cant seem to keep from slipping.no book instructions. Double nut six stud, new basket and clutch, chain and engine sprocket. tried w/nuts just equal to end of threads, adjusted pushrod w/1/16 play. still slipping. any suggestions? thanks.
Have the corks ever been replaced? Might need to replace the cork inserts... Or friction plates...
Another effort that has assisted me before, is to have the steel plates lightly sand blasted.
Perhaps the springs have lost their tension?
Looking back at your post, you may not have enough tension applied to the springs, adjust the nuts equaly tighter, but not so tight that the coils bind. Somewhere between the nuts at the end of the studs, and 'clutch in' coil bound, you should find the sweet spot.
You have lubed your clutch cable, right??? A drop of oil on the pivot of your clutch lever?
If you disassemble your clutch pack, while it's apart, check that the steel plates are flat. If not, replace.
hey thanks for responses, I replaced all plate and corks,new springs, new corks on sprocket too. also back filed all burs off each stamped steel plate will try bringing spring tension in equal measure and try. keep posted gg
Chripes. Now I feel like a gosh darn hero. Anyway the owner of this wonderful little Golden Flash will get that clutch spot on. No question in my mind. Very talented mechanical abilities. Just needs a little encouragement from us older folks every now and then. Skeet

If you are running the 6 spring clutch originally mounted on your bik yoy will find it very difficlt to work propoerly. This clutches are yust crap. If you adjust it to free out completely, enabeling easy to find neautral at standstill it will slip. If you adjust for no slip you are not able to engange neutral at standstill and you will have problems with creeping. The only way is to replace the clutch for a later 4 spring Triumph type used on later A10's. Several shops in UK among them C&D Auto and Draganfly sells complete kits at reasonable prices.
