    series 30 clone TC

    Anyway to make the driver clutch engage at a lower RPM? Weaker springs? My "Jimmy Gote" seems to need more RPM to engage than I would like. Seems to have plenty of power to handle it. Any ideas? Mine is an Ebay Chinese series 30 clone. I checked my center to center spacing and I might be 1/8 to a 1/4 wider than it called for. That do it?

    A lot of youtube videos on this. In the enclosed link look at the Spring Installation Instructions section.

    Thanks, I did a search here first and didn't find what I wanted. Did a Google and found some springs. Safe to assume the Comet are the same as the clones?

    Ok, got the weaker black springs. With them it wants to run away at idle. So put one stock spring, one black spring and all seems pretty good. Not sure how long a mixed set of springs will last. Good news, I got another set just like them as back up.
