Does anyone know where I can buy just the clutch plate for 23spline 190mm clutch or a part number for a kit?

Legerra engine mounts Crossflow width vs pinto

Posted on February 20, 2015 at 21:49 1 Comment

My little 1300 crossflow sits very low in the engine bay the pully is so low I can't put my fat finger between the chassis and pulley. I'm sure the engine is nose down to which can't be good. Is this legerra built for a pinto?

Great day out :D

Took the 1300 legerra to the autosolo track today after replacing lots of tired parts over the last few weeks I finished 1st in class. So my job list now is driver's side engine mount needs replacing, front upper wishbone bushes, oil change and filter. But it was worth it great Sunday afternoon for £20
