Default clutchbell sticking to flywheel. what do i do

well i nailed it down why i cant put the pixi in my TC3, but im confused to no end. when i first put it in with a single speed it worked perfectly. then a bearing disentigrated and i needed a nw set. i went home and popped them on in a hurry and assembled it with the new 2-speed and it was locking to the flywheel. so today i put the single speed clutchbell on as an experiment. it locks too.

do i dare ask, do these bearings need to be lubed?? my LHS never said they did and never asked....

take the clutch off then put the clutchbell back on, just to see if the bell isnt sticking to the clutch.

thats the annoying thing

when i first put the pixi in with the single speed it did this, but they wore down and it was easy to tell it was that because the clutchbell was fitting very tight on the shoes.

but now i have an MIP clutch and i have tried it with and without the clutch. still sticks so it sticks at the bolt, which makes no sense in that it'd suddenly started doing this with both clutchbells

sounds like the screw that holds the bell on the shaft is too tight

have u tried turning it with no screw, and have u tried an extra washer between the clutch bell and shaft where u put the screw thru?

did u follow me on that?

Default clutch bell

Are you using the stock clutch bell with the upgraded clutch.
This car should have a 2 shoe clutch<white clutch shoes>
The clutch should never have to "wear" in.
Either the bell is dragging on the shoes, or the flywheel is the wrong one for that clutch bell.
If a bearing disintergrated, make sure there are no burrs inside the clutch bell from the old bearing.
You should be able to assemble everything smoothly with the bearings, and then set the end gap for the clutch bell

Didnt anybody look at the date of the first post? What gave it away was when he started talking about his Pixi.
