    Picked this up the other day. It's almost all there but needs TLC. Restoration starts soon.

    Clutch case is pretty much junk. It's corroded thru at the water pump and it's been fixed by the kick start.

    HVA is about 400 bucks shipped. I'll ask phil and see what he has. The one I just bought isn't terrible. A little corrosion at the water pump. It's a newer case than mine tho. It has 7 mounting screws and mine is 6. The kick stop is a little different too.

    later model for the bigger clutches, would be aluminium im guessing. if yours isn't badly corroded, there has been some good results with cleaning and painting with two pack to help seal the pump chamber.

    two pac is a hard paint which uses a catalyst to set it off. jb weld is chemical "metal" you mix together and form into shape. it goes very hard. can drill tap machine etc
    is often used to patch these cases when they corrode through.
