Early clutch release bearing
#1
    Started cleaning up all the clutch bits for the AllAlloyCup.
All seems OK but the early type release bearing may not be quite right ?
There’s a fair bit of slackness in the part that the levers bear on? It spins ok but
I can move it a few mm?

Is this normal or should it spin quietly like a wheel, or engine bearing?.
It also seems hard to find a replacement?
Only one supplier lists it but at £125!

I’m new to Austin’s so please pardon my ingnorance

The four speed release bearing will work on the three speed clutch and gearbox if you use the four speed style clutch levers. Does save having to find a decent finger basket/ cut 3 new slots in an existing basket.

Was over there today -- Jamie says his internet connection is down so maybe best to give him a call.
