It looks like a tool to prevent slippage, however, the allen bolt that screws into the threaded part of the clutch spring nut would probably interfere with the studs on the clutch centre....

The Clutch:
It can be very frustrating just getting the spring nuts to start on the studs. The stong(er) clutch springs just want to bend and cock the spring nut over. With this tool, you screw it onto the nut and use a 14mm socket on the hex to get the thread started. See picture:

I'll buy one.

I really hate that job. Always seems to take me about 30 mins. No matter how good a job I've made of whatever I've had the clutch off for, I'm always totally peed off by the time I've struggled to get the nuts started.

Count me in!

I have made this available on Shapeways, it is cheaper on there (sintered from Stainless Steel) than any quote that I got for machining...
The screw is a standard part, I have these that I can send to anyone that orders.

Not strong enough - correct
Eats his greens - sometimes
Never smokes - hardly
Never drinks - err, well, err, actually ...

Ian, I fear that the thread around your claim to be Bristol's answer to Charles Atlas, may find us being moved by the Moderator. Not sure where we will be put ? <201 <214 . . . . <928

Having returned from Skane, I am surprised that we dont have a "Tall Tales" part of the forum. Rather than being Charles Atlas, I suspect Ian of being the Incredible Hulk, you won't like him when he is angry <910
