I need to get confirmation but assuming it is the 180mm version I can get a kit for around £55 (Sterling).  Postage might be pricey though - I will check it out.

David was kind enough to send me a head gasket. I owe him something for it. Just arrived a few days ago.

But, I made a huge mistake and let my 17 year old son drive the car. I've been gentle on the clutch, but he burned it up in about 10 minutes. Sigh, never ends. I'll be looking for a clutch disk, pressure plate, and release bearing now. I think I better contact MatraMagic.

Once again, if anyone has sources for these parts, I would be grateful. In the US, we have no source for any Matra parts.

Thanks David, let me know what I owe you for the gasket.

Unfortunately after going to considerable effort to send a head gasket in one piece to the "good old US of A" at the turn of the year I am still waiting for payment. Sad  I hope you pay for the parts for your your plane in reasonable time....

Us "poor" Europeans make do with cars most of the time but we do try to pay our dues especially to people who go out of their way to help others!

If this has been an oversight then get a new system.  If you are not going to pay me anything please let me know so that I can write it off as a "bad" debt!  I can live with the disappointment, after all you gave us George Bush! Grin

Hi Lewisman,

A little bit before you, I exchanged several emails with this member. I dig out the head gasket and asked for the postage money . At that moment, the mail exchange stopped...

Thankfully it was not an expensive mistake.  Still annoying though. Angry
