Hey Gang. Wanting to invest in the Roger Parent linkage for my '69 Monza 140/4. I've heard it's a great set up, and to go with the '65 version and get rid of those choke lock outs.

Proper clutch fork install

So putting things back together and I'm second guessing myself on the clutch fork. 1. Do you completely compress the spring and slide it threw, on the back of the bearing??? OR 2. Do the spring tabs go on the outside of the back of the bearing??? Hope i'm explaining well enough for someone to unders...

Re: oil leak from bell housing

Would the crank seal spacer be part# C5311 for Clarks?? Also I don't see the sleeve available. Only for the pulley end, not the bell housing end.
Thanks

Re: oil leak from bell housing

Thank you all for the tips. Yes leaking from the weep hole. and also yes a new viton seal. No I did not use grease. was unaware that that was necessary. So if I use the spacer sound I get a new seal as well?? would anyone recommend NOT using a viton?? Ugh guess I'm off to pull this powertrain AGAIN.

So did some research in the old Clark's catalog and found that yes '65s have thier own 140 emblems, and '66--'69s have the one with the 2 raised checked flags. So I bought the right one...
