The past few times I ran my maxx I noticed that the spur gear was seemingly binding up. Upon further inspection, I found that it wasn't the spur, but the clutch. What was happening was that the crank bolt behind the clutch shoes has a lip at the base, so when I would take a couple passes the clutch pads would open and when close again, wouldn't seat flush against the flywheel, thus causing the pads to rub against the bell. So I took the pads off and bevelled the the inside edge. Problem solved. This was driving me crazy because I would have to keep the idle a little higher and tune lean to keep the truck running because the engine was under load.

Thanks.
