Here is my 50 Special 1981. I pay for it a little price and then do some rebuild and now it alive again.
I changed a lot of engine parts, suspension parts & chassis parts.
But now I need help with a clutch.
What I do:
-New push rod kit
-New clutch lever
-New clutch cable
-New adjusting screw
-Use the Castrol Manual EP 80W-90 Gear Box oil
Then I adjust the clutch and go for a first ride.
After ride I noticed that with the clutch lever fully pressed and the any gear engaged, the clutch does not fully open and the scooter tries to go forward. If I hold it with my feet or brakes, it can stall, so I need to constantly open the throttle a little & listen to the sound of the clutch slipping.
So I try to adjust clutch again, but nothing came of it.
Either the clutch slipped when the clutch lever was pressed or the kickstarter slipped when the clutch lever was released while trying to start the engine
Then I changed to new actuation lever.
But the problem remained - I still canít properly adjust the clutch release. Or something I do not understand and this is a normal situation?
Maybe somebody here can help me?
P.S. Sorry for my bad english.
