I have looked to see if this topic has been covered elsewhere but drew a blank.....

I have come across a complete clutch assembly from a B175 in almost unused condition - complete with centre bush, spacer ring, bearings and plates, centre spigot, pushrod, springs etc etc. I am considering fitting it to my D7 ( the D7 clutch has seen better days), and on initial inspection I can see no good reason why it cannot be done but was wondering if anybody had already done this conversion and if there are any show stoppers and/or pitfalls, before I start to make a fool of myself ???

Yes, it will fit. I had a four plate clutch from a D14/4 in my D7 engine, along with the barrel head and carb because the standard one (with cork plates) could easily be provoked into slipping. Sadly, I built the engine so long ago that I can’t remember whether there were any obstacles to overcome in doing it, or whether a mixture of bits were necessary. I’m pretty sure that it was straightforward, I do have vague memories of using the D7’s bronze bush instead of the D14’s bearing - but I’ll confess that I may be getting projects mixed up after thirty+ years.
