Sharing some useful info regarding my experience with the BP kit.  I bought it as I found an absolute bargain on Amazon, got delivered looked spot on, same as OEM spec kit.  Fitted it not thinking too much about it, first startup of the car pressed clutch only to hear this:



Not good!! Thinking I had damaged it trying to get the gearbox and transfer on at the same time,  bought an endoscope to see what was going on



Looked like something was cracked, so dropped the engine expecting the worst, but only to find nothing wrong with the disc or cover

Slightly bemused of what the noise could be I took a closer look then noticed this

A gouge out of the casing, popped the clutch cover in and saw the edges were catching on it to the point a chunk had already been carved out.  



Advice from Mr B and Ducie54 took the grinder to the casing and clutch cover, also help of a hammer to bend the 3 tabs over more before shaping with the grinder.

The tabs that I hammered back, gave more clearance just doing that!

Couldn't get the angle to show how much gap there is now, but its around 3mm so plenty

This vid shows the casing ground to create a lot more clearance

Hope this helps someone else before fitting a BP clutch or even after if you develop a grinding noise!

Top post mate,

I always assumed replacement parts are size for size, but just goes to show you have to check everything.

I don't look at pattern oem clutch in enough detail spot something like that, goes to show you really do need compare and check stuff in great detail.
Those clutches are Nippon Clutch Co units, never used one so interesting how good it is . Gave you a rep as good info and could save some hassle and will encourage us all check stuff well ...
