Hi.

I made a sandwich of several thicknesses of aluminium plate, bit of 8mm 6, 5, 3, 2, bolted them together and turned them the lathe.

Trial and error fitting omitting various thicknesses til I got it to work. If I remember it was third time lucky.

This was a Mondeo slave to a Getrag box/bell housing to a 907 Lotus clutch/flywheel.

I worry about the amount left for wear in the clutch plate. It seems to be about the thickness of the friction material, but the cover fingers move 3-4times that. When I next have the gearbox out I shall make a "dummy" worn plate, and see how that works out (dummy plate likely to be a number of washers etc taped to the flywheel to mimic a worn plate)

I used the setup from Rally Design, what I was not best pleased about is that they don't sell the spacers for their kit. Only Burtons seem to have them. Great.
