Default What about mugen springs?

Hi there,

What about pound rating for the mugen or serpent springs? Does anybody have that info? Does anybody have the equipment to measure it?

I put 1 mm plastic spacer between outside bearing of front upright and the pin that goes through the axle shaft and holds the wheel hub. It is a thight fit but works nicely.

Default Kawahara 2-speed

can somebody please enligthen me how to adjust the shiftpoint on the Kawahara 2 speed?

I got it together but I'm not quite sure which adjustment does what.

What are the set screws with the balls doing?
What are the screws with the springs doing?

Why can't I reach the screws with the springs though the clutch bell?

Many questions, but I never had an 1/8th scale with a similar tranny, so I'm a bit confused.

]Thanks

aftalavera: You could use an automotive spring compressor to measure this. All you need to know on springs is the diameter of the coils, the height of the spring and the pressure on the spring just before max bind point.

Here are the Mugan springs listed on Jason's site.
http://www.jasonjenkins.com/mtx2/charts/spring.htm]Janson Jenkins springs[/URL]

Here are the Serpent/X-Ray springs. rate is LB/in
Orange - 15 pounds
White - 20 pounds
Yellow - 25 pounds
Red - 30 pounds

Pepe _Tomek: that what the Prospec does. 1mm washer between housing and pin hole.

Tekrsq: g gram f force mm milimeter
gram force per milimeter. Remember Mugan uses metric (SI)measurements not english.

I will try. They are actually straight forward once you see how it works. Instrcutions leave a lot to be desired. Need better translations!

This is the adjustment. This is where you set the engage point.

Preload of the assembly

You can, you just have to rotate the bell till you do. These are at an angle.

Stefan
Here is the info I posted a while back works good. It is ~ 1/3 way down pg 54 This setup works for me and 2 others localy.

Tip paint these screws a different color so that when you look through the hole in the flywheel you know which one to adjust.
The end screws with the springs (labeled 2.6mm)run them down till they touch and then back them out 3.5 turns. The center screws with the balls(4x4mm) run down till they touch. Now with this all installed in the flywheel, adjust the 4x4 ones till the just rub and then backoff 1/4 turn. This should work for you
