I'm replacing the clutch and rear main seal on my '73 R60/5 today. So far it's gone pretty well - one stripped clutch bolt, but I finally got it out. And yes, I blocked the crank!
Here's the problem, once I got the flywheel bolts out, I noticed that the replacment bolts I bought are different:
The old one is on the right, new one on the left. I'm surprised, because I bought these from a great local resource - an airhead guru that really knows his stuff. I've read there were some changes to the flywheel/clutch assembly through the years. Mine has the small spacers between the pressure plate and the pressure ring.
So my question - is there any way I can use the new bolts or do I need to return them for the correct ones?
I was hoping to get this whole job done today, but if I can't, I can't.
Last question - any tips on getting the flywheel off? Seems stuck pretty good, even though the bolts have been removed.
