Clutch help

When I started to take my clutch to bits I did not mark it. Now I have all the bits off the bike I cannot even find the factory marks to line it up. Anyone have any clues as to what I should be looking for? or can I just fling it back together?

Also discovered that the clutch actaution rod is broken at the engine end ;-((

Many thanks

I think that they are only marked if the parts are enough out of balance to require "indexing" to get the entire assembly in balance. Mine were not marked either. Just put it back together.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

Thank you

David

Many thanks for the reply - that is good enough for me. Will replace the main seal while I wait for a new brass bushing.

Look close and don't use aggressive cleaners on the parts otherwise the factory index markings will be gone. I have done this job way to many times.
The Germans mark all parts.

Good Luck!

No - this means that I have finally finished doing things to the house and I am now allowed to work on my bike. Still have to fit new seals to the 2nd hand gearbox. Plenty of things to keep me busy.
