    just as i thoguht id got the car finished

    all i needed was to sort out some big ass brakes but no blew my clutch today, car still runs ok but when you put power down it just revs for ages before i finally starts to crip and i only just took a golf gti turbo which is a bit of a bummer.

    anyone recomend a certain type of clutch to go for.

    oh and also found a wining coming from my engine which increases when the engine is reved but cant figure out what it is as courtenay have only just changed the cam belt.

    That'll be the hidden supercharger !!!

    Maybe the belts just need slight adjustment

    Have you actually tested it, you know what they say about assumption.

    it would still charge the battery.... doesn't mean the tension is correct

    They are rubbish, avoid at all costs, just re done original clutches.
