    Stick to the original clutch. I have very little problems with mine.
    Give me a hammer and some duct tape and I can fix it!

      Take the plastic stop blade guide of the back of the original clutch....it helps it to run better.

      I gently put the plate in a vise, and use a cold chisel to knock the rivets off the plastic ring.

        If you set up your distributors up correctly, that plastic guide will act as a brake to keep the index levers from indexing a pin if the distributor is not at the next position yet. This reason alone, is why I do not use the dist belts that grip the pin.

        If the pin is ready to index and the dist is not at the next position I want the pin to slip on the belt. (not go over the index levers while they are in the up position)

        This is necessary if two pins happen to get too close together from improper orientation.

          In my opinion i think dist. belts that have more grab helps your dist.trip better,so i desided to try these rough top belts from JCP,man i did'nt know what was going on,i installed one of those belts on tuesday and wednesday the pins and pindeck was black,well comes to find out because we use offense oil it adds some kind of chemical reaction and breaks the belt down.Has this happened to anyone else?And what is up with those plastic u-joints they suck!!.....Anyways as far as clutches a think the originals are the way to go also [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

                I agree.....AMF machines = AMF Parts, JCP does not fit in the equasion.

                  AMF Parts = Unneeded expense.

                  Many of the aftermarket parts we get are better designed, or more durable, or easier to work on, etc... I do use JCP for some things, as well as Vantage, AMF, Eastern, Stahl's/Tuffy, and even locally-purchased industrial parts. Start comparing prices of parts, and you'll find that in many cases, an AMF part is not the cheapest, nor the best part for the job.
