>The handbook recommends that if you have issues in this area then you can use a little fine grinding paste to remove any surface imperfections, or some very fine emery.
>No problem with doing that, but I cant see why it hapenned in the first place as the crank and clutch tapers looked in good shape
I don't see any mention of using engineers blue to check the tapers are actually engaging fully - all round and all along? How would the Mk.1 eyeball "look" at two tapers engaging? The less they are in fact, the less use the assembly's going to be?
