Elan Plus 2 130/5 Clutch

PostPost by: Alastair.hazell » Wed Apr 17, 2024 7:40 pm

I have owned my 1974 Plus 2 130/5 for 45 years and am putting it back on the road after 20 years in bits with everything now recommissioned or new.

One crucial part lost in the rebuild of the gearbox is the clutch release arm pivot. I have found one for the standard 4 speed gearbox but this does not fit.

Does anyone have one/know where I can find one? I need to get the car running for my daughter's wedding!

Looking in the wiki it would appear that you require a "mounting, fulcrum pin" to allow you to use the 4 speed pivot pin.

Vincereynard has posted an interesting picture of it here :- viewtopic.php?t=39331&p=274366 (2/3rds of the way down the page).
