Title: clutch servo replacement kit?
Post by: cisco3609 on March 20, 2007, 03:33:28 PM
I have looked every where for a replacement kit and every place has told me the manufacturer closed down back east. Anybody know where I can purchase one. :(

Hiya Cisco,

There's a complete unit which is supposed to be a good one over on e-Bay..............

Cisco,
        Tried this mob?

http://www.bugcity.com/cgi-bin/WebStore/indexNEW.cgi/mi=yes/srchcd=113142055RK

Or Hoffman-speedster in germany? Use google to find their site, it's available in English.

There's a Karmman Ghia place in the US that had them advertised as well. Can't remember the site's name.

Or go to the ebay auction Mike has listed and go for it.

59 US for a piece of kit that was 29 two years ago is a bit rich. www.thesamba.com classifieds usually has a few complete units as well.

Hiya Sean,

Ha!  The last time I rebuilt a clutch servo, the kit cost $14 US.  Yeeps!  I wonder if these things are going the way of the late lamented throwout bearing?

Hiya Cisco,

This just in from Joe Langlois at eVW............  he says that eVW is awaiting a shipment of servo repair kits right now.  I'm guessing from that information, that the servo kits are still being made.  In any event, you might want to check with Joe at eVW.
