Hi, don't worry I'm wise to that one

It's worth remembering that as soon as its served it's purpose you must cancel cards used in this way so that you can start the process again with the same provider after a short break.

In the end I decided that the clutch is too important to scrimp on in a car thatís used to tow the RIB reasonable distances at times, and of course on slipways.

So I gave the go ahead to the local guys to order branded parts and do the work, particularly as they believe itís only a 4 hour job.

Using pattern parts of, Dual mass Flywheel, 3 piece clutch kit, new slave cylinder, fluids etc, and including the 4hrs labour, the bill should come to £2499.81
Using genuine Mitsubishi parts would have added a lot to that.

I could even have it back before Christmas.

If they stick to their word, as theyíve done in the past, Iíll post their details as a recommendation.

As another great example of Ďourí community Rib.net, Iíd like to thank the people who have offered to lend me cars for a short while.
From very good friends, to people who are just acquaintances, Iíd like to say how grateful I am for the offers, and that theyíve gone a little way to restoring my faith in human nature.

Just out of interest Nasher, why would using the Shogun on a slipway burn or wear the clutch? I just stick my car into Low Ratio and take my foot of the clutch at tickover. She's a bit slow, but never fails to impress me how she climbs, towing my RIB up that crappy little slip that I use.

If it helps at all, I fitted a Land Rover clutch without engine or clutch removal in 8 hours!?!?
New one cost me 90 quid

Just coz it's more than 'normal' driving conditions.
I've only ever used LR for recovery when I've actually been using a gravel or sand beach as a slipway, mind you last time I tried it at Hayling Island both car axles and both trailer axles sunk into the gravel/sand mix and I had to use the rear and centre diff locks as well to get the rig out.

As an update to the clutch story the local garage did put a new DM Flywheel and clutch in for me, but connected up all the electronics to the box wrong so the ECU got confused and didn't want to play.

As a slight silver lining to this story, I did discover a new Independant Mitsubishi dealer in Portsmouth that has all the Mitsubishi diagnostic equipment.
They plugged the car in, jacked it up, and swapped the plugs around all in the space of 10 mins early on Christmas eve morning, and didn't even want to charge me for it as it was only 10 mins.
Needless to say they were £40 better off in cash before I left.

They are good guys that charge £45 per hour, appear to know what they are doing and don't just work on Mitsubishis, but as both are fully trained up Main dealer Mitsubishi mechanics they know Shoguns, Pajeros, Evos very well.

http://www.mitsiart.co.uk/ is their website.

I always use LR on a steepish slip as I always thought that Towing the weight of the RIB up in HR would put unessesary strain on the engine, clutch etc.
