I don't remember any problems with the heavy duty clutch components. The cover and disc are still carried and are being used by a number of MGVR members. I don't recommend the cover for street use a

I did run side exhaust on my Vintage Race MGB and V6 powered GT for a while. The factory ran side exhaust on at least one of the DBL licence MGB race cars, but probably without muffler. There is eno

Fixing the clutch is not vital. There is no practical reason for you to be working on the car, when there is other work to be done around the house. Working on the car is your release from the press
