I see we have someone flogging these on ebay - anyone tried them or make any comments?

Possibly a forum member 🤔🤔🤔. Good luck to the seller though, there is a sizeable UK market for them.

You say in the listing that the 400 has 2 types. I have only found one type in a 400 and in your picture "B" is the 500/550 type  ;)

Thats interesting, both baskets came from 400 engines, and oddjob posted a pic of a 550 one and it was completely different to both. Do you have any pictures of 500 ones? Also do the 500 baskets fit the 400?

If those ones in the link are 500 ones, they are the same as oddjobs 550 ones, but aren't the same as the one on my ebay photo

Your ad says there are two types of 400 cush rubbers, there is only one type, which I'm very familiar with. The 400 cush rubbers will not fit the 500 or 550 and vice versa as they are different clutch baskets. If I remember correctly, the 500 and 550 rubbers are the same, even though the baskets are different.

Well both those rubbers came from baskets from running 400 engines, and they aren't 500 or 550 ones

OK, so one of the 400 baskets had the wrong cush rubbers fitted, there is definitely only one type for a 400.

The rest of the basket is completely identical, but the aluminium posts are a different dimension and the holes in the gear are smaller, and it was still factory rivetted. If the 400 rubbers fitted it wouldn't be a problem.

Could it have been a 350 clutch basket?
