A few months ago the clutch on my Titan started dragging. My cheap fix (cuz I'm cheap) was to gently push the clutch shoes back in. Well that lasted about 2 gallons. The last few tanks it started dragging again until I could not start it. So this time I replaced the clutch. Here's where it get a bit weird - the clutch shim is broken. I think the clutch shoe was grabbing and hanging on the cracked shim! When I first dropped the engine the clutch was dragging in a spare bell I have just like in the heli. After I was done swapping everything out I noticed that the clutch fits properly in the bell now!?
Anyone have this happen before? I think this may have been caused by me installing the shim upside down. thoughts? I really appreciate having the clutch shoe clearance machined into the fan, wish tt did this instead.
