today a little bit of imagination and I ended with a home made tacho cup!
I don't know... News soon.
But problem. My friends voted for Magnum 500s, so again I'm stuck between these 2 wheels.
I'll have all time to think. If you like classic scooters Vespa and lambretta, come and be drunk with us all weekend around a lac north Austin !
No, in January I had no tools and not enough guts to play with the gearbox... The guys from the shop told me that it was useless to replace the clutch, that mine was recent and in a very good shape.Did you replace the clutch? If no I would buy a new arm and throughout bearing as they are cheap.
Well....lasting 15 years is a tall order....I am assuming the there is a machine shop in your town that will resurface the stock flywheel....find one that will do the job quickly, take the flywheel off and take it to them...shouldn't cost much. Does the car have a stocker motor...I forgot....if so then just buy a stock clutch and pressure plate along with a new throughout bearing. If the clutch kit doesn't have a short plastic shaft to put into the clutch/pressure plate you will need to buy one...this will align both the pressure plate and clutch when you put it back on your resurfaced flywheel. I'd buy a new clutch fork and check the pivot like was mentioned above. Also check the pilot bushing in the end of the crank to make sure it's not worn out....these are really fun to replace!?#No, in January I had no tools and not enough guts to play with the gearbox...

I believed them then.
So they've just replaced the broken part and that's all and I went away with a fixed clutch system and overhauled gearbox and shaft.
Now I'm mad cause I payed a lot to forget about clutch and tranny problems, I've left my car to the best "specialists" in town and 3 month later here comes the clutch again!
I have no time to spend twice on the same system, that just pisses me off, I have plenty of other things to restaure on this car!
So now I have a few days off, what should I order to get a good clutch working fine for the next 15 years?
pedal is OK, Z-bar is new... So what clutch, what bearing, what support, what upgraded stuff should I look for?
Ok, just buy stock clutch parts and yes, have the stock flywheel surfaced. When you build the 347 you will be using a different flywheel and it will most likely be a different weight.....unless you are going to install the 347 soon just buy stock parts and they will be left with the motor you have in the car now.Actually there's still a worn 302 under the hood but I still plan on building a 347 following the part list that you wrote for me.
I will re-use all clutch parts the day I'll swap.
So if I have to replace parts now they have to be able to handle the future 347.
So what do we have inside?
- a flywheel that has to be machined
- flywheel bolts
- a clutch disc : what would be the good one?
- a pressure plate : same question
- 6 pressure plate bolts
- a pilot bearing ?
- a crank pilot bearing? (these two are the same thing)
- a release bearing?
- a clutch fork
- a fork braket : that's the part that I broke in january. (Is this the pivot that bolts/screws into the bellhousing?)
and I will need an alignment tool.
What would be good buys?
How do I get there?
a friend of mine owns a garage and as actually he doesn't have enough mechanics, I can use one of his lifts !
So what's the sequence?
drop exhaust line, drop shaft, put a plug on the gearbox for the fluid, drop the gearbox... And I'm good?
And what about throwing all these parts away and go to hydraulic?
