Nuts

PostPost by: "kandmpc" » Sat Sep 09, 2006 10:14 am

I pulled my +2 engine to investigate the clutch failure that occured
during the 30 seconds I was standing at traffic lights a couple of
weeks ago and found the cause to be a 10mm nut jammed between the
clutch housing and the spring fingers preventing the clutch from
properly engaging. The nut must have been in the bellhousing from the
time I changed the clutch 4 years ago and score marks show where it
has been dragged around at times. When I was sat at the lights with
the clutch depressed the nut must have found its way into its final
resting place. Needless to say I will be watching my nuts carefully
when I re-assemble.
Now what were those jobs I had meant to do if the engine was ever out,
guess I'll remember after it is back in.
Thanks again to those who responded to my original post.

There has got to be a joke in there somewhere.
