Default Re: adjusting the clutchs spring for more tension

to get the sprocket off you use the supplied puller some kits don't have them the vendors on the side bars do sell them for around $10.00? I'm not sure on the price but they are cheap and you will need one for removing any of the gears on the engine all gears are threaded for the puller.

I tried adjusting the spring tension and it just seems to push the clutch push rod further out the left side so the cover sticks out about half an inch when you put it on. it doesn't seem to make the clutch engage any better either. if you adjust the star nut on the right side too far in then the clutch won't disengage at all and it still slips. any idea what could cause this? maybe clutch pads, though it is a new engine?

I got it working. I had to trim the rubber clutch pads down some
and hit the outer clutch plate really hard with a hammer, recommended
by BGF where I bought the motor. The combination got it working
enough to ride it, but it still slips when I start it.

I would skip the advice from BGF in the future.

If you have trouble with getting the clutch lever to move on the engine. Either slip on a short length of tubing or use a crescent wrench or even vice grips to work the lever on the engine
do not use the hammer! You will have to have the 3 screws screwed in on the sprocket cover along with the short shaft and ball bearing in the main shaft.
The lever is a real bitzh to try and move with only your fingers the wrench or short length of tubing will make it a breeze to work the clutch arm to free it up if it is stuck.
Never use a wrench or tubing on the clutch lever on the handlebars to work the clutch as you will likely break something.
