i took apart my motobecane clutch as the clutch arms were frozen up and were engaging and disengaging improperly. Upon resemebly i realized the clutch bell was moving to and fro on the axil creating awful grinding noise. i had put all the circlips and spacing washers back properly yet there remained side play. I looked in the manual and it said to use shims of less than 1 mm to space the bell as to make there be .1 mm of side play or less. Where in gods name do i find these terrible suckers!!! i ve bought the wrong shims twice already and am convinced such shims are impossible to find!!! there not on trestland and not on there junk yard and i cant seem to find them on ebay either. if any one can help me i would be more than grateful it is the middle of sept. and i cannot ride at all and it fucking blows!
