Grey One, if you ever feel inclined to clean another one why don't you throw a #8 washer in one of the spring cups too, this will shim up the clutch spring to compansate for worn clutch lining and make a fix last lot longer and make for a much nicer spin.

I've done this many times when someone wants to get by cheap and have never had a problem.


Willie B, you are one clever dude.  Domo for sharing this pearl!  :rocker:
