Default Proper clutch shoe removal and install?

Guys _ I bought an already built Kanai 2 off ebay - the car was primo, but the builder didn't tighten down the clutch/flywheel sufficiently and it loosened when I tried to start it first time. The motor is very tight and it backfired and twiched the retaining nut.


That means I had to remove the clutch shoes et al to tighten the nut.........just checking - when looking at the motor from the shaft end back to the cylinder - (head on) - which way do the shoes go if the clutch shoe shafts/pins are at 8 12 and 4 o'clock? I think the 8 o'clock clutch shoe lays from the pin at 8 up to 12 basically
as the motor spins counter clockwise - is this correct?

thanks for your answer to a dumb question -

Thumbs up

Yup.... that is exactly correct - I got home from work and
layed out the pieces - you can't put it together backwards
it just don't fit backwards - there's only one way to make
the springs line up with the grove in the nut, I learned working
on motorcycles that if it doesn't go together smoothly, you're probably screwing it up - everything fits like a glove
thanks for your advice.

hi, i am a newbie and i have the same problem before. I install the clutch shoes backward and my buggy has very good punch when i gun the throttle. but i dont like the way the power delivered. i end up reinstalled the shoes in the correct way as illustrated by data.

by the way, what is an easier way to install the shoes?? my shoes almost broken after 2xtimes installation.

Hehe, I don't think there is an easy way to get them on. I hated putting on those shoes. Gotta love the centax.
