Putting a clutch together

hi there you need to take the clutch cover off after draining the oil ,remove the bolts going into the clutch basket take the springs out as well if you have the cash put in new springs when installing the clutch ,after you take the outer off then take out the plates and have acheck on size and wear ,then there should be a large nut and lock washer tap down the tab that stops the nut spinning loose then put your foot on the back brake and undo the nut this will be very tight if you have a air rattle gun this makes life a lot easier .then replacing the clutch basket it would be good sense to put a new bearing in the clutch houseing then put it back together in the oposite direction cheers hopes this helps cheers

Clutch problems

I know unless they changed the design the clutches need oil to operate properly to allow Slippage when clutch is in (handle is pulled in) Are you trying to shift by rocking the bike? It should shift with the clutch engaged (Engine not running) just by rocking the bike back and forth and operating the shifter. I do know without oil on the clutches with the engine running there will be to much force put on the gears to allow them to shift plus it is a very bad Idea to ever run an engine without oil in it. Be it a 4 Stroke or a 2 stroke.

Dont know how to put my clutch back on my polan 3416

I believe this model has an inboard clutch, so there should be a large backing washer that goes on first, this is followed by the clutch, this just spins onto the crank anti clock wise and tighten up against the backing washer, once on there is a smaller washer then the clutch drum, this is then retained with a dished washer and a circlip

Can't tighten clutch on Kenmore zig zag sewing machine.

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

Clutch Release Problem

You will need to remove the clutch release knob and the 3 eared positioner (the clutch) under that knob. Reposition the clutch on the shaft, put the knob back on and see if you can put the screw back in the hole. If it hits something, remove the knob, remove the clutch and turn it 180 degrees. This will reposition the ears. Put the clutch back on the shaft, put the knob back on the shaft and screw the screw into the hole. Test to be sure the knob releases the hand wheel to wind the bobbin.Be sure the thread is under the thread guide when you wind the bobbin and that there is a slight tension on it.
