Torque setting
« on: 01.09. 2011 20:47 »
Nothing in any of my books, does anybody have the torque setting for the  clutch centre retaining sleeve nut ? I have a nasty habit of overtightening stuff!
Thanks

 Can't help with an exact figure but red loctite and a rattle gun works well for me. At a guess I'd say around the 50ft/lb mark.

A rattle gun? You're a brave man musky!  *smile*
What worked for me was right foot on the kickstart lever and left foot on the ratchet to tighten the clutch nut.  :D

I take the same subtle approach as Muskrat; Rattle gun and Loctite!

G'day Olev,
               all good thanks.
 Just did the clutch nut as described on my next project.
 '64 A65 that slid down the road about 15 years ago and stored. No tank, side covers or f/guard. Started 3rd kick  *smile* it's got boyer and roller timing side. More fun.
 Cheers
