Default 600 Fusion Clutch

Hey everyone, so here's my small dilemma, I have almost 8k miles on my fusion, and my clutches have NOT been touched. I don't have a clutch puller tool to get my primary off and don't have the time to go get one. Just wondering if there was any way of checking if my clutches need tuned or fixed. My tech at work suggested getting some break cleaner and spraying that on the weights and rollers to clean it up a bit, any other suggestions? Any help is greatly appreciated.

My guess is with that mileage your spring is probably pretty toast. You can remove the primary clutch cover by removing the clutch bolt then have someone hold the cover in while you remove the bolts, slowly release the cover, (under spring weight) and you can inspect or replace the spring and check your weights.
Tighten your clutch bolt to 50 ft/lb for 600HO

Secondary comes off easier, don't loose any washers and put back the same way... you will need a clutch compressor tool and a good snap ring pliers to get to your spring

Real simple, you can replace both springs in under an hour

If I just take the cover off, will I still have good enough access that I can inspect and clean and be good for the rest of the season, and replace in the spring?

Yep...you can change the spring, remove and clean your weights...all in the primary clutch

The secondary probably should be changes also, like I posted earlier, a little more difficult but with a way to compress the spring to get the snap ring off it's real easy. Rotating the helix off can be somewhat different also...someone might post a shortcut to getting off, you kinna have to twist the sheaves to get off...kinna

Good Luck

While your in there check out your carb adapters, look at mine

I had those replaced 4 years ago, and again 2 years ago when my engine was rebuilt (Crank and top end) I've done all regular maintenance and take extremely good care of my toys. I've just never done a clutch and decided I should probably inspect it before I do a poker run this weekend. Anything I should look for specifically? I haven't had any problems engaging or my sled randomly taking off like my dad's fusion when he had it. Haven't had my clutches stick or anything unusual that I've noticed.

However, I have a buddy who has a 600 CFI and for some reason he is able to walk me like I'm stopped. I have 22/40 gearing and a can, he has just a can and walker evans all around. Still doesn't seem right how he can take me.

Okay, so after about 5+ hours tampering it and being between jobs, my buddy got it off for me. I'm going to take it into work tomorrow and have my tech inspect it. Just curious, what would be the best clutch setup for my 22/40 gearing? I want to get this thing to stand up on command some more and would really like some good clutching to go along with it. Who makes the best clutch kits?

I'm thinking about maybe just getting a new spring and weights, what does going lower in weights do vs going higher? I think stock weights are 62 gram weights?

Leave your weight alone unless you know they are heavier than 62 grams. read all the Fuse 600 threads in the stickey. All your ?'s are answered there.

I took my primary into work today, took it apart, and holy shit. Weights are sloppy as hell, the c clip that stops the jam nut from fully coming out was floating around due to the outter clutch plate being being ruined. My tech hooked me up with some brand new weights, new spring and new jam nut and is putting it back together for me. I owe him a case of beer haha, pretty good if you ask me.
