Default Wraith Slipper Clutch Assembly

I'm after some advice... I'm assembling the slipper clutch on my Wraith and found one of the two metal washers is a stiff fit on the shaft. The result is a free spinning flywheel because the stiff washer prevents the clamping effect on the flywheel. This is my first build so I'm slightly concerned I may be misunderstanding how the slipper clutch should work and/or making a schoolboy error in the assembly? Or should both washers simply slide on to the shaft and I should file out the centre a little to free it up?

Are you talking about the spur (big gear connected to motor via pinion) and slipper plates (pressed against the spur on both sides)? The plates are keyed so they spin together with the shaft. The spur gear should be free to spin until you crank down the nut on the end of the shaft.

Mine is different to the illustration. As it happens I pushed the tight washer on first and the loose one on the spring side and it seem to have done the trick.

In my case I have: nut > spring > (loose) large metal washer > stick on facings > drive wheel > stick on facing > (tight) arge metal washer (up against a drive housing component).

Thanks for replying in any case.

Do you have a picture of how you're assembling it ?

You have a dual slipper clutch and you're doing it wrong.

Diagram of dual slipper shows just like you described it, so it's assembled just fine.
If that outer slipper disk was tight on the shaft it'd give you those symptoms, as you've found it works with the tight one on the inside.
truth is neither should be tight on the shaft, snug, not loose & sloppy either, but not tight.
Give it a quick lick with a file next time it's apart.

Yes, that's the one. Never realised it was a dual slipper clutch (it's all new to me). I managed to ease it a little before fitting it but don't really have a suitably shaped file. One for the shopping list and, as you say, a task for when it's next apart.

Cheers.
