Default Re: Clutch help

Actually, RC, smoothing and polishing the clutch actuator mechanism is a mod I do to every engine I work on. The reduction in clutch pull is significant if done right. I smooth and even polish the contacting parts on a bench buffer then lubricate well before reassembly. Naturally, if one gets carried away they could remove too much material and compromise the mechanism but a simple radius on the edge of the cam will not hurt. In fact it should have been done at the factory.
