Just realised this has little to do with the clutch as per the heading
.. But rather than break the string... I pulled the oil pump, Initially separating at the crank case.. & I am glad I did. top left oil way was healthily returning oil onto my garage floor but bottom right was as dry as a chip
Good job I've been premixing.. or I guess I would have had a seizure to cope with (the initial reason for her 30 year lay up).. So for interest value which oilway feeds which pair of mains.. I am wondering if I might have found the reason for her initial seizure.. When I got the silk, the pump was dissassembled from its housing but mostly together, I gave the assembly a good cleaning (after the o'ring 'witnesses' had given me their hint as to how it all works).. but cowardice prevented me stripping it to piston level.. I guess I will have to now as one piston is clearly not delivering.. I will keep you informed as to the result of my endeavor..
Any hints would 'as ever' be much appreciated.
