    If you have the center clutch nut too tight the boss will drag on the outter clutch basket. If you have notching on the outter basket from the plates this will cause drag also. In the case of the R, bleeding the slave properly will help. T.L.

        The system probably needs to be bled. You'll need to do a lot to get it right, just keep at it until it works right. That fixes most of them.

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."
