hvy duty clutcg bell?

Postby captcapo on Thu May 02, 2013 6:47 pm

I've recently changed clutch shoes to a hvy duty racing. But, afterwards short runs and tuning, I had actually broken the the clutch bell. Sheared the bell rite from the shaft. What could have caused this? Shoes engaging to quick, or perhaps slipping to much? Any insight would be great.
Anyways perhaps someone knows somewhere u can buy a hvy duty clutch bell. Please message me

Maybe the bearings have failed this will jam everything up and put to much pressure on the clutch bell.

This was the result of a failed bearing in my GST bell

Ty for the input. I will look into the bearings condition more closely, but, as now it seems fine. I will look into other avenues .
Ty any other ideas I'm all ears

Well now I'm just mad... The bearing wasn't bad till I tried to remove it from the clutch bell, what a pain in the a--. If the bearing and gears are pressed in I would think they would sell it already assembled. So in the process of me trying to press the bearing out, it collapsed. :twisted:

Maybe the bearings you are buying are not good quality. also Clutch bearings wear out fast so make sure you replace them often say every 3-5 run time.
