yep its there i will admit i forgot to put it there the first time but have tried both starters with the dowl and still makes grinding noise.
set back i didnt need, like steve said the r19 and clio both have a skimmed faced style flywheel and could be sold as a L/B flywheel  to fit a 5 which is what i think has been sold to me off this forum.

I should have a clio starter you can see if it fits/works if you like.
Not sure if the clio renix patern is the same as the GTT, but pretty sure the flywheel has different amount of teeth..

yer can try it, but if that dosn't work engine back out and i will get the car painted spoke to matey yesterday, then i can do the sub frame and that already had to take bumper and wings off so i can get the two patches done.

I dont know where to start but the last two weeks have been shit, almost had a fatal crash the other friday car spun out in front of me on the A23 faygat and jumped onto the other side of the main road and had a head on with a van had to cut bloke out of the car, it was 6am in the morning no one about  helped the driver that was trapped and kept him calm, battrey was arking, diesel everywhere really bad didn't work for a couple of days, then the following monday a for sale sign went up on my house i rent, so now i got to find a new house to rent what a shitter and more money as a deposit because my deposit on the house im in at the moment takes 14 days to be reliesed from the deposit scheme so i got to find another 3000 to move in 5 weeks, so the sale of the 5 didnt go anywhere and after having a nice chat with my dad he sorted me some cash to get me back on track, so everything ok and i have brought a new turbo which arriuved today, car gone to have the wiring and welding done then its book ed in for M.O.T 2nd of march so hopefully nothing bad can go wrong just get better  :D

Glenn good luck for MOT matey, if carb is up and down could just be a bit of dirt in your carb Steve said it was full of shite in it could be just some dirt still in it.

Remove the brass screw on side of carb and clean jet up this may help

Yeah it was full of shite, either clean idle jet out or maybe even take it off & blast it out with carb cleaner again..

The 5 passed its M.O.T went straight through, so she's back on the road, cleaned carb again ticks over fine, just got to source a funny clanging sound now again as if something is hitting the blades on the alternator thats the only way i can describe it  :lol:

Good news Glenn,

If the alternator is clanging normally the lower long bolts for the alternator has come loose as the 13mm nut sometimes comes loose and alternator hitting sides. If you need a spare long bolt I have one in my toolbox at home just in case yours has come loose and fallen out

Loving being back in the 5 done 200 miles this weekend, no brake downs. Love the looks you get, went to car boot today and a series 1 rs went past in cowfold and gave a me a flash pulled over in the bike cafe down there and had a chat, soon as the sun comes out you see all the old classics dont matter what make... :)
