Today I replaced my old clutchliner in my Trex 600N since the old one was totally gone and the clutch was just slipping towards the metal clutchbell. I didn`t remove the engine but I just removed the clutchbell from the top of the chassie.

After replacing this unit (I installed a complete new clutchbell) the clutch is engaging when I try to start the engine. Why is that? I seriously doubt that it the the clutchliner that is too thick since there was atleast 0,5mm play between the clutch and the clutchliner during installation.

Any suggestions?

The old liner was completely gone?

Did you replace the clutch along with the liner?

If the liner was gone and it was being flown, the clutch is likely "sprung" from the shoes having to over flex to grab the bell.

Yes, that must be it. I didn`t replace the clutch, just the liner. Damn, then I have to replace the clutch tomorrow (I was planning to fly tomorrow)

Thanks!

Yep the clutch has most probably sprung,curious as to how you removed the Clutch bell without the engine,from the top you must have removed the Block including the two servos.
