I checked and I have the new rod.
I put the one steel plate that was slightly grooved back to 'first in' position. It hardly creeps now !
Is the first plate to go in meant to have a slight groove in it where it meets the Belviere spring and washer?
I have (hopefully) included some pics of the clutch basket. There is some wear marks from the fibre plates. The pics make it look worse than is in real life.
Can the wear marks be filed out?
PS how do you upload pics?
