cant remove the clutch plate. I can loosen the flywheel but that wont help me.

what I can do is either drill out the rivets holding the clutch plate "fingers" or cut some of the fingers off where the puller bolts is goes

I would see if you can slip the fingers around with a drift and a hammer. They may have slipped.

its been a while since i removed my clutch, and i cant think how it all goes together, if you undid the clucth cover bolts(removeing the pressure) then you would be able to spin the clucth plate, re align and tighten up to then be able to pull the flywheel.

nope bolted from the inside by bolts. the only options is if the finger ring has slipped and it will move back hit it. or cut away the fingers covering the holes if it was made incorrectly and then fitted with no concern.

Well thats interesting, as said you can try drifting the fingers round, but it looks like they need to go a fair way, I think the body hass been drilled/manufactured wrong. if you check the link below theres a pic of the spring that might help you visulize how its constructed. I think you'll need to resort to drilling off the 9 rivets that hold the spring so you can pull it, the rivits are fairlly soft so will drill ok, just centr punch them first and use an 8mm drill

Thank you for the picture. Looking at that picture it does not look like drifting the fingers round will work.

I will try anyway. Also undoing the 6 bolts to take the pressure off
