Comments about FF1600 Hydraulic Release Bearing Kit, Hewland Mk9:
A very nice kit for single plate racing clutches installed on FF or S2 'vintage' cars using MK-8/9 boxes. It bolted up neatly and met all clearances. I doubt it has enough free play to be used in a dual plate application without modification to the mounting ring. I did drill a drain hole in the mounting ring as a precaution if the gear box seal leaked. This drain would keep any leaked oil from being fed out of the end of the assembly and into the pressure plate. I also felt no need for the stiff spring inside the dust boot. All in all, nice kit, well presented and priced. The perfect part to remove the issues of the original VW monkey motion assembly and avoid machining adapters and figuring out which annular to use. Thank you for the perfect package!
Service and delivery comments:
Always prompt delivery to both my West & East coast shops. Items are sensibly packaged and customer service is never a concern. In the many years of ordering parts for my customers, only one or two understandable mistakes have been made, but they are always quickly and politely remidied and compensated. Thank you for running a great and proper business!
