Sachs clutch

Anyone know how to keep the clutch retaining nut from spinning off at high speeds?

I have an 80cc kit and when I hit 45+ the clutch retaining nut spins off just a little, enough to loosen the entire clutch basket and therefor leave me high and dry...

Ive used locktite, red to no avail

Re: Sachs clutch

put it all togathet good and tight then mark one spot on the nut and crank threads with a drop of red nail polish. Ypu know in between the two .Than remove crank from engine so you can drill a cotter pin in there and or include a castle nut to the ideal. So crazy it might just work.

Re: Sachs clutch

are you cleaning the nuts and the crank threads good before using the loctite? ACetone? maybe?

Re: Sachs clutch

I like Rick's castlenut idea, provided you can find a castle nut + locking pin in those sizes.

Re: Sachs clutch

thats a very good point crackstar Clean Surfaces Promote Good Adhesion Of Locktite

Re: Sachs clutch

ok I think I'm a gonna try putting on 2 skinny nuts to lock down on eachother...i have cleaned the threads with carb cleaner...but ill try acetote...

thanks for the advice

Re: Sachs clutch

Everyone seems to forget that carb cleaner has lubes in it...if no acetone at least use brake cleaner, it dires with no (oily)residue, thats why its good for brakes and called brakecleaner...
