Alex, Im not a bad guy  ;)

 

to control the 'slip' there of the intermediate plate  this may help.. it is not exact the Lotus-partnumber -but you can measure the studs and make your choice:

 

ask for resalers..

(starlock is actually a known princip/product in mechanical components..)

Have you tried AP? In the past they supplied the kit that comprised the three pins and star washers.

that's why I have written *ask for resaler* / merchants  ..and posted the bakfin.com link

 

 

..but not sure how much you can copy in wrong way from such a simple product nowadays ..steel-quality and temperature processing would influence the characteristic, but mostly it will still be a clamp-spring there.

Got my 3 little starlock washers from Amazon. Couple of quid for 10 so have enough for a couple more clutch changes! For note, they are 5mm washers.

 

Cleaned all the dust and rubbish from the bellhousing last night and found one of these starlock washers buried in the copious amount of dust in there. When I took the clutch to pieces, there was only one of these still fitted, hence the root cause of my clutch issues.

 

Steve.
