Question: After replacing the springs and dog-bones, and seating the nut/bolt by turning counter-clockwise, the nut/bolt has very little tension after turning 4-5 complete turns clockwise. Is that normal?
Answer:
Todd,
When setting the springs you first turn all the way clockwise. With your thumb and forfinger turn counterclockwise until you feel the nut touch spring. Do this to all. Then put 1/2 turn more counterclockwise. They should be evenly set now. check engagement and adjust accordingly. You should never turn all the way counterclockwise. This can damage the spring.

Question: I have problem with no axial clearance when using your spacer of 0.105 width. I see in one of your answers that you should not use a spacer when using "a bearing style drum". sorry for being stupid maybe but how do I know if I have a bearing style drum or not? I have a needle roller bearing on the drum does that make it a bearing style drum? If so I get it that I should not use a spacer but then my axial clearance is > your 0.020 spec, what to do?
Answer:
Hans,

You have a bearing driver. Bushing drivers do not have needle roller bearings. If your driver spins freely after you tighten the starter nut, the clutch will operate fine.
