    Posted: 30 April 2018 at 16:48
Hello, I have a 2006 315 and would like to fit an extra rope clutch on the Port side. Has anyone done this and before I start cutting a hole in the moulded headliner in the heads could you advise on whether there is a backing plate under the existing clutch pad?

Many thanks 
Colin

 Hi Colin
The 2 cleats that i fitted where I assume you want to fit the extra clutches have had the holes drilled & tapped into the aluminium plates. That means that you do not have to touch the head lining
I have a 2003-31 & because I have more than 2 extra control lines I used different cleats so I could swop the lines about. I also added an aluminium plate complete with a cam cleat for the topping lift so if you only wanted to fit a small cleat you could avoid drilling anything

I, like Samuel have added clutches to both sides now. The only advise I would add to Samuel's advise is the have a #1, #2 and #3 taps. The plate is a fair way down and you need the #3- sometimes called a hole tap to save you piecing the headliner

This afternoon I removed 2 of the clutches to change the size of the plate in the bottom to accommodate the thinner dynema halyards which are starting to slip. This is the first time I have done this.
The countersunk machine screws are 35mm * 6mm. I was somewhat concerned that one did not seem to have any " bite" whatsoever & the others only just engaged into the aluminium plate on the last 2-3 turns. I got the impression that most of the gripping power was from the mastic around them.
Tomorrow I will take a 6mm tap to the boat, clean the threads & try some new bolts in the holes to see exactly how much they engage into the aluminium plates- If at all.
I had a similar problem with the pulpit when I found 8mm nuts fitted to 6mm studs with copious amounts of mastic because some operative has been too lazy to tighten the correct nut up in a difficult position. Preferring instead just to push an oversized nut on to the stud.

I had the same problem! In the end I took a piece of thin mousing wire and put a right angle bent in it. By pushing it down the tapped hole you can find the bottom of the metal plate - that will give you the screw length you require!

Finally re fitted the clutches & the bolts i used are 39mm ( i cut them down from 50mm)* 6mm & did not touch the inner lining & they all engaged fully with the metal plate
