Default calling all old school guys...........

Guys, now i want to remove my flywheel from my old Novarossi but there is no room to get a socket/nut driver down into the recess to loosen the clutch nut. Any ideas?.....it's the clutch from an old BMT...... man how things change...it's a 4 shoe clutch and it's a leading edge setup??/

Yes, I used this clutch many years ago when I had my BMT.

I had to grind down the outside edge (like a chamfer) & make the bottom of the socket perfectly flat. I did this with a grinder in order to fit it in between.

I hope that made sense.

I'm not 100% sure, but when I use to wrench on planes and stuff, I always needed a "thin walled" deep socket for things like this. I think I have a special one made by Craftsman or Snap-On. Try Craftsman first, you'll probably still need to grind it down, but not nearly as much. Do a search for the "Thin Walled" 10 mm deep socket. Regular everyday sockets are WAY thicker. Good luck man. Later.

For some reason I think I remember using a deep socket like that one needed for when I used to race the Ofna Colt. Yeah... I know....

Now where did I put that thing......???
