Sorry, donīt understand it, if i put it like the original set, one hole inside the flywheel with the shorter ones like Salven says on youtube, and give a 0.6 gap i will melt completely the clutch. That gap is too much for the small ones or iīm putting it in the wrong position. That pins that you refer is there a reference for that?
Thanxs.

The pins on the flywheel. I build my clutch exactly like Salven does. Lets start over. What's the problem with the clutch again?

Does your clutch slip?

Are you looking acceleration?

Thanks for your time and patience,
I used the original spring and a put it at 0.8 tight, rest like Salven says 0.6 gap and the clutch melt, the small ones were smashed between the flywheel and the prate, like it as to mutch gap.
Thxs.

Double check your gap then because that's a sure sign of too much gap. Make sure you don't have to much play in the clutch bell.

Ok, i will give i try will start with 0.4 gap end play 0.1.
I think a .6 is to much , but thats my opinion, what pins you apply at the second hole?

Thxs,
You have these flyweights?

then the right hole of each flyweight is to be put over the pins, the left hole is for an optional little screw you can put in, to give the flyweight some extra weight. Which in turn might give you a bit more punch.

Thank you, that was the picture and the explanation that i need to see, can you please tell me what clutch setup work better? with that flyweight?
I believe my mistake was the wrong hole on the pins.

Thxs,
Gap 0.7mm, end play, 0.1mm (I just keep adding 0.1mm shims, until the bell starts binding when tightening the screw, then I remove 1 shim)
With the big alu plate, you can even go to a gap of 1mm, without losing the flyweights. With the older type of plates, 0.8mm became dangerous...

So, the starting point of the spring is around 0.8?

On this video you can see he tells you to used the left hole on the flywheel, on this way i melted the clutch.

Do you know how to measure the gap? M7H never mentioned the spring in his post.

Dont get me wrong mate but i know what you mean and i dont consider my self o nooby on that matter. Basically is the same way on that video.
M7H tell me to put on the right hole the flywheel pin and on the way i try it, i put it like in the video, on the left pin that sounds more logical, but this flywheels were made at the beginning to put between the flywheel pins, and it melted, used on the left hole on flywheel pin, 0.6 gap .1 end play and .8 spring.(kit spring)
Thxs,

Thxs,
The video is correct, I don't know what you mean with left and right hole, we are confusing each other.
These are the holes which must be placed over the pins.



These flyweights where never meant to be put in between the pins, who told you that?

The 10mm tip on 2.40 min in the video, is a good one, as a starting point.
But this is completely depending on the engine used (they can differ up to 1mm in crankshaft length), and eventually can be changed with shims put between front engine bearing and conus.
