Thanks Jake.

@ apvkt.
I deleted your post about replacing an automobile clutch.
It was not well served on this forum/thread.
check your PM.

the first link's photos have been removed :(

just to be clear with the first link, he said lean it over so the oil doesn't leak out, does this mean that you can actually do this with a crankcase full of oil? :eek:

and to be sure, because i don't think it said anywhere plainly, the parts you will need if your clutch is worn beyond repair, is a set of steel plates, a set of organic plates (kevlar, composite ect) springs, and gaskets, that's it?

I'd replace the screws as they can break easy, and a new lock washer.

+1!! Even tho they only get torqued to like 5ft/lbs, three of mine broke last time I did my clutch. Just ordered a new set myself, rebuilding my clutch next week.

ditto:
cable [hiding in plain site] is easily over-looked. it should be visually inspected [both ends] and lubed [I use motor oil] before re-installing - if not replaced.
