whilst this is aimed at TR the parts are all the same family heres buckeyes notes on clutches  its  worth a read if you need a dowel bolt rimmers sell a supposed HD version https://www.bucke

In my experience, yes. Check you still have anti-rattle 'button' and spring fitted.  Mine was missing and fitting one made a lot of difference. https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-GRID008679 - 11242

Pete

The ring gear, taken off with a bit of heat, flywheel let to cool. Heated ring gear and it slipped on. Then left overnight.

Anoying used my last exhaust gasket, will i get away with some firegum joiner as the gasket is still stuck to the manifold.

Will still be imobile as just put the order in for the stainless water pipe that runs under the manifold with chriswitter .

Just looked back at the photo's. The ring gear was already pushed forward when nigel had it, i should have noticed. Lesson learned, and the punishment is to redo. So at least i did not push it forward when bolting the starter on. Why it was only just on we shall hopefully never know. Nigel i am still glad i got it 👍

Interesting thread never thought starter ring could/would move on flywheel.

when I replaced daughters Spit starter ring I waited till the wife went out, flywheel in the freezer for an hour, and starter ring in the oven at 200 plus for 1/2hr the flywheel onto concrete patio and dropped hot starter ring on it just fell into place no assistance read and immediately locked in place.

Never had one either, never changed one before. Did think about freezing the flywheel to aid but no need, as you found it fell on, in position. You do need make sure you put it the right way round.

Anyone else intrigued what the after market rocker switch below the gearstick's for?  Original rear window heater pull switch died/fitted as a replacement?  Electric fan over-ride?

If you know let me know, i have not got a clue. It is connected but what it does i don't  know. Maybe an ejector seat!
