The insides are the same but make sure you get the right diff-case for the 710 because the number of teeth is different between the two.

I recommend tighening your spring to 1.5 to start and if you need more go to 1.7 or 1.8.

This clutch set-up is very good and consistent.

when you mean tightening the spring to 1.5 or 1.7/1.8, is this the distance in mm from the tip of flywheel clutchnut to the pre-load adjusting nut or is this number of turns?

TIA...

Usually that is quoted as the distance between the tip of the flywheel nut to the pre-load adjusting nut.

That is the amount of thread that should be showing. Yes from nut, not turns.

Other question, is the wear of the steel pinion combo significant less compared to the alu pinions. And is the increased weight of the pinion a big disadvantage?

The steel ones last forever. No problem with the weight.
