76’ midget 1500. While addressing some rust issues on the lower portions of the two triangle supports, I’m going to pull the motor in the spring to get better access. While the motor is out, I’d be foolish not to replace the clutch as I know nothing about it’s past. Any recommendations as to anything else I should consider? Motor mounts look good at the moment.

At that age the car should have the engine mounts replaced, makes sense while you are at it and costs very little.

Agree with Richard, easy to replace motor mounts when the engine is removed. They will need it even if they look good.

I went with a Borg & Beck clutch kit I got on ebay. You can get cheaper kits but I have always read good things about Borg & Beck.

How's your engine running? Is it leaking oil? Are you burning oil? If you are all good with these 3 questions then I would do as the others suggest. If you are having problems with any of the questions it is a good time to take care of those things while the engine is out.

Jere ,
Engine has good compression and oil pressure. It doesn’t burn any oil. Will pick up a new set of motor mounts. winking smiley

There are a few bushings in the clutch linkage inside the bell housing you should maybe replace. They are cheap and easy to do while you're in there.
