*** REVISED INSTRUCTIONS***
Now, with 100% less stupidity, at no extra cost!
This trick was posted previously in other forums, but I just became aware of it this week, thanks to 'peaceofwork'.
- remove clutch cover
- remove all clutch spring bolts, leaving springs in place
- install (1) standard 6mm flat washer on the bolts, and re-install.
- THE WASHER MUST BE NO MORE THAN .060 IN DEPTH
- THE WASHER MUST FIT INSIDE THE SPRING
- THE WASHER CAUSES THE SPRING BOLT TO BOTTOM SOONER, COMPRESSING THE SPRING LESS.
- BE CAREFUL not to over torque these bolts. 5ftlbs is plenty
- re install clutch cover (don't over torque these either
Take care when re-installing the spring bolts, as they have a greater tendency to cross thread with the washer in place.
As you can see the new 'revised' washer size is small enough to fit inside the spring
Below, the spring/bolt combination on the left is tighted all the way down (stock)
The spring/washer/bolt combination on the right is also tightened all the way down, and sits up higher.
Picture still shows the INCORRECT washers have yet to be removed from the remaining springs........
