Hi Michael,
                  The postwar clutch discs were 4.75" I.D. x 6.75" O.D. x 1/8" thick - giving a total thickness of 5/16" for the 2 discs + the steel plate.

When you order the discs, go for a woven material similar to the original 'Ferodo'. The early type asbestos free linings that were made of a grey composition material gave off a fine dust that collected on the guide pins through the flywheel, preventing the clutch from freeing properly.

  Regards,
                Eddie.
