Replacing the donor clutch


This week I sourced a new clutch and release bearing mechanism. That is now fitted to the Engine and gearbox housing. The newly painted gearbox is now fixed back onto the engine. All the dismantled Turbo assembly is back on the engine, along with new exhaust manifold gasket and Turbo Exhaust manifold gasket.
During assembly of the exhaust manifold one of the studs snapped off. Bit off a pain, so it was out with stud extractor set, 2mm drills and an hour of labor to remove it. It came out cleanly and no damage was done, thankfully !!
