    Clutch Bell?

    I have the infinity .18 on my volcano. I took it off to replace the the clutch shoe and when I tried to remove the clutch bell it would not come off? Does anyone have any ideas on how to get the clutch bell off? And yes i have removed to screw and washers that hold it in place... Thanks -Ben

    The bearings are seiezed on the shaft sounds like. If that's the case you ahve to pry the clutchbell off carfully from the bottom, either with two screw drivers or one and keep going around the bell so it tips back and forth as it works it';s way off.

    Buy a battery terminal puller and slowly "pull" it off.
    I came into this world with nothing and I plan on having most of it left when I leave.

    THat was a good idea, I hadn't ever thought of a battery terminal puller for the clutch bell, on the fly wheel yes, but never on the clutchbell. Nice thinking.


    Your welcome glad you got it off.

    Ben,

    congrats on fixing it. Now go give 'er heck till something else breaks! J/K.

    RC's are about as fun to work on as drive. So far I've driven mine A LOT more

    than I've had to work on it.

    If it wasn't for the guys on this forum, I wouldn't know anything about RC's.
