And now onto replacing the clutch in my Westy. Ordered a Luk clutch kit so gotta get that in before heading out to Maupin in June
I have a spare good Luk clutch in NaranjaWesty's underseat locker. It will need an engine drop soon, because it is beginning to stick (pilot bearing, poor thing). Maybe we can do a twin clutch replacement set to beer and music.

When do you want to do it ? In your Seattle visit time?

I had to install the old generator after this brand new Bosch one died a stinky death on the freeway the other night. Changed out to a new regulator too...but it gave me a chance to clean up the engine bay and install the new rebuilt PICT-3 carb I got from Ken.
