Hello
I cant get the clutch to the right position. I looks like its in line with the engine, when i turn it, it spins freely. But when I turn the engine it blocks.
I tried to hover it- no problem, but to start the engine i have to use a separate clutch attached to the starter. The starting cone is spinning all the time. In Ergo, it shouldnt.
Ihope you can understand me

Isn't there a one way bearing on on the clutch??? Maybe that is shot?

There is a one-way bearing in the clutch and yes, it is normal for the start shaft to spin when the engine is running. To check if the one-way bearing is working properly, just put your finger gently on the top of the start shaft, while the engine is idling and the shaft should stop spinning, without much resistance.

This is the first thing you should try.

Keep us posted,

John

The engine spins the start shaft. When I try to stop it ,it makes a horible noise.

It's normal for it to make a little more noise when you try and stop it. If it's a horrible noise, then, either it's dry or shot.

If the one-way bearing is shot, then, you wouldn't be able to start the engine. And, also, if it is nearly shot, you'll hear it all the time, it would make noise at all times, when the engine is running.

If you're able to start the engine, no problem and it only makes noise when you stop it, then, it should be fine.

There are lubricants you can use for this purpose ... I use Racer's Choice one way bearing grease # RCC 7040. I think it's used primarily for r/c buggies, which take even more abuse and I've found it to be very effective.

The other solution is to ditch the one-way bearing entirely and press in a solid shaft. If you do this, then, you have to have a start bearing on your start wand ... but, it makes servicing the bearing a whole lot easier.

Hope this helps,

John

Just a thought is the crank shaft hitting the bottom of the starter shaft up in the clutch bell that would cause it to spin constantly also.
Also the cluth would be sticking down slightly below the cluth bell if this was the case.
