Good afternoon,
I am having a problem with clutch plate installation on a T140ES 1982.

My old plates were slipping so I purchased a set of Barnett plates & springs.

The plates came with a stuffer & I think I have installed them incorrectly & want to remove them again but, for love nor money can I get the screws out of the springs they are way to tight, I cant prise a cigarette paper between the bolt head & the spring.

Any thoughts?
Cheers

'82 would have had the factory 7-plate clutch fitted as standard.
It uses different thickness plates to the earlier 6-plate clutch.
This might help.

...so is a better retrofit to a 79?
I mean, adding the clutch plate to the basket and letting all the other 79 stuff? or no enough space?

That is what the 7plate clutch kit does.

The later clutch housing had fiction material bonded on the back

The 7 plate kit has thinner plates to allow them to fit into a 6 plate housing and uses more and smaller friction pads
