    Is the gasket for the brake/clutch side plate one solid gasket or is it cut out in the center?

    I could not find it on any of the supplier catalogs.

  • William Revit20 November 2018

    Sounds like a torque setting issue to me--
    Let me tell you about wheel braces--
    My best mate years ago was spinning some truck wheel nuts off with a wheel brace and when one of the nuts came off the wheel brace hit him on the side of his knee--ouch
    He died in his sleep that night from a blood clot----------impact driver for me

    Be carefull--Safety first

    Something to look for if going full face is the sideways view available Best I could find was an AGV motorcycle helmet; still has all the correct compliance nos but a nice wide window
    My son swears by Bell and won't wear anything else, but I find the side vision a little compromised compared to my AGV helmet

    Sorry it's sealed in plastic but I don't want to open it--we have a small rust problem here as you might have picked up on
    The flywheel and ringgear are all machined out of one piece--this is the pedastol type

  • William Revit20 November 2018

    Pic of the rear of the flywheel,
    Centre hole(bearing) = 35mm
    Crankshaft locating step=83mm
    Bolt pattern=6X12mm x 65mm pcd--evenly spaced with no dowels, they use the bolts as dowels
    Mounting centre section of f/wheel is 9.5mm thick and the bearing is 10mm wide
    Distance from the end flat mounting face of the crank to the clutch friction surface=23.5mm
    Spigot bearing is 35od...

    Mark-
    Best way to choose is-
    Sit the ring on the taper of the gear, and acurately measure the gap between the back of the ring and the synchro teeth on the gear--then try your other ring and remeasure
    The synchro measuring the widest gap is the best one to use-----

    I grew up in southern California, in the foot hills around the Mojave Desert and their fires - absolutely devastating! My wife and I high tailed up to Western Washington State and never looked back.

    I do feel sorry for the people down there, including my wife's cousin and her husband - they lost their home Ventura about 2 years ago and are still trying to jump through all the hoops tryin...

    Tough luck, Bill. Cars seem so insignificant when human life is threatened.

    Lets all hope for happy ending.

    You must have had it set on drill mode that locks up the clutch

    I know of a TC and TD lost in the Redding area fire earlier this summer. An XK 120 and a TD in the Santa Rosa Fire.

    I have family members who live in Paradise which was leveled in the early hours of the Camp Fire now burning in Northern Ca. All whom are among the 900 souls still missing

  • MG ZR 160 FOR SALE

    Hi all

    After 6 years I am looking for a good new home for my beloved MG. She’s an old lady now and needs a lot of work done. She still runs incredibly well for her age. She will need a buyer with money and time and hopefully a love for these dying breed cars. Although she has her problems, she still runs too well to scrap. I don’t see many of this spec anymore so seems such a shame to le...
