Hi, red,

I have been researching the info for my clutch replacement.
Here is a diagram of the clutch spacing. It may help.

I think there is a reverse lockout that has been known to fail.

Bleeding a clutch system can be a real pain in the ***. I use a tool called the Pheonix injector that will force the fliud threw the system backwards from the slave to the master to push the air out of the system.

This is the best advice ever, one problem, it's my flywheel it's too thick, F1 racing sent me the wrong one.
