Manley Ford used to have a good setup with a lightened flywheel and a Cortina/Lotus pressure plate. He has a more competition style one now. Probably worth a shout. https://www.freewebs.com/manley776/apps/photos/

The repair kit only seems to be the two rubber seals, so not sure that is the way forward
I ran across some new studs that were either shorter, screwed into the head further or something which left no room for a washer. Original manifold and clamps. Make sure you have enough thread for the full depth of the nut. George
I placed two crossing braces across each door opening, using 1/2" conduit flattened on the ends. I used one of the the windshield cowl holes for one brace and an existing mount screw for the other (both on the forward edges of the door frame). I drilled a pilot hole and inserted a wood screw on each of the two ends on the rear edges of the door frame. I noticed...
