Default th400 direct clutch question

How many froctions and steels go in the drum? The drum i have has a beveled steel at the bottom and 4 steels and 4 frictions after it then the pressure plate.I know clearance should be .050-.070.Is this correct?

most times five frictions work just fine. No wavy steels. How much power are you going to throw at it?

Bevelled steel at the bottom sounds like a late model setup with the low cut alum piston. You don't use that stuff in a performance trans.
