Default What tools do I need?

Do I need to take off my primary to change my spring and weights? I was thinking I just need these tools http://www.receng.com/servlet/the-18...h-Tools/Detail to change the weights and then do I just remove the 5 or 6 outer circumference bolts to change the spring? Advice please. Any other tips you can offer?

If you change your weights when you change your spring you don't need the tool mentioned to change your weights. And yes just remove the 6 outer bolts evenly, easiest to remove 3 completely then other 3 evenly till it pops, you can actually hold the pressure with one hand and spin them out pretty fast once you get them all almost out. You then need an allen wrench and a socket to remove the pin that holds the arm, buy a cheap socket and grind/bevel one side to fit over the nut and a t-handle allen works great to spin out the pin. With clutch installed and spring in you can pry sheave open with a flat blade screwdriver, then insert a wrench and pry the rest of the way and insert a 1/2" socket or block or whatever you desire to hold it open and replace weights while on the trail without taking off outer cover. Just be sure that you have spring compressed enough that there is enough room to remove arm. Sounds like a lot but once you do it for the first time it will all make sense and is pretty sraight forward

pawpaw put it right.

If it ever comes down to just changing the weights make sure while your doing that, the spring doesn't release while your fingers are in there. If that happens you will be saying every swear word known to mankind.

That link is a tool that is used instead of a screwdriver as pawpaw said. To change the spring, you have to take the outside cover off (remove the 6 bolts). You can even do it while your sled is on it's side so you don't have to remove the clutch. Removing the clutch is not extremely hard but you have to be very careful you don't strip the threads in your crank. It's a strange process to remove the clutch. The dreaded pop still scares me.

When you put the cover back on make sure you do not overtorque the bolts. It is better to be safe than sorry, if you twist one off you may never retrieve it and may have to throw the clutch away.

Don't forget to take note of the "X" on the outer clutch cover and it's orientation with the clutch. All the main components are balanced and need to go back on exactly the way they come off. You can also take a magic marker and put a mark on the clutch cover and the tower, sheeve if you don't know where to look for the X's that are cast into the pieces. You don't need to index the weights as long as they all weigh the same. An ignition wrench will work for holding the lock nut on the weight pin bolt if you don't have the modified socket mentioned above. There are also torque specs for the clutch face bolts and the weight pin bolts. Don't over torque them, a broken one is a pain. I also add a spot of blue locktite to the weight pin bolt before installing the nut. That lock nut can loose its lock pretty fast.

Good luck. EW

And always make sure the weight pin is installed from left to right, opposite the direction of rotation of the clutch.

Do you happen to know the torque settings?

Thanks everyone for chiming in. Appreciate it!

Good point. This gets over looked.

I would say no to the locktite on the weight pin nuts.
