Thank you very muchI'm running the 4 shoe Lauterbacher off road clutch. 4 turns out from fully tightened engages at about 8k RPM, 2 turns puts it at 9500 RPM. I can't comment on the 3 shoe, but I would likely start at 4 turns and adjust up or down depending on how high an RPM you want it to engage. Make sure you are adjusting all tension screws equally.
I drilled a hole in the top of my engine clutch housing in order to get an allen key in there without removing the clutch for adjustment. I can just pull on the pull start a couple inches at a time to rotate the clutch a quarter turn to adjust each screw.
I'll post pics of the hole in the housing if you would like to try that route.
