    Default DS - CRC Rebuild Kit

    Has anyone here used an after-market kit to rebuild the clutch re-engagement control (CRC) of a bvh DS?

    My car is a carb car. I bought a rebuild kit and in addition to four springs, a ball bearing and a gasket, it has six O rings:

    • Two big ones go on the caps that are held in place with spring clips/ 'C' clips
    • One medium sized one goes on the adjuster with the slotted end.
    • Two other medium ones are made into oval shapes and go on the flat plate sandwiched between the CRC and the hydraulic pipe.
    • But what about the sixth, small one?

    I looked on the internet for clues. Franzose sell a kit with three o rings - presumably first three listed above.
    Dirk Sassens sells a carb car kit with five o rings but a kit for injection cars with six?

    Have i got the right kit? Whats the difference between the kits for carb and i.e.? Is it the springs? The ball bearing?

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks

    Might be oring on main shaft but big job to fit

    Thanks. I did think about that but, as you say, that would not be an easy job. I also wondered whether it fitted on the nozzle of the LHM return pipe - but that has a copper washer

    Also, I'm struggling to see why Dirk Sassens would sell a ket for injected cars with six 'o' rings, whereas the carb car kit only has five? I'm wondering if that distinction is down to the alternative mounting point for a CRC on an injection car - but even then, the basic mechanics are the same? Maybe the relocation means a pipe has a join needing an 'O' ring?

    Ultimately, and whatever the reason, I'm wondering whether I have the injection car kit by mistake and, if so, is there any difference in the parts other than that 'O' ring - such as the springs and sizes of the other five 'O' rings?
