Had a customer today that was told he needed a clutch kit (from a buddy) and came to us for advice. He and his buddy had the wrong idea for clutch weights and spring. Here is the gist and conclusion to the conversation.
"If you go 3-5 MPH, what size weights and spring would you want in the clutch? Lighter or Heavier?" - Todd (Hunterworks Guru)
"Lighter weights and spring of course because of all the play between the clutch halves" - Customer
*The answer is heavier weights. Heavier weights and springs close the clutch tighter so you are able to grip the belt better at lower speeds.*
On a side note, there is a misconception within our customer base. Alot of our customers are TOLD they need a clutch kit from a buddy or local shop mechanic. We here at Hunterworks respect tinkers and mechanics in this line of work, but we believe the owner of the vehicle needs to know if he or she needs a clutch kit themselves.
This is the reason we are in business and why we love what we do. We clear up the misinformation people are being told and help our customers save money in the long run.
Again, we are not knocking tinkers and mechanics in this line of work! People are misinformed because of the way the internet works now a days and we are here to set the record straight!
Okay I'm done now, thanks!
