[TR] How much for a clutch job

For whatever it might be worth, the "Triumph Repair Time Schedule"
lists 6.30 hours for "Clutch assembly and/or plate. replace"! That is
for the TR4A, but other TRs should be comparable. We of the Herald
persuasion are rather more fortunate, as it only takes 3.80 hours for
the same operation in a Herald. It's 5.50 hours for a Spitfire or GT6,
only 2.00 hours on the FWD 1300, and 5.80 hours on the big 2000 sedan!
*Mrs Irrelevant: Oh, is it a jet?
*Man: Well, no ... It's not so much of a jet, it's more your, er,
Triumph Herald engine with wings.

So, how many hours for a clutch job and how much for the parts? $1100
for a shop charging, what? $60-$75 and hour?, doesn't seem excessive.B
Granted, you or I might do it for 1/2 that, but we're stuck in the 50's
and don't have the overhead.B
