G'day Melvyn,
                   I can't see anything else on the pic. Don't know for sure, I've only ever had a 4 spring on mine. hope the pic helps you.
Cheers.

I reckon they are 6 spring clutch bits with a loose scroll, looks complete but I am not expert.
The four spring these combined in one part, I thought some one had put an old washer in for a laugh until told otherwise

I will dig my dead clutch out over the next few days, I stripped the puller  in the adaptor so had to weld it together to remove it, has queer double row ball bearing arrangement ( SRM make a more solid replacement I believe ). And have a look for you.

Mine looked expensively dead so I fitted a 4 spring clutch with many adventures on the way,

Steve

Dear Melvyn
I'm delighted to read you have found your missing clutch component, also pleased to see the five years at University studying photography didn't go to waste either..!!!..XXX *smile*

Hello Ted how nice to see you on this forum & glad you have purchased a quality steed at last.

As far as the missing part im very confused & as for the photography Im afraid my Kodak 35 (circa 1938 )has finally given up the ghost & had to rely on my Daughters mobile phone to try & take a picture I promise to keep practicing.

Kind Regards
Melv

Hello Ted,
Melvyn's comments thoroughly endorsed - with the sole caveat that as a fellow AMC person too, I reckon you already had a 'quality steed' - and now you have a nice workhorse to go with it. I do envy you your new toy, and if I ever said plungers were for clearing sinks, I take it back.
