    Clicking solved.

    Please excuse the state of the interior, I have wiring everywhere whilst I’m sorting it all out.

    Hi Dan,
    Sounding nice, are you going to keep the car after doing all this work, or sell it on as a MOT'd runner?

    Glad youíve changed your mind Dan. At the speed youíre going I reckon you could offer a service to help finish off a few Novas which are taking ages to complete.

    I need to pull the engine back out, the engine came with the clutch attached which was in better condition so in it went. Trouble is itís missing a part on the pressure plate so needs to come out and be swapped with the original, then it will be able to move under its own power.

    Part in question is like a release bearing, but itís part of the pressure plate and is a separate to the release bearing on the shaft.

    Staying outside above customers cars?

    That's the difference between early and late clutches, the tube on the gearbox that the release bearing runs on is also different, I had to cut mine back, when I fitted the Kennedy clutch. The clutches are interchangeable.
