    Since the PD170 clutch is the same size just a slightly different design pressure plate and DMF i would guess that it is rated at 300 lb same as the PD130/150/160 clutch.

    Sorry mate, I can't offer an answer to your question but would be interested to know how much torque you had going through your old 130 PD?
