Question: Just switched over from a hortsman HDCB 2 disk clutch to the L &T mini single disk and love it so far. Question I have when I dissasmbly this clutch for routine maintanence, do you recommend a light film of grease on the dog bones and levers. Also how do I adjust engagement RPM?

Thanks

Answer:
Randy,
Yes you can put grease on those areas. to set engagement you turn screws to the right until you feel the screw free up. then with your thumb and forfinger(for good feel) you turn to left until you feel the nut touch the spring. Do that to all of springs and now you are ready to adjust. Turn 1/2 turn left and start there. Adjust accordingly. Left to raise engagement.
Thanks,
Jeff

Question: I am about to purchase one of your 3 disk 6 spring wet clutches. Please tell me what the service tool is used for. I have a puller for a Horstman dxl that I was told will work with your clutch. Do I need the service tool?

Does your clutch come with the starter nut and spacer?


Answer:
Yes our clutches come with all you need for installation, Clutch key, Starter nut , drum spacer and lapping compound. The clutch should be lapped on to crank proir to install. The service tool compresses the clutch so it can be taken apart worked on and put together. You will need the tool for regular maintenance.The DXL puller should work with our clutch.



Clutch: General Question
Question: Should I run a wet or dry clutch? I'm a beginner.
Answer:
Depending on what class you are running, high horsepower classes or classes where the engagement RPM of the clutch is above 9000rpm, I recommend the wet clutch because it handles the heat better. The dry clutch is best for lower horsepower classes that use lower RPM engagement settings, such as the Yamaha can classes. For a beginner, I'd recommend a wet clutch for most senior classes due to its lower maintenance time.
