Gearbox, Clutch and Propshaft

Clutch and Gearbox Clutch Master Cylinder I will replace the master and reservoir seen here with a new unit. Since the clutch master and the brake master share the same housing and pedal box, information about those components is addressed under the brake servo and hydraulics post at this link: http://valvechatter.us/?cat=615 Bracket for Flexible Clutch Hose […]

Gearbox and Overdrive Storage

Gearbox and Overdrive

Have not been able to do much work on the Jag recently, but I did build a nice crate to store the original gearbox and overdrive. They were a greasy mess so it took a couple of evenings to clean them up before mounting in the box. I will have these components rebuilt before reinstalling […]
