After sitting around today, healing up from a nasty tumble, skating, playing tag with the grandchildren, yesterday, I got out to the shop a wee bit and buttoned up some more stuff around the transmission.

That's not the kind of update that we want, Mac.
Sending healing vibes your way.

Thanks Torchie.
The hurtin' couldn't have been too bad if it took a half a day of sitting around and some muscle cream to get me out into the shop and under the hoist again.
Those dang Grandchildren, skating around on the dugout, squealing with delight, as agile as cats, enticing their poor old Grandfather out there, to participate in their games.

We ain't as young as we used to be Grandpa! I do the same thing sometimes, and pay for it later! We gotta learn there's some things we just can't do or do as well as we used too........

Lumps and ice go together like... ice and lumps.

I hope you fully recover (with no lingering effects) and you solve your clutch dilemma...

Doc, I think the new pressure plate will fix two things; the mismatched finger height causing chattering and the worn out pivot pins making a jingling sound unless I was riding the pedal.
I am paranoid with driveline angles now so I'm checking things out in this picture. There is supposed to be a red laser dot at the one inch mark on the tape measure, right at the bottom, but it doesn't show up. If you're worried about the transmission 'plum string' being a half an inch off plum, well, the front of the motor one is a half inch off plum too. Anyhow, I think I have the two laser beams, [the one going forward and the one going backwards], parallel.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
