I removed the sprint on the pushrod before removing the preassure plate, maybe you are not supposed to but thats how i did it and i guess thats why they did not come out together.


Why the lock washer broke yes thats a good question, no idea...

It is not uncommon for those lock washer tabs to break off if they have been reused and bent over a couple of times... When doing a big engine rebuild project those little parts often fly under the radar... It is only upon reassembly where you end up saying "why didn't I order a new one of these?" And rather than face a delay, end up reusing the old part...

Mada,
You work fast...be sure to read the workshop manual on clutch reassembly.

There is a correct orientation of the plates and pressure plate that is specified, also replace the seal on the crankshaft in the clutch case for safety.

Workshop manual is here in pdf.:

Removed the clutch hub today and main bearings looked fine and were also of the newer type.
Noticed some cracks in one of the oil pump gears so that will be replaced as well. Luckily most parts cost less than $10 each so this time i'll get away with $50 in parts only.
Many thanks for all replies!
