OK, so just how does the Tomos clutch on an A35 work? I heard conflicting info on what/when the first gear releases and 2nd engages.
Background: 64cc Polini 4 reed block, MLM pipe and clutches reshoed with brake material.
I have tried various spring and fluid combinations but it still won't shift worth a damn!
So the question is: does the first gear need to stay engaged at high rpm for the 2nd to engage and then does first gear stay engaged the entire time 2nd is engaged? Or does first need to release for 2nd to engage?
Thus is where the conflicting info is. The manual is also unclear.
I have tried red /yellow, red /blue, and yellow/blue for spring setups and 0-20 synthetic as well as type F trans fluid.
So if u hammer it of the line and then let off, it may shift, otherwise not so much.
So keep in mind the non original, not cork clutch shoes, do I need the first gear to stay engaged longer for it to shift (weaker spring ) or less stiffer spring?
As always, thanks for your input guys!
