Default Re: Some help with centrifugal clutch install

My gasket came in today, I will work on it this weekend and report back.
I haven't tried bending it yet, for the way it works, I think that's going to be the last step. What do you mean cut the bolt? The bolt that goes into the crankshaft, cut that by 2 or 3 mm? That would help if that was how to fix it. Yeah, I'm not completely done yet, so tomorrow hopefully I can get it all fit right, and install the washers and lock washer.
