Just because I don't know

Post  sunnydog on Wed Oct 30, 2013 3:16 pm

I just typed out a fuckin' magnum opus and it spontaneously deleted itself somehow....

Anyway I'm lookin for tips on how to set adjustment on my stock 3 stud harley clutch that's in my flathead project. I'm puttin the clutch back together after changing tranny sprocket.

I've never run a stock shovel clutch, just a Primo ProClutch which has diaphragm spring instead of standard springs. Wondering how to set spring tension with this setup. Also, how to set clutch cable end play properly...I can guess but I'd like some hands-on tips if ya don't mind.

So let me have it....tips, tricks, criticism, agnosticism, primitivism, jokes, mud-slingin', shit-slingin', swearing, screaming, drive-by fruitings, whatever ya got I will take it........you fokkers!!!

Ya took too long and "timed Out"!!
 

Ok Cable slacked off.

Install all the plates & steels .

Put on the spring plate assembly.If it's in one piece.

Now tighten down the nuts on the spring retainer til the gap between the pressure plate & spring retainin plate is 7/8" MIN. and 1 1/32" max. evenly measured at a few spots around the circumference.

Then ya can screw in the center threaded adjuster screw until the angle of the cable to the clutch release arm is as close to 90 deg. as possible.If ya had electric start the arm is adjusted to 1/2" off the starter.
Lock down the center adj. nut.

Now tighten the cable adjuster (by the tranny end of the cable housing) until you have the 1/8" of movement at the handlebar lever before the cable starts to pull and move the spring/pressure plate out from the clutch pack.

That's the base setup.Adjust the nuts on the clutch hub studs in to reduce slippage and the cable end adjuster for the action you like before the clutch engages fully.

I meant to add that an easy gauge for measuring the spring tension gap between plates is a US Quarter on edge.
Tryin to read a measurin device in there can be frustratin.
Don't know if a Canuck Quarter is the same diameter.
Guess ya could measure it.Figured you might have a yank quarter.
