I'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.

I ordered FS clutch from recommendations here.
You can find it at ddm. I'm waiting for 2 to arrive. It was on sale a few days ago for $21.00 ea,so I bought 2. It's normally $35.00 ea. I also have a Tourex clutch. Not used yet though.

I just finished changing front end to alloy and came here and saw pictz. Mine looks similar to his,great minds think alike or close to it anyway.

First time in over a month been able to do some work on it. Sadly health issues.

Any help in finding part,lmk.
Thanks all.😎
It's not hard mounted,test fitting it together. Trying to decide on colored screws and bolts.
Also have full alloy rear to change over. Luckily I had full set of alloy front and rear so I might as well put it on something- right?.😊

You'll be happy with the fs just remember to scuff up your bell a bit before install. Helps it break in faster.
