure.
