Alright so i think i am having a clutch issue that i might no the answer to i just to wanted to make sure. Right now i have the clutch bout midway between the engine and the transaxle and i have a idler/tenser pulley between the engine and clutch pulley. i did some light testing i had it up on a cynderblock an put it in first gear. when i press in the clutch nothing happens... the tires keep on spinning. could it be cuz theres no load on it or should i move the idler pulley to the other side of the clutch(in between the clutch and the trans axle)?

thanks

ill try that.. i think its getting slack enuf. the clutch is on the edge of the right side and when fulley depresses it will hit the other side. i had to put a stopper in so it would stop just before hitting . alsotho aner question i had was when you push in the clutch is it supposed to make it slip on the rear or engine pulley?

thanks

it should slip at the engine, well the belt should come away from the pulley so its not touching it at all but if its touching its ok

in that case i think i should move my idler because most of the slack is going to the rear. i think if i didn't have a idler in between the clutch and engine it would help
ill have to test that tommorow

Should be able to mess around n build one from plain steel- those billet ones are for those high dollar racers.
