    G'day Phil, I made one of these a few years ago and it worked a treat, but I made it from mild steel so it deformed after a couple of uses. I have since made one from better steel. I can give yáll...

    Prep takes the most time. Blasting, sanding, cleaning and masking up. But the the painting is easy the part. Good quality etch epoxy primer and then undercoat. Ready for top coat of 2k tomorrow....

    Only took two hours to top coat. I painted it in the driveway instead of in front of the spray booth because it's a bit of less dust from all my woodwork but I had the booth on while painting for a...

    G'day Rob, I'm not really sure what you are after but I have this used kit available for you if it will work. Don't forget that the 1.4 and 1.3 engines had different sized clutches but I'm not too...

    A 180mm clutch from a 1.4 can be fitted to your R12 flywheel after the large outer rim area is removed on a lathe, and would also require redrilling and tapping for the pressure plate bolts and some...

    Hi :) If the rear main weeps a bit of oil it should not get on the clutch faces. The flywheel is designed to prevent that happening. It collects any oil and is drilled to throw it out the back. All...

    Sunroof, Also check for free-play of the clutch fork not just the cable. It's possible you have an odd throw out bearing that doesn't belong in there.

    A couple of things come to mind. The first and most common issue is to ensure the clutch cable is not too tight. At rest the lead swagged end should have 2-3mm play. Any tighter and it will continue...

    A standard 10 clutch is barely up to the task with a slightly warm 10 engine when you give it some welly, so a used clutch+water leak+oil leak = slipping clutch when you are being pushed along by a...

    I would think an R10 clutch would be a little small for an R12 motor, but the only time I have had a clutch slip in an R12 is when I have had a gearbox input shaft leak.

    Hi Sunroof :) I don't have 'the' answer. But my memory of lots of years ago, tells me that there were several types of clutches and sizes fitted. They were all a bit 'fragile' if thrashed. Those...
