Urgent help please, racing thrust bearing?

Postby notax » Tue Apr 30, 2013 9:33 am

After a long delay Zippy is due out in action again this weekend, but during a test drive I noticed the thrust bearing on the Clutch Master twin plate racing clutch has got very noisy. The company is based in the US and can't get a part to me for several weeks. It is apparently a cone type bearing, does anyone know where I can get one? Standard BMW ones wont fit. Cheers. Chris

Thanks Peter, it is made by a US firm called Clutch Master. There is a UK distributor but it will take two weeks to arrive and our event is on Saturday! Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.

Chris try these people

http://www.superclutch.com/

They are not Clutch Master agents but may be able to help

Only gotcha is they only do mail order but but they have been very helpful in the past, if they can help I'm sure they will send it overnight for tomorrow

Good Luck, enjoy Down Ampney
