I'm pleased with the repair work I've done on this tinware, saved myself some of the budget and saved an original part.
yes cheaper to replace it now, than to pull the engine outThat clutch plate is going to need machining, I’d have thought replacing the clutch completely would have been a better option?
Too much pitting and rust weakened springs.
in the meantime, my Morris Minor 1000 pickup needs a bit of TLC, The local car paint supplier does air cans with my particular code of paint.

very handy as the load bed get's a knock here and there and I krust any emerging rust spots, they turn matt black.

Cellulose paint is dead easy to use, especially from a can, but always wear a mask.

yes I may do just that, love to save it, but it could cause gnashing of teeth further down the line, not the easiest engine to get at when it's in is it.yes cheaper to replace it now, than to pull the engine out
alos when you painted it, the paint may A cause it to go out of balance and B melt when the clutch heats up and cause the plates to slip
its a consumable after all
We might be at crossed purposes
