How I converted a wet clutch basket for use with a FCC Dry Clutch (Part 2)

Here are some photos while dismantling the wet clutch basket. The rivets were drilled as to remove the retainer plate. The rubber cushions seem to be in very good condition, they will become handy later...

Here is the wet clutch basket after removing the cushions and the primary gear.

Now back to the dry clutch basket. The retainer plate was removed and a real mess was revealed. The cushions were highly damaged and this must have helped for causing the cracks on the basket.

Here you can better see one of the cranks on the basket. It goes deep and very close to the mounting points for the rubber cushions and the rivets.

The two clutch baskets, side by side. The modification looks pretty straightforward and to use the wet basket on a dry clutch, only a simple lathe boring operation is needed.
