Clutch in, gearbox ready to go in

I had some time yesterday, so I bolted the clutch back onto the flywheel, using the 10-spline clutch aligning tool purchased from Moss Motors USA. This was part number 387-250 and retailed for US$4.95, so was a "must have" at that price!

The nut welded to the left-side gearbox mount was missing, so a new one was sourced and welded to the bracket before painting. I believe that many of the bolts and nuts used on the factory assembly of the vehicle had Whitworth threads, which are now almost unobtainable. The closest is UNF, but it is not a match.

If I have time today, I will mount the gearbox.
