Is there a different procedure for adjusting a Watts clutch. Mine seems to engage properly but slips when you put the power to it. Thanks, Dennis
No Try turning the adjusting screws in a 1/2 turn.
The only part of that clutch I remember on Michael Seagers T is the drive plate shafts going through the plate required 90 thou ground off for use. There is a distance I would have to look up from two points for proper finger adjustment. A socket of the right diameter was used for that adjustment something like 13/16". His T has good power and does not slip.
I just installed a Watts clutch in my 1912. I also installed Kevlar lining and a new clutch spring.
After driving about 100 miles I noticed a slight slipping from low to high. I did the afore mentioned 1/2 turn inwards on the 3 clutch adjusting screws. Problem solved and now excellent contact going into high gear.
I had to re-adjust mine after about 50 miles. Have now done about 3000 miles including hilly country and have had no problems
Thanks for your responses. I went the wrong way the first time and guess what, that doesn't work, I went the right way and there is joy in Mudville. Thanks again.
Don't drop the cotter pins...

Dennis -- You might need to adjust it a couple of times while it gets broken in, but after that it will be good for thousands of miles.
