    Mirage M1 - Original Clutch Set Up

    James the best i can offer is to point you to Ronnie Spains book. Pages 306 and 307. Mirages rebuilt as 1074 and 1075. Suggest you check your photo information on these 2 chassis No's. Also Page 142 lists the gearbox numbers used between 1967-69. Hope this helps. mike
