    Could be but I’d have thought if that were the case the pump would not achieve correct pressure on the rail and the engine would run poorly or not at all.

    So am I, which is why I prefer Titanium over Carbon these days.

    Cheers Chris, you've almost made up my mind.
    Funny thing is I find guitar's similar to Cobras in a way. When they're in the right shade of blue I find it very hard to refuse them.

    Few mm is way too much. Sounds like you’ve only either got the wrong clutch cover(s) or the wrong flywheel. Possibly one which has had a new hole pattern (badly) machined on to it.
