mk1 clutch release bearing and carrier

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

having spent a long time restoring and modifying my Mk1 ive decided i'd like to get away from the old cortina gearbox and so fitted a close ratio 2000E box. but i still used the old sprung clutch cover but bedcause the engine is now producing approx 145bhp the clutch is slipping under full throttle.  So i fitted  a diaphram clutch cover.

The issue i have is that a diaphram cover is not as deep as a spring cover so the release bearing is too far away to operate properly.

Anyone out there ever had the same issues and been able to rectify it.

 thank you in advance

I had this with a 1760 711M in my GT - put the Lotus Elan bearing carrier on & it was OK - slightly bigger housing on the nose. Burton's did them.
