Got something better? Post it haha

Drink beer, pulling the clutch apart.

Kinda dirty, but ive had worse.

So cleaning and putting back together.

Removing starter gear for less rotational mass. Should maybe bug my machinist buddy to take some material out, kinda like the race clutch while im at it. Haha

Looks like someone did some balancing on this clutch. Or is that factory?

Wasn't dissing your sled there, just concerned with the inappropriate use of alcohol. PBR FTW too! Been my go-to affordable beer for years now.

Put some engine cleaner to.the old rez rocket and shes lookin mint
maybe bearing buddy or re-pack with ISO while clutch is off? Impact driver to get them bolts out, they can be a total beotch after all the heat cycles. pulled many ring gears off and never had an issue with vibration but they are balanced as a unit on so just something to keep an eye on if you feel any new vibration. Get the updated spring cup rebuild kit, and either 413 or 415 ramps if you don't got them already.
