Corvair Flywheel Rattle turned clutch job.

Uncategorized
 A feint rattle became a monstrous knocking, and thats when I knew it was time to buy a bolted flywheel from Clarks. So out with the powerpack. 
After it was out and I was awaiting parts I removed all the old rubber engine to body seals. Best way I found was to lightly grind all the staples. When the parts arrived I riveted the new seals in. 
 The old clutch was oil covered and was worn through the rivets. Strange though, the car drove fine. The pressure-plate has stress fractures in it and the flywheel was extremely loose.
 Found this beauty while inspecting the transmission for a slight second gear grind. 
Clarks sent the wrong pressure plate and so I’m still waiting. They are making good on it though.
