Re: Series 2 clutch

Just beware of release bearing part number.....i have seen both of the ones in my photo above sold under the same part number as James quoted above......so ensure a replacement is the shape you need and do not just rely on the part number you order....Steve

Re: Clutch slave cylinder 'aftermarket' or 'standard'

Hi Layne...you need to look at the service manual re clutch adjustment.....the 1/16in measurement is used when you have an extetnal spring (manual adjust) with no external spring you use the larger measurement 3/4in (auto adjust)...there are 2 sections in the manual covering this....Steve
