Ok fellas, I cleaned up the clutch and it works great, a little to great! Now I can't get the dumb thing to engage. When I put it in the move position the bearings move over but the pulley just keeps spinning and not engaging, uuuugggghhhh! Any and all help appreciated, and pics coming soon.

Sounds like you may need to adjust the clutch sheave. Once you get that set you can adjust the actuating rod. If your handle bars are set in the highest position you may run out of adjustment on the actuating rod. I had difficulty with mine until I put the bars back to the middle adjustment.

 

You may have already checked this out but, it's a link to how to adjust it.

Hang in there! We look forward to seeing your finished project!

The way I adjusted mine is rotate the outer plate in until it touches, then back it off so the pulley spins. Then adjust the spring on the rod untill it will engage and disengage. I had my spring in the wrong hole in the rod, it should be in the lower hole.

Well, I accidentally forgot to put one of the balls in the first time, uuuugggghhhh! So I am going to try getting ALL of those in this time, and adjusting until it works properly
