Re: Switching 10" Spring Clutch to 9.5" Diaphragm

Bad luck Rory :sad: Whilst you are making your modifications, it was suggested to me by Angus ( and I have taken the advice!) to fit an ‘upgraded’ release bearing. I am sure like me, you dread the thought of a bearing failure and the enormous work it would entail... Denis Welch Motorsport, part numb...
