Steve, is it an internal or external measurement you need?
I've a clutch and gearbox sat in the garage, do I need to remove the clutch from the gearbox and measure somewhere inside?

Hi Geoff.....its the clutch cover that bolts to the flywheel......if you have one loose not bolted down its the measurement from the edge that touches the flywheel to the face that contacts the release bearing....so if you lay it on a flat surface and measure the depth if that makes sense...thanks..Steve
