Hmmmm.... One of those clutches that gets dizzy and doesn't like heights?  ;) ;D

Spellcheck is no doubt to blame. I'm sure Terry meant Verto clutch

It is why the arm is short and the slave is mounted closer to the ground. :)

Hi Cheezle
 
Mazy used to have a verto clutch, which we swapped out for a lightened flywheel & pressure plate. There is a different bracket for the slave cylinder and the slave cylinder is bolted to that bracket. That is why the clutch arm is shorter.

The slave cylinder is also different to the standard one, so you have to get the right one. The best thing about the verto clutch is that it is self adjusting.

Thanks for the feed back I will get a photo as I think im going to need help in this area ,I take it if the clutch is self adjusting that maybe why there isn't any adjusting nuts on the thread.
The bracket and slave for these are they easy enough to get ,Im going googling now I have a name
Cheers

Hi,

the nuts on the big thread are not there for adjusting, they are there to stop things going to far if something breaks inside.

Are you sure it is a verto clucth?  Here is a nice picture that shows the difference, https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=90&t=1502840

I got the bracket/used & a new slave cylinder from Minis Plus, a number of years ago, hope that helps.
