Re: Increase Clutch Spring Pressure
In my case the slave was not bottomed out and the disc was still "inside" the wear limit but close to the edge. All my slip was caused by disc thickness being so thin (and a tiny bit of engine oil from the o-ring). This was always a 5th gear forced slip that could only be done once per attempt interval of 20 minutes or so before I could induce it again.
While I don't disagree with Dave's assertion, I don't think there would be much to be gained by shimming the slave. I believe the spring has a finite limit to what it can compress on disc thickness, slave or no slave present.
