Default A good question

Hello, so i have been having low end bogging problems with my motor, i have leaned and richened my motor on both top and bottom end and had experienced people try to tune it for me with no avail

so i got to truoble shooting, no leaks, clutch shoes felt good
i got to looking and the clutch shoes are in backwards so as i look at the engine form the front so i can see the clutch straight on the shoes are hinged on the right hand side which woul make them a leading edge,

the question is, could that be contributing to my bogging problem?
thanks in advance
i have another thing i know is contributing, and that is the shoes are in backwards, there is a thin side and a fat side so the spring is making the shoes ride up on the posts causing the side of the shoes to rub against the clutch
but could the wrong way clutch be also contributing?

100% yes installing the clutch that way will make it grab harder and sooner that will cause the engine to work harder and bog. Install the shoes such that when the engine spins counterclockwise the shoe trails behind the pin. The clutch has everything to do with a bogging problem. Install the clutch shoes correctly and the problem should correct itself.
