Just bought a 86 Maxi-Luxe and am loving it. Did some basic maintance, points/timing, cleaned carb and reset float to proper level.
I am confused about the transmission oil. I did change it to type "F" when I got it as I had no idea how old it was. I am a big fan of synthetic oil, but confused as to what viscosity to use in the tranny.
I'd like to try and tune the clutch a bit as it seems to engage fairly early and boggs down initially. My guess it to start with 1/2 to 1 turn in on each shoe.
I have read here to use weak springs and thick oil like 10W-40. I don't really understand the theory.
Any suggestions very much appreciated.
