    For those that have changed their clutch.....

    Did most of you guys improvise and find ways around the $100 clutch tool?

    It's nice to have the clutch tool but honestly I used a broomstick in the impeller. lol If you tilt the ski way back on the trailer you can do it without draining the oil.

    I like the idea of not loosing oil and not having to clean up the mess, but the broomstick ..................... thats just plain f$cking rough !

    You could always remove the tailcone and use a socket on the bolt!
    How would you remove the s.c. wheel without the gear tool?
    A broomstick! How would that change the blades, that is what i would be concerned about!

    It won't mess with a Skat, but possibly a stock prop. You can remove the nose cone, put a ratchet on the nut behind it, and let it rest against the rideplate to stop the motor from turning over. Hey I didn;t say my way was best, just saying that's how I did it last minute when I had to leave the next day for Mudbug. lol
