have taken the bolt of the end of the shaft and it looks like theres a shim holding the clutch on but is this all? i cant get the thing out! HELP BEFORE I SET THIS THING ON FIRE[/QUOTE]
Welcome back! I know the feeling well, clutch stuck and thinking of matches, well it looks like time for copious quantities a PB Blaster. Spray it in the bolt end and on the back side also, let it set and try again. There is only a 1/4" key on the shaft and a couple of shims on the trans side, nothing else but rust holding that baby on there. If you can get it off in one piece be sure to use anti seize on the shaft when it gets reinstalled, the shims prevent the clutch from contacting the brake rotors at max speed. I remember some guys using wedges behind the clutch to force it off, it will likely get bent doing that. Mine came off in about five pieces with the help of a portable band saw. Good luck!
Make sure you have the correct trans belt before you bother to pull the secondary. If the trans belt is too loose you will also have a power problem.The secondary is very simple and usually works within reason even when the spring starts to fatigue. Also pull the bulkhead to see how the clutch back shifts under load. Argo clutches do not back shift very well under power in high gear, especially if you are climbing hills and making lots of turns. Does the engine seem to have enough power when you idle the engine back and then start the turn? If so then you have a back shift issue. unfortunately the back shift issue requires a new spring or an adjustment to the secondary clutch spring.
Acta non verba
i finally managed to get it off and tightened up the spring by one notch (from hole number 3 onto number 2) and only tested it for 5 mins but it seems better, i'm going to test it properly tomorrow and if it is still the same i am going to record a video of the clutches in action and let you guys see it and maybe yous can tell me what is wrong!
