Oops! Forgot a step

So, sharp-minded readers (ADV?) will note that with the clutch carrier off and before the flywheel comes off.... there will be a clutch (plate), clutch spring, and pressure plate...

Finally: for once, something is GOOD! Matter of fact, now I find out why the clutch pull is relatively hard on this ole girl... The friction disk (clutch plate) has mucho meato left on it, and the pressure plate is dusty but other wise good: give it a quick deglazing (emery cloth!), and it will be good to go. The pleasant surprise is in researching the clutch stuff: the pictures look like the "sport clutch" with extra rivets etc, the Fichtel and Sachs unit. Yahoo... added value. Hot stuff!
