    Met up with Ed yesterday to pick up the rear diff etc. Very pleased with all the parts I got, and Ed is a top guy.

    Nice to meet and chat Ed. Thanks.

    flywheel and clutch gone to the engine buyer (couldnt be arsed trying to get it off in the end
    it was used when I fitted it so dont imagine there was too much life in it the way I drive!!

    I started stripping the engine down last night, ended up having to drill two of the bolts off for the pressure plate as they were rounded off lol

    the clutch plate has very little life left in it so I wouldn't see the point in fitting it to last a couple thousand miles, I will get pics up later for you Ed as rerequested

    oh, and nice to meet you Ed :)

    nice one cheers
    suspect the spanner monkey who fitted it may have been a bit heavy handed!

    it lasted well!!
