The Blue Beast clutch has been getting a tad heavy for a while and now it's starting to make a very light grating sound when it's cold in neutral.
I saw the writing on the wall ... and it said "You need a friziona nuova
I've enlisted the help of the semi-retired Matey Mechanic.. who really doesn't like doing clutches but I've offered to give him a hand..
and I bought a new clutch slave cylinder since the original 15yo and 110,000 miles original is probably a bit tired by now...
I tried to find a LUK clutch since it's probably a good combination of price vs. quality... but the fella who had..
..the cheapest one I found (£85 delivered) ... now tells me it's on back-order from LUK and no sign of when it might arrive..
Any road up.. while I'm waiting I had a look around in case I have to cancel and get an alternative. Other LUKs are on sale at nearer £100.. (apart from a fella on eBay at £85)... but I also saw Quinton Hazell clutches at £84 quid delivered (near enough the same price as the LUK) so my questione is: which is the better one to have?
Failing that, if anyone knoe of where I can get a "quality" clutch at the same sort of money, then that would be a good tip, in case everyone lets me down and the fellas who have them "in stock" actually mean "we'll order it for you"..
I only fancy a Valeo or Sachs (you never knoe
), LUK, Borg & Beck, or something that I've heard of... not the ultimately most cheapest one I can get hold of..
