About 2 way drive clutch....

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello there,
I have 1/10 scale, 2 speed HSP nitro road car with vertex .18 engine....While running yesterday, she stopped suddenly and wouldn't advance, motor just revved on.....Looking at the undercarriage I noticed that the 2 way drive clutch was missing a set screw in one of the two holes, the gear closest to the drive clutch was quite wobbly as well....I unscrewed the setscrew from the other hole and found a spring in it...screwing it back in was difficult, it looks like the threads are damaged in both holes.....My question is can I simply replace the 2 way drive clutch, and does the whole tranny have to come out for this job?............funny thing, I just saw a photo of a tranny with the drive clutch, and it looked like the second hole didn't have a set screw in it....I'm confused, should the gear nearest the drive clutch be very loose compared the the other one?....help

Re: About 2 way drive clutch....

I think you can find a screw shape, but if you can't find it.

Here is a link for a 2-speed clutch.

and a complete centre Gear 2-speed.
