Morning all, I have searched but can't find the answer to my specific question. I have a 68 D14/4 and are putting it back together after an engine strip down. My question relates to the clutch plates, mine has 4 which i understand is correct, one of the plates has a couple of segments missing from one side so i am going to replace them all while i have it apart but the bottom plate looks like all of the segments have been removed from one side, is this correct or should all 4 plates have segments on both sides ? Excuse me if this is a stupid question but this is the first Bantam that I have worked on so its a learning curve for me.

Regards Paul

Hi Paul.
       Those plates should have segments both sides. I have known segments to come off before. Must be quite a common problem.

Thanks Mike, i just thought that it was strange that they were all missing from the one side of the lower plate. I have also noticed that the side that they are missing from is also worn about 2mm in all around the edge. I have ordered some new ones so at least now i have got 4 spares to make locking tools with 🙂
