View Full Version : clutch problem?
21-09-2008, 12:42 PM
i have a cen .12 engine that i got secondhand. the clutch was draging so i cut down the shoes. that stopped a lot of the problems but when i tighten up the screw that holds the bellhousing and pinion, the engine turns over as i push the car along the floor. if i loosen the bellhousing screw a half a turn the engine stops turning over and the car will free wheel. am i doing something wrong? i know the car should free wheel and not crank the engine when i push it

sounds like the there is no free play in the clutch bell, you should have some end float on the clutch cover?

ok. so how do i cure my problem? the car is well battered and i dont have any instructions for it so i dont know if parts are missing
You need to use shims or washers.
Have a look at this

if the clutch bell is draging/catching try taking a shim/washer out from where the bearing is then tighting up the screw and see if the clutch bell spins free. :) good luck
