Please tell me how you installed the clutch. I have an OS15, but it has a shaft for an airplane with a nut and not a screw.

Do you mean I need to use the shaft from the engine too? I cannot install the clutch on my engine. My shaft looks like the 2.5 but it has threads on the very end. It has the airplane shaft.

i tried it on a os myself and i belive that tt shaft will fight just right i dont know what my os was i think it was a 12 but they should be about the same or you could by a shaft extension if that dont work and you would have to take off the round part on the os shaft so you can get longer reach
