Clutch holding tool

Anyone in the Aurora area have a clutch holding tool I can borrow? A pack a beer of your choice in return.

Thanks in advance.

DGR should sell them. if you have air tools you dont need one. Put it in gear, then put a 2x4 through the wheel braced against the swing arm. I managed to get the nut off that way, with no air tools

You can make one using a steel plate and welding a screwdriver to it or by bolting a fibre plate and steel plate together. I jam an oil soaked shoprag into the primary drive gears to hold things snug and I've never broken a gear tooth in 40 years. It holds enough to get the torque you need to pop the nut loose but is soft and gives enough to prevent damage. Just make sure you clean any rag bits out of the gear teeth.
Derick's 2x4 trick sounds like it would work too. Good luck.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

a ratchet strap, minus the ratchet wrapped around the basket and hooked to the frame will also work in a pinch, make sure that the direction of it winding up onto the basket is the same direction as the direction of loosening the nut, assuming you lack the above suggestions

I have one. You're welcome to come get it and leave a cash deposit.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.
