          That little pinwheel clutch is the coolest thing to ever happen the 30s.
          Old School 8230 guys will miss the 'SNAP...SNAP' when they fire up the league for practice.

            I installed clutch and kidneys 2 years back there is some thing I have learned to make them work they make the machine a lot quieter if you put the kidneys on.

            If your pin counter is on top the distributor you will have to move them back toward the pan about 2” so the pin elevator will disengage sooner to stop double pin feeds.
            I Alter the original counter bracket by cutting them at 22 degree top and bottom flipping
            side pieces over and weld at a offset of 2”.

            I made part of the kidneys out of the pip ring off the back of pin elevator.
            On the top end of the kidneys I put a adjustable rod that can be sled in or out of the pip
            to make the adjustment easer on the pin to pan feed.

            All chassis I ran a wire from output on T1 transformer to spare contacts on PR1 relay to J38 put the rectifier in switch box on back of machine.
            I have 24vdc and 95vdc clutches. On the machine that have 24vdc clutch on them move wire in J box from J9 to J38.

            When they are adjusted the clutch set up work very good.
