Default Does the Werks B6 require a special clutch???

I was trying to put the new clutch I got off a 8t 2.0 RTR kit on my Werks B6 and the Collet doesnt want to go over the drive shaft? Will the standard Losi clutch not work on this engine?

I thought we went through this already?

All big block engines have a standardized setup, losi requires a different collet

It will fit, you just need to figure it out it will happen sooner or later I am sure

Interesting, oh well it didn't want to go on the B6 so I put it on the Nova I got from Andy done up by H.E.S (I guess that is you). I'll give that engine a try first and then come back to the B6

You will need a special collet installation tool that
slips into the slot in the collet. It will spread the
collet open just enough to allow it to slide onto
the crankshaft. I don't have the exact part number
of the tool, but you may already have one, most
people call it a "small flat-head screwdriver".
It looks similar to the tool that you might use to
adjust the mixture screws on the carburetors of
the rc nitro engines.

Thanks, I usually use my fingernail to adjust my needles but I will give that a try when I am done tuning the Nova in.

if you are new to the werks motors, one thing to look out for...
Make sure you have a enough clearance between the flywheel and the carb. I run hotbodies or mugen flywheels on my werks, and i have to add spacers behind the collet. Make sure to run at least ONE small washer against the bearing, so that it only touched the inner race of the bearing(i may be off on my terminology on the bearing)
depending on the flywheel it may rub the carb.
i had a piece of straw get stuck in it once and flame me out, it was that tight of a gap.
