Re: Throw out arm travel

Itīs not that sensitive if you get a bit to much movement...just as long as you get enough.
Aim for the shortest lever in that pic and it should work.
Get the angle of the lever right.

Re: Who lightens flywheels? Looking for a shop

And getting mass to the center of flywheel does the same job...so hopefully there isnīt an 11" clutch on the flywheel you work with.
Just going from a 11" to a 9" does quite a bit to rotational mass.
