Well as you all know me, johnny david & spike fitted my new gearbox last weekend ready for the 25th meet. I did about 200 miles in the car & the clutch let go on me on thursday night & had to get recoverd home... Pissed off was an understatement! Anyway i was determined to get it fixed ready for 25th!
So i rang bob & did a 400 mile round trip yesterday to get a clutch... & spike came down to mine today & helped me fit it & get the car back on the road... Cant thank him enough, life saver Smile

Anyway i had a 6 paddle clutch in the car that had plenty of life left in it so didnt bother changing it when we fitted the box last weekend, so left it alone... Turns out that 1 of the spings had collapsed in the friction plate, and couldnt select gears, so yep we had to take box of again! :/

So just a big thanks to you spike for saving the day & helping me out Smile life saver!

Also bob for having a clutch for me... Cheers you big gay bear Wink

& not to forget johnny & david for last weekend! Wink

Amaizing how these cars & forum bring such a good bunch of people & freinds together & help each other out Smile

Glad it's all sorted gaz and your now coming to the 25th

What was the flywheel like?

It's a 4 puk ap clutch with rps pressure plate so it will be a little grabby even when it's bedded in but will hold a lot of power & torque Wink

Yep all good Smile Took it on an 80 mile drive toight over to a car meet in derby & she ran faultlessly cheers

Yeh its snatchy lol Shocked Flywheel was fine mate, no scoring.

With it being a 4 paddle, will it judder & shake the engine & make it feel like its trying to rip it out the car setting off in1st if you don't get the revs right???

If I give it no revs setting off in 1st & let clutch out slowly then it seems fine or if I rev it over 2000rpm its also fine... But if I set off any lower rpm than that ten it judders engine & feels like it wants to rip it out of the car Shocked Is that normal if you don't get revs right?

Sometimes my Paddle judders like that but never really looked into it that specifically as to what rpm I am taking off at. Thats partly due to rubbish white dials and no rev counter lol

Sounds about right for a 4 puk, best for road is 6 puk or segmented disc (all spring discs) such as the CC 8pad segmented. prefer helix or CC over ap .
Least you on the road, clutch may improve a little with bit of use & you probably adapt but they can be a real pain if do a lot of town/city driving/manoeuvring .
