Default Centax new problem

I ve been running centax clutches for a while now with out any problems. Ive set the nut that holds the spring after the shoe 9mm as stated in the manuals. It runs fine for 10 mins then the clutches slip. Everytime I take it apart the nut that holds the spring has screwed its self fully in. Any ideas what might be causing this?

Be sure the nut and inside the clutchbell are smooth. When using a pin from the outside setting the nut you can bend some material of the nut to the outside touching the clutchbell.
And you can use some weak threadlock on the nut.
The quality of an answer comes with the quality of the question.

That's what I do. I little dab of blue loctite and it's good to go. Once it's been done once, it forms a little ridge inside the nut so I usually don't have to reapply it. It can be moved easily until it gets to that ridge so it wont tighten up.
