As I have posted previously the clutch on my MG is stuck due to it having stood unused with the last owner for 10 years. I don't have a maintenance manual yet and I'm not going to start taking things apart until I have one,but how easy is access to the clutch on the MG? and if I have to take it out what is involved?

Thanks,

Matt.

The clutch access is located underneath the gas tank.  The easiest way is probably to remove the hood, fuel tank, and fuel tank support.  Maybe one of the other guys has a better way, but I'm not optimistic.  I don't remember if there's a panel on the underside.

Here's a picture looking forward.  The panel is right in front of the steering levers.

Doug is correct the forward hatch under the fuel tank is you access point for the rubber rag joint, intermediate shaft and then the clutch and pressure plate...

Access is tight with the tank in place so pulling it is your best option.

The only access cover on the underside is a round cleanout plate in the middle of the oil pan - the transmission is a big solid chuck of cast iron down there!

One of mine is missing the hatch in question so I can snap a few pics in there if you are interested...

Douglas and Matt,many thanks for your replies. I have finally bought a reprint Maintenance Manual so hopefully should have the clutch sorted out soon!.
