Put the new leaf springs and shoes from treats on version 1 today

The extra thick pads don’t even help, you have to shave them down. Like 1/2way :( just to fit in the bell.

New leaf spring is weaker than stock, but after cutting the pads in the lathe and cutting sipes it really rips super hard again. I like this original modded clutch over the other one I made still. Could be it’s weight but I’ll lighten at some point.

But fuck I’ll challenge this clutch mod against any clutch pulley for how it responds.

I’m planning on trying a trick to put the spring hook on the bottom of the pad, because it sucks when the pad wears out and the spring gets eaten. But you just pop the next coil out on the spring and you’re ready to go (with new pads)

Other odd thing is that there’s a gap between the spring and the metal it rests on, Even with attaching the bolts in the same place. So I’d feel comfortable adding another rivet or bolt higher up the leaf spring to get that arc pulled back down and engagement higher with less end spring
