Arrow Comet Clutch Rebuild

Hay guys, I just finished rebuilding my Comet 4-Pro clutch. It was a bugger to get off the engine. I bent 2 pullers! I repaired the factory puller and with a hammer rap and some heat, it flew off, hitting the trailing arm. The clutch hasn't been off, since is was new in 2007. There was rust holding it on.
I was amazed that there wasn't much wear. The fly weight bushings, were loose but not to bad. Even the buttons weren't that badly worn. I'm kinda ticked, because I think I could've run it for a few more years. The only thing that concerned me was the pivot bolt nuts, were loose. I used red lock tight on the new bolts and nuts and on the spider threads. Blue lock tight on the cap bolts. The spider will take some heat, to get it off.
After a weekends riding I always lube the clutch. I use Comet dry lube. I give a light spray to the rollers, fly weight pivots and the faces of the button guides. It was caked, all over inside the bushings. It was doing a better job, than I thought.
Mike @ RRP, got me the rebuild kits, so I put in all the new bushings, buttons, pins, bolts and nuts and rollers. The faces of the weights had a few dimples in them, from the rollers. I used a diamond file to smooth them out and deburr the edges. Lacquer thinner will remove the dried Comet lube.

I think this is proof, to me, that the dry lube works. I would recommend that using it on the Comet and the Team Clutches. I believe its still available, if not LPS makes a Moly-lube that is similar.

Re: Comet Clutch Rebuild

How bad was the center main bushing? Mine seems to have quit a bit of play in it. Everything else seems to be good. I also use the dry moly lube on mine regularly. Good to know it is working well.

Re: Comet Clutch Rebuild

I've had my clutches on and off a few times and it always was a bear until I started applying a real old and thick wheel bearing grease on the shaft as a sealer. I Inhereted this from my Father and it's old, thick and fairly sticky. I apply conservatively and just use it as a sealer of sorts. Once tightened down I have no concerns about slippage.

Re: Comet Clutch Rebuild

Thanks rrawtry.
A friend of mine, did a lot of snowmobiling and he told me to put a light film of anti-seize.
That should work to seal it, like the grease you're using.

Re: Comet Clutch Rebuild

Tested the rebuilt clutch yesterday. I blasted up the street, turned around and came back home.
2 minutes later, as I was tying it down, on the trailer, the Cops arrived. ( insert Bad Boy song here)
I guess, I upset a neighbor. Oooops.
No tickets, just a talk'n to.

But on the plus side, the clutch works great!





PS; The Cops liked the Revolt.

Re: Comet Clutch Rebuild

Just a heads up on the bolt that holds the clutch on. Check the torque on it after about 10 minutes of driving time. They seem to need tightening. Just ask Klemdotter about the one that got away!

Re: Comet Clutch Rebuild

Just thought i would post how i got my clutch off. It was a stuck little buggar after 3 years. So before applying heat which i did not want to do i tried a little patience.

I removed the main bolt soaked the inside and back side with nutcracker (let the jokes fly). Ran the puller in with an impact at 100psi. Let it sit loaded for 1 hour, came back and hit it again with nut nutcracker and impact again just until it stopped moving. Let it sit another hour. Nothing. Pulled the puller out and soaked internally, put the main bolt back in and torque it. Then reinstalled the puller and reapplied the torque with the impact. Again 100psi. Let it sit 1 hour again and impacted again. Came back 1 hour later and low and behold it was popped loose.

We have all seen the weed that has forced it's way through the 3" of asphalt. I applied the same principle. Constant force and time. Something has to give. Luckily it was the clutch. Hope this will help someone in the future.

Re: Comet Clutch Rebuild

Hey Todd,
Since you'll be mating a different clutch, get a tube of valve leaping compound and lap the two surfaces together. Clean it off godd and be sure and use either grease or anti seize when you put it back on asa sealer. I bought a cheap two type( course and fine ) at OReilly's.
