Ive got my eye on one but it's described as needing 'adjustment to the clutch' being 'a bit fierce'. What does a shagged/good clutch feel like on one of these as i havnt driven one before. Is clutch replacement an engine out job or can you do it in the car?

Clutch juddler is a common thing which can be cured by using a good quality replacement, making sure the fly wheel is in good condition, replacing worn spiggot bush and making sure the engine and gearbox mountings are good and tight.
If the plate is worn towards its limit then the clutch will bite at the top of the pedal even though the free play on the clutch slave is set to 4mm. To test the free play on the clutch slave look down the top left of the gear box and you will see the slave, pull back the rubber boot a push the arm, it should be set to 4mm play. the clutch adjuster is on the right of the box in similar location to the clutch slave.
