new clutch fried.

Recommended Posts

Brand new motor top to bottom with new clutch.

 

The clutch adjustment is suspect, but I want to make sure it is not going to do this again .It looks like it went dry, probably cooked the oil off, but I want to make sure it is getting lubricated. The motor has proper oil levels.

 

Someone correct me if I am wrong, oil is not pumped into the basket, it is indirectly lubricated via oil submersion... correct?

One thing I found curious is how little oil it appears is on the clutch during operation. When I was playing with the Rekluse and making adjustments if you pulled the clutch a few minutes after you shut it off you would think it had sat overnight and everything had drained off. Evidently with the dry sump setup there isn't a lot oil splashing around. Clay
