I have a Merc 230 4 (1973) and I am starting to pick up a sometimes violent shake when pulling off in 1st gear.

We have checked the engine mounts and they look ok..

My next guess is the clutch is worn, but if the clutch is worn down does anyone know where we can get a new clutch (I have checked all the spares places and even the agents but no one seems to be able to get hold of a clutch) or dimensions for the clutch so that we can get it relined here locally in South Africa.

Or is here any other suggestions on what could be wrong with the old bird..

Thanks Francois

We took the gear box out and looked at the clutch. The clutch was worn and the pressure plate was not looking too good.. but we fortunately found a replacement clutch and fitted it.. The slave cylinder was also leaking oil so we are now in process of putting new seals in to the slave cylinder..

The flex discs all look in good shape...

Thanks guys
