Here is a couple of pictures showing the multiple disc clutch in the bell housing and the difference in the shafts.

When you get it sorted out be sure to keep the rest of us 28ers informed too

I have a multi disc setup and have it apart for a cleanup as I was having trouble moving from rev or 1st to neutral.
Hadn’t been apart for 40+ yrs so it was well worth a look.
The flywheel is grooved where the center 3 plates run but the rest is good, the centre hub was very dirty/ dusty where the steels run so a good clean up and I’m thinking it should be okay as the fibres are in great nick also.
I don’t have a lot of adjustment left on the pedal linkage so was looking for worn plates or something like that.
I have the gearbox on a bench and I assembled the clutch to the input shaft, connected up the pedal to see how it looked. I set the pedal with a minimal amount of clearance on the throw out bearing and when I leaned on the pedal,I noticed the input shaft moved forward a 16th or so. Can anyone tell me what the endplay should be on the input shaft?
That and a small amount of play in the throw out fork pin is using up quite a bit of adjustment.

Can anyone tell me if there is a procedure to line up the multi plate clutch assembly when fitting the gearbox /clutch back into the flywheel?
Thanks for any help.

For Pooch the English RHD single disc bell housing has the round pedals these are grooved on the pedal face . The multidisc also has round pedals but no grooves . I would think the RHD bell housings should be the same in OZ . I have not seen oval pedals on a RHD bell housing here in UK .

Barrelnose if the discs are lined up properly first,that whole assembly slides in a lot easier than you would think.I use 3 chainsaw files laid in the grooves,with a hose clamp around them when backing off the compression tool.I have never once had the fight I anticipated rassling things into place.

Thanks for the reply, Iíll give that a go.
Just that fact the fibre plate id is larger that the inner hub, they can easily not be centred.
Cheers again for the idea.

fyi
the easiest way to tell if the clutch is multi disk without doing any other research is.
look at the top inspection plate on the bellhousing. if it is louvered it will be a single disc, if it has no louvers it will be a multi disc.

Thanks Keith True, I did it your way and it worked out great, I lightly loaded up the spring and as the fibre rings are slightly larger than the outer steel case I centred them off that and then loaded the spring and did her up.
Perfect, thanks again.
