Default Re: Please Help! Clutch Problems

If i dont rev the engine its usually fine. Would i have to physically adjust the clutch on the opposite side of the motor? Thanks guys
yes adjusting the flower nut s simple, pull the clutch in so you can move the nut easily. If it is catching just loosen the nut a little at a time i'd say the next opening for the screw to go in. And if that is not enough a little more. If you loosen it a lot and the motor will not engage anymore then you would have to tighten up the inner spring but it will probably not come to that, it's easy too as long as you follow the directions on hoe to do it.
