The stock gearing should be fine.

Default New Engine For my NTC3

I am looking for a new engine for my NTC3. I currently run a Nova Rossi MT12 and I want more power. What do you guys think of the RB X12 or the RB V12??

try the MR-12

that engine is a screamer


it beats the MT-12 all around

especially in the mid-high end

Very smooth and consistent. Unfortunately the shoes have just one mounting position...at least mine do.

Angry

I am having a problem with assembling the 2 speed. Can't seem to get the assembly tight on the shaft without sepreating the shoes? I assume it will have some play seeing it is only a ball touching the flat on the shaft? I can pull it off the back though?

I have the manual and this is what it says about the 2 speed assembly. I'll copy word for word What i have:

1. Place your two clutch shoes together with the numbers side facing up. Slide #2289 adjustment spring onto #2289 adjustment screw. Insert the screw and spring into the shoes and tighten the screws until they are fully compressed. Be gentle! Now turn the screw 3 1/2 turns counter clockwise. Adjust both screws equally.

2. Slide your clutch Shoe assembly ontp #2286 input shaft

3. To adjust the pressure of the set screw: Adjust the set screws equally so that the ball is just touching the flats on the imput shaft.


NOTE: If the shoe assembly rocks on the shaft, tighten the set screws so the balls are touching the flats, but not enoughto spread the shoes apart. If the shoes start to spread apart, loosen the set screw to take pressure off the ball. Adjust both set screws equally!

I hope this helps.
