Clutch renew

Posted Dec 31st, 2019 at 21:26 by BrianH

The clutch pedal is at the right height now and after slave, master together with clutch plate, spigot bearing, and pressure plate is as good as is has ever been. So pleased. Bill 850 ouch!!

Unusual failure of high mileage Volvo 245. Get a new clutch plate now, gear box out!

Love earth

Going in Winchester yesterday....suddenly power....switched to petrol, nothing.

So it was electrical. Had a spare coil, and a spare amp, but wasn't these. Checked dissy.
