Where can I get a good clutch alignment tool without paying silly shipping prices ?

I need a clutch alignment tool for '93 turbo. I would prefer using one that's designed for the turbo model rather than a universal as I'm installing a Carbonetic twin plate clutch.

I managed to find one specifically for the MR2 Turbo on RockAuto for 9.24 delivered to Ireland.

I've never used one unless the kit comes with it.

The whole kit came with a lightened flywheel and twin plate clutch, but no alignment tool.

just line it up with whatever you have to hand, get your finger in there to check it's bang on. then torque up the nuts. sorted.

That's basically what I did with my wife's old Ford Ka.

I read that it's a bit more tricky with a twin plate. Anyway I ordered the clutch alignment tool. I will let you know how I get on.

Nice [thumleft]
I usually end up wrapping a drill bit with masking tape to the right thickness for my twin plate. May have to invest in one of these to make life a bit easier next time round!
