A dished washer like that would normally go under a main securing nut, in your case it looks to small.

What is your experience KevTx with slipper clutch sliding uppn that center ax.
That TSS I've bought don't slips easy upon the ax, I don't wanna destroy that ax I even doubt I can get it back off when it finally sits into place :(
another problem, I had my share this week.
Send mail to importer he didn't reply.

I have a STM slipper & it did fit snug, I can pull it on & off by hand, it is a tight machine fit.

Have you degreased/washed the parts to be fitted, many parts are coated with a form of corrosion protection as the parts sit on the shelf for a undisclosed time. Once washed oil lightly & see if it is still tight.

yesterday I spent 3hours trying to fit that slipper clutch upon the clutch axis.
No can do, there must something serious wrong with the tolerance of that slipper clutch.
...with normal manpower without using hamers etc :? this is about the best position this clutch fits.
the washer still have to get in place so the center bolt can not be bolted.

removing then is another story, had to make a special tool to release the slipper clutch from the axe.
Decided to end all efforts, contacted the supllier and let him figure it out.
That TSS slipper clutch just don't fit with normal handling. I'm glad I did not take my hammer and rammed it up the axis, it could never be released again. This shit cost me enough already :x

Do others have the same problem with installing, looked like a pretty straight forward task to me, NOT!
