Ok,got my brake and wheel sorted on my 1969 Thunderbolt. Now I have moved to the clutch. I could not get the clutch to free up enough to shift into neutral with the motor running. I pulled the clutch and found out why. There are well worn fibers and a few slighly warped steels. That's easy enough to fix. While I'm there, I have a leak at the final drive sprocket so I have to pull the clutch basket. I guess that means the stator and windings too along with the motor sprocket. Any hints to make the job go smoothly? I figured on bolting a steel and a fiber plate together to lock the clutch hub to the basket to remove the nut. I have a few service manuals...a Clymer and a Haynes...but they're a little vague. I have an original on order and hope that's a little more complete. The others presuppose a knowledge of British bikes that I don't have yet.

You will need the clutch tool to get the centre off.
It screws into the threaded part of the centre hard, then you nip the bolt up and give it a whack.
Don't try and use it as a puller,it will strip the threads.

Oddly enough, when I use to lowest setting on my ratle gun the hubs usually pop off before the puller is fully tight

Put a rag in the bottom of the case and on the shop floor before you loosen the clutch hub. Those loose roller bearings have a habit of bouncing off into Oblivion when the clutch basket is pulled off.

Some years back I made a simple tool to deal with the issue of errant rollers:

At one time I had some images of the tool in use, but I can't find them so I'll just have to describe it.

1. Attach clutch hub puller as usual and pop the clutch free of the taper.

2. Leave the puller in place, and drop the tool over it as shown:

3: Tighten the thumbscrews against the hub. At this point, the hub and basket are locked together and you can remove the whole thing as an assembly and move it to the bench without dribbling rollers all around your shop.
