I have been rebuilding a 50L (1967) but run into a problem with the clutch. I have replaced all cables, a new 3 plate clutch kit, new brass plunger and pressure plate. however when I tighten up the clutch cable ( no free play and loading the return spring) the clutch doesn't seem to engage at all? I can tighten the cable further but still nothing happens and the lever gets harder to pull...
when the cable is pulled the lever operates fine and I have checked the plunger moves with the lever with the cover off.
what is going on? is the brass plunger too short or have I set the lever in the cover in the wrong place?
the bike runs fine and slips in and out of the gears fine if you roll it along.
it's driving me mad!
