id use it .
It's good to keep busy.
I found a new old stock clutch plate that has the correct splines, but its slightly bigger than the original one on the engine. This is the same diameter as the clutch cover, I don't see why I can't use it, I'm trying to pennies everywhere. I'll clean up the old cover and the flywheel face. If anyone can see a reason why this won't work please shout.

Plate on left is original, plate on right is bigger but sits perfectly on clutch cover. If this works it will be a good saving.
Had some bits arrive, pair of SU carbs, Edis4 module, spigot Bush.
