Adjusting the secondary

Has anyone played with adjusting the secondary. I noticed the allen screw with the lock nut on it. I was wondering what it does. Does it adjust the spring pressure for shift points? What is the affect of adjusting it, in/out?

Re: Adjusting the secondary

It adjusts the tension on the belt by opening and closing the inside sheave. I adjust my belts by the tension method and not the distance past the outside edge method in the books....

Re: Adjusting the secondary

What is the "tension" method? I didn't see that one in the book.

ME TOO, it is not in there.Can the tension system of adjustment help with engagement as well?Does it burn out the clutch faces by chance?

Re: Adjusting the secondary

Sorry folks been out of it a bit. I call the tension method setting the belt tension by deflection only without the measurement above the secondary. I like to set my belt until it just starts squealing when the tranny is engaged at idle and then backing off a bit just until the squeal just stops. This definately helps with engagement by keeping the belt tighter. It's a little tougher on belts, but in my opinion and experience, not much. I've never burned up a belt doing this, but I change my belt frequently, just to keep it fresh anyway.

You can put different colered spring in the secondary and you can gain a 1000 rpm

There is a second threaded hole adjacent to the belt adjusting allen bolt and lock nut. It is 1/4"-20 thread. You need to screw in a cap screw that is threaded beyond what is normal for a shouldered bolt and dog nose the end of it. Screw it into the hole and it will push the secondary clutch faces apart and the belt will come loose and you be able to take it off easy.

Call me and I can explain in more detail. I am going to be making some more of the tools (bolts) for changing the belts and will have a few on hand.
