Any tips on changing the right engine mount? The car is on jack stands w/ right front wheel removed. Remove the clutch lever for easier access or just bloody the knuckles?

If you've got clear space above the clutch area, eg. no servo etc, I'd probably remove the starter motor and wok to replace the mount.
You've got 3 awkward engine mount bolts to to remove with the wok in place or 2 awkward wok bolts then replace the mount with the wok off.

I've done that one both ways and I find it easier though a little longer to do if the cover is removed.

You need to jack that side of the engine up so I

 

1.remove the Rad

2. loosen but dont take the nuts off the left hand mount

3. undo the top stabiliser arm

4 undo the right hand mounts from the sub frame.

5. Jack the right hand side of the engine up as high as you can without fouling th eexhaust on the body and remove the wok

I've recently had the flywheel off my '72, I didn't remove anything other than the starter motor and fresh air intake duct to get the wok and flywheel off.

Thanks all for tips, hadn’t thought about removing the wok. That is the answer.

1. Recommendations for lube for clutch plunger linkage? Dry graphite?
2. The old clutch plunger has a recess inside the hole on the thrust side to accept the ball of the clutch lever, probably from wearing against the ball end of the lever, hence the question regarding lubrication.

3. The old clutch release bearing was weeping lubricant, am considering using the GRB201EVO bearing from MiniSpares. Opinions?

Thanks
