    Default Mi16 clutch problems

    I've just replaced the Mi16 S1 clutch in my 309 after oil leakage from the front gearbox seal had caused a slight amount of slippage from time to time. Now the new clutch doesn't disengage properly, works fine starting off once you have it in gear but the disc spins meaning you have to start the car in gear and gear changes have to be rev matched. I'm wondering if the oil has soaked into the cast iron flywheel, causing sticking of the disc to it? Any other ideas? The flywheel was very thoroughly cleaned, had been machined recently so that was not done.

    Maybe the friction plate is tight on the shaft splines.

    Or the thrust bearing has not seated properly - sitting too far forward.

    Fixed, had the box in and out today and just replaced everything in the clutch. Don't know what it was but the distance between the face that bolts to the flywheel to the friction surface was less on the faulty one than the replacement. Maybe it was designed for a flywheel with no step? Would I be game enough to try it on a flat face flywheel is the question?
    The faulty one had no brand, the replacement is the Borg and Beck that was advertised on Ebay by EAI.
