Found out we had two problems after the crank replacement on the R60.

1. The clutch push rod had actually broken

2. Because the replacement (repro) crank was slightly different dimensions to the original - it meant the flywheel had to move forward about 1.5mm.

This resulted in the clutch push rod being too short to correctly disengage the clutch. So after a small spacer was machined for the 2nd hand push rod - all was forgiven (well for the time being).

Just a reminder to check this when doing major engine work.

My '59 R50 had a broken

My '59 R50 had a broken pushrod also, but still had the felt. Don't know if it was actually still working correctly as it was a project when I got it.
