Subject: [Healeys] Clutch question
I think I know the answer to this, but wanted to know what the list thought.
A friend is restoring a BN2 for a customer, but this would apply to about
any car. He is about ready to mate the gearbox and rebuilt engine. He has
a new clutch disk, but was thinking of using the original pressure plate.
The Healey has about 70,00 miles and the pressure plate shows little sign of
wear and no discoloration from overheating and is not warped. Should he
also replace the pressure plate as a matter of fact? Is an original better
material than new repros?
