I have installed about 15 centrifugal clutches so far, they are now standard equipment on all by builds.
Every engine is different. On some, the clutch goes on easy, no problem, but on others, I have to shave the crankshaft taper a little bit for a good fit.
On my first few builds, I did the keyway cutting thing, but later, I stopped, and have not had any problems.
I always add a lockwasher, I feel better knowing that there is some sort of lock to keep the bolt from unscrewing.
