Release lever for clutch

Postby Husk8806 » Sun Apr 10, 2022 5:08 pm

One of my 3 release levers for the clutch are not lined up with the other two. Off by about 1/16. How I overlooked this before idk. But when I ordered rebuild kit from Hamilton Bob same thing happened. The plate isn't warped. Really don't wan a buy a new plate. Is there something I'm not catching?

Perhaps a pin or a spring is broken?
This is what mine looked like last year. The pin had moved so it was only attached on one side.

Nope. As I said I got a rebuild kit from Hamilton. Springs, pins, levers are all new. Even did a comparison of the old parts to new and don't see anything. Probably just gonna need a new plate I guess.

Repulled it apart rechecked the specs one of the metal brackets I guess you'd call it that holds the lever, the pieces that actually bolt to the flywheel was made at a slight angle. Very slight, not noticeable and not noticeable while not bolted on. Once bolted that's when it became uneven. Just used one of the old ones. Really only needed the new springs and levers.
