[Healeys] New Clutch query

To revert to the problem I've being having with my gearbox not wanting to
reinstall to my new clutch..


Bleeding it made no difference.. It was a forlorn hope as I was sure I'd not
lost any fluid but miracles are always welcome.


The gearbox is on the workshop floor as is the new clutch.


Before removing the new clutch I played around with the AH Spares plastic
alignment tool and my spare shaft. Both went in without any trouble but I
suppose they would have anyhow unless they'd been miles out?? The new clutch
slides onto the shaft in the gearbox just as it should.


See attached file..Seems to me that the old clutch was in pretty good shape
and, with benefit of 20/20 hindsight, one might have left well alone! It's
been in there for 27 years that I know of. There were/are a few
discrepancies between the old and new clutches. See attached. I don't think
these would matter????


Are there any obvious steps that I might have missed? Obvious, but,
seemingly, not to me!


I haven't taken out the flywheel. Didn't see why? It's in; it's
straight/vertical and works.


People state a preference for alignment with a spare shaft rather than the
black plastic tool. I can see that the metal shaft might be somewhat more
precise, but harder to use surely? 


I'm reluctant to reinstall and just repeat the whole sorry process..


Any suggestion?
