    Problem with clutch side nut & SBT wrench

    so i'm trying to remove the clutch side nut but the Fing wrench that holds the washer to remove the nuts just deforms and walks around it. It's completely useless at this point and I need to finish this damn charger. My slip dropped 40 inch/lbs in about 1.5hrs too. WTF causes that

    Is there anything I can use right now to finish the job?

    Buy this and be done with the SBT crap tools! I've had mine for 3 yrs with MANY uses and no issues

    As for the quick fix, I've never tried.

    Thanks. I can't get my Fing charger back together because of one shitty tool. I'm pretty calm but the shit that was flying out of my mouth when it kept bending made the cat go hide.

    BTW I'm running McMasters in ()|()( with one shim and it read 112 inch lbs. I'm assuming something is to blame for this?

    When the cat hides, there's some shit going down!

    How about getting that tool straight, putting it on and then use your needle nose vise grips and clamp across the top near where the tool meets the washer? It imight give it some support, heat the end nut good too for less friction

    I tried the vice grips on both sides and no go Just too much of a POS. Looks like I'm screwed until the new tool comes in. At least I can still adjust my timing and swap in the SuperTech stuff.

    The first spring washer must face ) on the clutch washer or it will not work as the ID will bottom out on the shaft.

    A 24mm open-end wrench ground down works well.

    Are you using the new clutch washers/kit??if so then higher slip is harder to achieve than it was with the older kits...You will have to play with the spring washer configuration some.......BUT with the Mc masters AND a shim you should be higher than what you have....What do the clutches and gear look like/measure???how old are the Mc masters???I have heard the newer ones dont hold like the older ones...

    New style clutches and the McMasters have about 2 or 3 hours on them. I'll looks at everything but might need 2 shims and have to sand down the collar. hmmmm 24mm wrench.... Might have one if not I do have an adjustable I could spare

    I have that same set from ebay that you linked, and I have had problems with that tool. It is too thick for use on early SC's. I had to grind it down some to clear the sides.
