Re: New clutch

John Wrote: Clutch can be changed after a few simple mods, without pulling engine. The first thing will be ( and you will not have to do it again in the future) is to loosen the rear assembly to give you some room to wiggle out the drive-shaft, after disconnecting from back of gear box.

Re: Nüral

Hello Andrew,
They're made by Federal Mogul, or Federal Mogul owns the company. Nothing wrong with them; I use them all the time when rebuilding V12 engines and have no negative issues. Google Nüral and you will get plenty of hits.

Re: Mirror position

Hello Sven,
Do you want a Manual Mirror, or the type that has remote control via cables? If the latter, I can provide a template for marking hole positions and a LH Mirror.
