From my usual dealer. I was lucky, he had one in stock. Possibly left over from when I'd asked him to do a soak for me? Or is that too cynical?
Excellent write up.
I will be doing this soon I hope.
1) I assume you ordered your gasket ahead of time. Most likely not a dealer item.
Don't think I actually said that, maybe someone else's write-up? However I did clean it as well as all the metal plates and surfaces (in my case, very little congealed gunk). No need to oil any of the metal surfaces since plenty of oil on all the friction surfaces.
2) You said you cleaned and wiped the back pressure plate. Did you then oil it before installing the rest of the friction plates?
Apart from what dripped off or was left on my fingers.
3) I assume you kept the oil on the friction plates when reinstalling?
I had some motorcycle specific 10-40 (or some such) left over from my Trophy days. So long as it's oil intended for an internal combustion engine, of about the right grade (5 anything up to anything 50) and has no friction modifiers, it really doesn't matter. I have no doubt the clutch will work satisfactorily with almost any grade, and It will be diluted into the main engine oil eventually anyway.
4) What kind of oil was that you used?
Anyone commenting further about the oil type will cause this to become an Oil Thread, so please don't, or it'll be destined for NEPRT.
You'd be dumb not to ask if you don't know.
Sorry for the dumb questions.
