What vehicle is it? Is the spur steel?

I tend to seek out hardened bells as they tend to last longer with plastic and are kind of required if you have steel spurs. I found that out the hard way...


That was a hardened spur against a standard bell... one tank.

hi thanks for your reply. The car is a hsp bug crush and yes it looks like that but do you know what parts I need and how to stop it happening again.
thanks

Which one specifically? They have a few. I'd hate to suggest parts and find out your using a different scale truck.

It looks like you have your shims too loose. From the pic I see a lot of "play" on the Male end outside the bell. It may be the picture but it should have a hairs worth of room left for heat expansion. Make sure your gear mesh is

Looks like this " ll " and not like this " l/ " and your biggest problem is the poor quality bell. Whenever you see that copper/bronze color like that, never get it again! That's a softer metal. Good luck.

You would need to take the engine out an inspect the clutches & clutch bell bearings ,sense the bell gear is trash ,
then I would make sure that you replace the bearings as well along with the bell gear ,also ,it would be a good idea
to purchase a shim kit for the clutchbell!

Agreed... decent bearings and a shim kit are essential.

A shim kit will eliminate any slop or tightness on the bearings that can cause friction & heat an premature bearing
failure ,it also keeps the inside of the bell from riding on the clutch shoe holder pins!

Here is a link to show you what they are ,you can us this link for purchase or you can find your own!
