I think you all ready found them.
There is no locking device to hold the spring adjusting nut in place. If you come up with one, please share it with us.
I have read others suggest the use of an automotive valve spring as an alternative clutch spring. I have not heard of anyone actually doing this mind you.
Thanks for the input guys. Yeah I found Norm's clutch adjustment posts. Very good stuff. I guess once I assemble and ride the darn thing around and when it comes to a complete teardown I'll have a closer look and see if a little locking nut would be beneficial. But since it's not there no begin with maybe there's no need for it, maybe the collar that adjusts the main clutch spring tension doesn't back off from use. Time will tell.
McGyver could fix that with bubble gum.
