The clutch broke yesterday at the track and now trying to remove… Problem!
The 17mm nut came off just fine along with the clutch cage.
Now the 24mm nut will not come off that holds the actual clutch. Tried impact first then breaker bar. Locked the flywheel by the way…
Finally the 24 mm nut started to turn but is not backing off the crack shaft. It turns but is very hard even though it is “loose”. appears to be just turning on the crank. Please tell me these are not reversed/ self tightening nuts!! What could be the issue??? How to remove??
Possibly… I literally just removed the 24mm nut last night and the threads look slightly damaged. I want to find the replacement nut (which is not easy) and see if it will even thread on and most importantly hold.
I am hopeful that the nut has softer threads than the hardened threads of the crankshaft. I have pics but can not seem to post on here.
Any suggestions if the crank threads are damaged? Other than replacement…
