Well after 3 hours yesterday removing the bonnet, rad, and bits and bobs I was joined by my best mate Andy today who has been a mechanic for 30 plus years, we cracked on, removing the wheels. Drive shafts, then moved onto the removing the gearbox, not easy but we managed it with some jiggly pokey, swapped the main seal and the one above, clutch, release bearing and then put it all back together. I should of ordered a new radiotor as its looking a little but warn out but that's for the future, coolant added and shes running like a honey, anyone considering doing it let me know and ill share the tips... Cheers all it's beer time

I have taken off the bonnet and radiator from my 1982 gtl in readiness for a good clean up but having seen your post and offer I would be grateful for any tips on the clutch replacement. Mine has a long travel on the pedal which makes me think it may be up for renewal.
Thanks
Rob
