Aligning up the clutch plate, disc and flywheel while bolting it on can be a pain when you only have two hands. I heard of this tip somewhere and it worked very well indeed.

I piece of rod with tape wrapped around it centers everything while you bolt on the clutch to the flywheel. Use the gearbox imput shaft as a template and you end up with this.

Dont forget to put the clutch disk in the right way with the flywheel stamped side facing the flywheel.

 

 

Gearbox Slave Cylinder Fitting
