Default Clutch set up help!

ive been having the issue of keeping the clutch bell from coming loose, ive tried loctiteing it with Medium loctite and left it over night as well as straight after it comes loose.

how do you do your clutch and what do you use? when racing.

i havent seen many on a race day having to take the engine out to check their clutch..

what would you advice i should do?

Hard to say I use blue dynagrip and they never come loose, I sometimes have trouble getting the screw out without rounding it. And I never leave it overnight, just put it on, bolt up and go.
It should stay put if you are doing what you say!?!?
Wouldn't reccomend a drop of red cause you might not get it loose without a struggle.

Loctite 222 is the best.

I Dont use any locktite at all on the clutch bell bolt. and i havent had one come loose yet... You need to make sure it is shimmed right and the mesh is correct i seen you use paper doubled up and them mesh it and tighten it up but do you check to make sure it is running parallel aswell all this plays apart in it

WHOA!!! Don't coat the screw with loctite. That's too much. Like XXXray said, set up the shimming and CB clearance, plus gear mesh first (and use the right size of screw). Then clean the threads of the screw as best you can. Apply one drop of loctite to the tip of the screw. Then assemble everything and go for it. Make sure you tighten the screw all the way down and cinch it down. Like, after it stops going in the end of the crank, apply a bit more torque and stop. You should be good right there. Don't apply so much force that you're trying to twist the crank or anything. Just good German specs---Gud-en-tite. LOL. sorry bad joke.

My initial thought supports what others have posted. The shimming on your clutch bell bearings is to tight. This would cause the bolt to loosen.
