There is a hook on the clutch pedal to keep the plates apart when not in use, they are very prone to sticking. Hook the pedal down and run the engine to get it hot, you may well find then that the plates will free.

My clutch plates were fine despite the vehicle being left outside under a tarpaulin for over a year, but I've been told that a suitable lever through the bellhousing inspection access works wonders if needed.

Thanks Andy,Β 

How's the Abbot coming along Andy?

It, the Stolly and the 432 have just moved to their new barn so hopefully I'll be back to working on them again.
