You need to be careful and not mix up the combinations of clutch cover and release bearings. The earlier covers require a taller release bearing.

Many years back I installed a BJ8 clutch into the BN3 and found that I couldn’t select any gear.


After a lot of hear scratching I figured out that the BJ8 clutch doesn’t stand proud of the flywheel as much as the earlier units. The simple solution was lengthening the slave cylinder pushrod and it all worked perfectly.

Thanks Michael and Perry,

After some investigation today we determined we just couldn’t get enough travel with the current rod length on the slave. We mocked up a longer rod and everything functioned well, so my buddy Greg Wold (who says hi Michael) who was helping me has some spares that he can match up and send to me.
