Yanmar SD50 Clutch Replacement-What Parts Are Needed???

We are anticipating the replacement of the cone clutch in our stb Yanmar SD 50 transmission as one of the alternatives to solve the cone clutch slipping problem. In addition we will make the necessary adjustments to the gear selector and make sure that the end play is correct on the cluch shaft as has been suggested.

We will keep the existing cone clutch and re-lap it and keep it as a spare. The work will be done by myself and a mechanic down in Georgetown, Exumas. As parts are not readily available there can anyone tell us exactly which parts we will need to bring with us to Georgetown to install a new cone clutch so we can get this sucker back sailing safely.

We have the full parts list for the SD 50, the exploded view drawings and all the part numbers but we have not been able to figure out just what parts we should order to complete the job of replacing the cone clutch. Can anyone provide us the infomation. The sail drive has about 600 hours on it at this time. Thanks for your help.
