    Agree about Gluckstein. I call him Brian Beige !
    Keep the shiny side up!

    LOL! I worked closely with him. That was a while ago! Small world! Looked at your site. Very nice work. We have done a lot of work with Gren Weiss over the years though nothing recent. We get the odd job in the oakville area.

    Hi there. Really sorry I didn't respond to your message. I did not get a notice. I work for a company called Cando Woodworking. We are located north of the city though most of our work is in Toronto. Ive been doing this for 28 years now. All custom high end work. Keeps it interesting.

    Hey there,

    I may be able to assist. We'll see how my week progresses. Some key things to dropping the clutch assembly as a whole:
    -make sure the clamp sleeve is pushed as far back along the torque tube as it can go so that the intermediate shaft doesn't get caught up on the sleeve
    -make the shims as illustrated in the WSM, this reduces the surface area the pressure plate clamping force is applied to
    -the top pivot point of the clutch release lever (2nd class lever, lets call the top pivot point the fulcrum) may need to be pried on a little to release it from it's bushing, it's accessible easily from a rectangular inspection hole near the top of the upper bellhousing slightly offset to the drivers side
    -once you get all the pressure plate hex head bolts removed (remove in star pattern to reduce chances of warpage) you should not be able to remove the shims because all the pressure plate spring tension will be on those shims

    Aluminum alloys typically have 7% silicon in them. The alloy our block top half has , has been supersaturated to about 14%.Then the block was bored to size and lapped with an acidic silicon mix that will only remove the aluminum and leaves the very hard silicon standing proud. This eliminates sleeving. The cast iron rings then run on the silicon surface.
    You could contact Porsche head office in TO or call sunnen the supplier of hones and silicon lapping compound. If you do it yourself wear a respirator mask as it causes cancer.
