Sorry if this is the wrong area to post this. I'm replacing the clutch on my 1974 R90/6 and the bill is adding up fast. Does anyone have a clutch centering tool that I could purchase from you or even borrow it for a fee. I don't see myself doing this job again for a very long time.
Thanks

While it might make the job a bit easier, it's not really needed. I replaced the entire clutch on my /7 a number of years ago. I simply eyeballed the location of the clutch plate to get it in the center of the housing and so that I could see the point where the clutch rod touch the pressure plate. I then slid the transmission into place as far as it would go. With forward pressure on the transmission, I actuated the clutch which released pressure on the clutch disk. A few attempts at that and the transmission slid home.

Thanks

I'll give it a try without the tool. If it doesn't work I can always shell out the $30.
