lol...i dont always get 34mpg. It was a combination of things that meed up the pressure plate, my 5X10 trailer didnt help it and hauling 8 datsun transmissions 9 cylinder heads 4 L series block and some various other datsun parts didnt help it either but what done it in was my lead toe and thinking a long straight stretch of road was my personal launch pad and a big smooky burn out kfinally killed it

Haha...I can clearly see you doing that while testing ahem (cough, cough) your LZ's power! I would've done the same. Now we all know what happened to the 4:11......lol

I will not be able to make it and i am very bummed out about it. I finally got around to taking my transmission out today and found a shattered clutch disc and cant find just a clutch disc at any local parts store and i am not sure if i can get my flywheel turned tommrow. If i do find my parts it would be saturday before i could get there

Knotty I have a like new SACHS clutch the 225mm truck one.  I had it on my l20 for around 1,000 miles before I took it out.  It looks new.
