Pretty good deal I reckon, would be able to flog the complete EA 5 speed conversion for 500.

No you need the EA clutch.

Ring "Clutch Industries", for a supplier, they do a good price.

You will also need a NEW spigot bearing, which you tap into the back of the crank. About $15 from most auto stores. The rest of the bits you can just pinch off the EA.
