You have very little to work with....slotting is not an option...you'll leave nothing of strength to resist removal torque.

Extractor is about the only option...but much finesse will be required to avoid a complete butchering in a fastener this small.

Tell ya' what....if you were to dremel the washer away by whatever method, trying to avoid the screw...you could get a grip on it with pliers or visegrips or the like...


oh yea thats what i use a flat head screw and a cone washer.
that comes, with the losi i just dint know what v shape screw he was talking about.

oh your using , the same clutch screw and cone washer im using well the only thing that, will work to get it out is to use the a cut off wheel. and start up to the top of, the cone washer and make a slot down to the bottom of the washer just, make the slot deep enough to use a flat head or get some needlenose and turn the washer to loosen the screw.

and watch, out try not to hit the clutchbell teeth with the cutoff wheel.
and cover up the carb needle so no metal shaveings on into it.

Yep....you need to get that washer out. Even if you trash your clutchbell. Cranks are far more expensive.

I do this kinda' thing for a living...fireman of sorts...you know anyone at a machine shop around you? Not the kinda' thing you can just walk in with without knowing someone...

I like this idea as well....

If the washer spins...cut the other side as well and get the washer out...

alright baseilly, just get a dremal with a cutoff wheel and use the low speed setting on it and make a slot of the top of the washer to the whole screw.

and just make, the slot deep enough so you can use a flathead screwdriver and than loosen it or get the needlenose and grab the washer and turn it.

sounds kinda simple so basically your cutting a line through the washer and screw?

Cut a little, then see if you can get a bite in it with your best small screwdriver...if not...cut a little more....and so on.
