1973 R75/5 Rebuild: Installing a New Clutch

I decided to replace the original clutch after inspecting it and measuring the parts. Many were close to, or past, the minimum thickness. You can read about the procedure I used to install the new clutch in this web page:

I ordered the new clutch parts from Tom Cutter at Rubber Chicken Racing Garage who sent me the following:

21 21 1 250 035 Diaphram Spring (Heavy Duty)
21 21 1 251 801 Pressure Plate
21 21 1 236 332 Clutch Plate
