Ok. I just have some 243 sitting here, so I'll use that.

Parts ordered, including a new clutch cover as that doesn't look good on mine anymore.

Ok. The shifter looks ok and I only experienced good shifts so far, so I'm not sure if that is needed.

Btw. someone mentioned loctite. Nice idea. Just 243?

Just make sure it's not stud lock as opposed to thread lock

No, it's thread lock. I'll be fine then. ;)

Starting reassembly, though I still need to get myself a new nut and a new seal. And to get the old bl**dy seal off...

Against my own feelings, I had to use a Stanley blade on some parts. Make sure the bits can't get into the sump. Ended up having to put the clutch cover in the parts cleaner to get all the bits out of the webs, but I think your fitting a replacement? Looking good though

I will be fitting a used replacement clutch cover as mine has some salt damage. The trouble is that that gasket is completely 'glued' on. :( So I need to work that off. That is going to be a challenge. I was actually thinking of cutting a sharp edge onto an old credit card to see if that helps. The engine side is pretty much clean, fortunately.

I finally got the parts in and found the time to put the thing together again. It all seems to work great...  :015:

Seems.

Unfortunately, when I wanted to take it out for a test drive it turned out it had drained the battery. :138: Oh well, it is on the charger now and stashed away as we are going into a large building project the coming weeks.

Glad to hear it's back together. Had a similar issue to you, but not battery. I found the relocated 30A fuse extension I made for the starter solenoid had been getting hot, and had melted around one of the new fuse holder contacts. Am now waiting on a bolt in fuse assembly to have another go....
