    It's probably up in the air anyway if the motor is up for sale anyway.
    is it better to run a even number of springs than an odd number

    It's just the total amount of spring pressure that is applied to the pressure plate when you release the clutch. I personally like to try and space the pressure as evenly as I can, but a 250R has only 5 springs as well so rarely will I have an even number.



    I would like to design an 8 fingered clutch lockup plate, with 4 fingers one length and 4 fingers a different length. Dont know if it could all be fit under a traditional lockup cover, but The more adjustment areas you have the better.



    Mark, you need to decide if your really going to sell that thing or not.

    Ok gave up trying to sell the motor etc. So Brian if it will make things better and easier which clutch do i need to buy comlete hinson 8 plate with standard lockup? Or what will work best for me and you knowlegde to help me tune it ? When i put this engine together i want what i need in it so i'm willing to sell or trade the 10plate off and buy what you think i need,will work the best, and you can help me with. Just let me know. Thats all i'm needing and my new tires. Thanks Mark



    Jay why so much trouble with installing the lockup thats easy like Brian said just wiggle the arms as you tighten the bolts evenly.

    i found out what the problem was the pressure plate was not seating on the inner hub like it suppose to....im a beginner with this [censored]

    slowly learning here and there...but i finally lined it up with the marks on the pressure plate and inner hub....after that i walked away from

    it feeling dumb lol....i will put it on tonight after it cools off a lil bit...hopefully that was the problem
