So, we’ve received the engine back for 1044 from the engine builders, used at the customers request. We asked for them to supply a clutch with the engine, an easy task for a Ford engine specialist right? Original clutch went with the engine.
Fast forward 7 months (original build time 6-8 weeks) and the clutch supplied is incorrect. Too short by around 3/4”, and incorrect spline size. No problem I thought, we’ve a GT40 continuation here with a RBT ZF box that needs a clutch. That’ll be the same won’t it? No it’s not!
I’ve now said I’ll source the clutch. Can someone point me in the right direction of who to use? Supplied clutch was a McLeod, which I was happy with the quality of. I’m just unsure of what exactly is needed, if they supply one to suit the spline size on the gearbox.
Final spanner in the works is they’ve supplied a flywheel, balanced with the new engine. The original clutch cover doesn’t fit the flywheel!
Any suggestions for a reputable supplier would be great!
