Savage plastic spur..

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have stripped a couple of plastic spurs on my savage 25. I have it meshing properly and was just wondering if anyone has any advice on how to avoid this or what are some possible problems i could fix...

th savage SS 4.6 has this problem and its caused by weak clutch springs. they let the clutch shoes rub on the clutchbell too much and that heats it up and melts the spur. so try changing the clutch springs, also check the chassis for warping.

I have a savage 4.6 from when they first cam out, I run my truck hard and have never never wrecked a spur.. even when I slamed into the ground nose first and the motor moved forward and was rubbibg the spur....

make sure your spur moves smoth, and the shaft the spur is mounted on is not bent, even a few mm off can cause a bad mesh....

to solve the clutch shoes from rubbing you can add a thin spacer under each of the clutch shoes, make sure the bearing on the clutch bell are still OK and make sure the clutch bell spins freely .....
You can drive a fast truck slow, but you can't drive a slow truck fast!
