Smile Mrx5, Nova .21/S Virtus help with end play


Just getting some help with my Novarossi engine for my Mugen Mrx5. I done the clutch gap (0.6-0.7). I clutch spring and nut are good but the shims that come in the kit are mostly 0.2 and i put 3 before the big bearing and two between the two bearings, and there still seems to be a fare bit of end play.... Def not 0.1 - 0.2. I have located 0.5 shims. I am just wondering should i put a shim before the flywheel?? Should you only put 3 shims max before the big bearing??

The engine is a Nova Virtus .21/S 3.5cc

I have always shimmed before the inner bearing on the clutch bell. There are shim kits available seperatly as well. Shimming before the flywheel collet (cone) is helpful when fine aligning the flywheel location.

Here is a video that may offer some help.


Michael has a.lot of such videos, that may help and offer some help.
