Hmm... Wouldn't have thought about glueing it on, but sounds quicker and easier thn making up brakets. Ok, I'll get a suitable gle and get them on asap.

Never come apart if ya get it wrong mind, or if you have a bump you will be replacing the whole rear end.

Apparently if you do need to get it apart, then you just need to slide a razor blade between the 2 surfaces, a right bitch to do so im informed tho...?

Default Clutch problem...

ok, ive got the clutch cable in, however, i am not able to push the pedal in, the clutch arm seems to be stuck,its not hitting the chassis, theres enough room for it, it has about 3 cm of play in in, then it doesn't move at all, i dont want to apply excessive force and break it... the clutch hasnt been used for about 6 months, what could be the reasons for it not moving, the only thing i could think of is i nay have hit the lever on something while the engine/box wasn't in.. any suggestions??

Is the leaver free from obstructions?

Sounds like the release bearing may be stuck on the input shaft.
