so how the f**k can ford order the correct flywheel, correct pressureplate, yet order a clutch with the incorrect amount of splines?
LOL

turns out Ford parts have the STOCK clutch and also the heavy duty clutch, as having a a*** spindle. (input shaft)
where in fact XR8s have fine spindles. its a part number error!
so the aftermarket, and the factory clutch WONT fit.

gahh.
anyways they are calling up bulk manufacturers, including Texaustralia (or whatever its called) for a replacement clutch

so the FG will be at ford until at least Wednesday = the 9th day at Ford for a replacement clutch. FFS
