the clutch bolt was roughly 1.5 inches below the spring mount and about 3/4" too long. the buggy is an early 90's carryall i think. it has a jakes 6" spindle lift kit. i removed the transaxle and engine cradle to fit and align the clutches and belt. i only had to redrill the mounting plate and left the original vibe isolation in place. i looked at moving it forward but decided there wasnt enough clearance in the front to allow it plust modifying the engine cradle looked like...well ...less desireable. i finally decided to pull the transaxle out and move the spring perches over an inch to give me the clearance i need.

im a glutton for punishment too because i went ahed and ordered the 8:1 gears...since the darn thing is on the bench already...

it will be interesting to see how your brake cables line up. fwiw the ausco disc brakes remove the stock backing plate and the cable mounts right to the brake actuating lever...

yeah...I know the passenger side cable is going to be tight. I did a prelim check and it "seemed" like it was going to be okay. The way things are going with this...I'm expecting to back myself into a corner somehow...

btw...thanks for all the tips and pics everyone! I appreciate the support. I did talk to Tom and CPP and he said the roller clutch isn't any shorter, just bigger in diameter.

Good call...the passenger cable wasnt going to work in it's original location. I relocated the cable inboard. The cable clevis now clears the axle ubolt but I'm going to have to extend the brake actuation lever a couple of inches to get the right angle and stroke.





Also had to relocate and shorten the transaxle torque link. Probably had to shorten it because I removed some material from the spring perches when I relocated them

Re-drilled and slotted the engine mounting plate and re-mounted and re-aligned the clutches.





An interesting note...the final engine plate slots line up with the original slots with the exception of being moved forward. I'm not sure I have the belt tight enough though. It compares with an old, original, worn belt on another buggy. I get about 2.25" movement when pushed down. Might have to go with a shorter belt if possible...I think the one I have is a 2211 and I have no idea what the numbers mean. I imagine a small change in length makes a big change in tension.

while you have it this far, why don't you just swap the brake backing plates left to right. that will put the actuators on top. also has the effect of lenghtening the cables. wich may be a length issue on your drivers side depending on your lift and the moved axle? you would have to fab a new mount for the cable, but that shouldn't be too hard...

yours may be to close to the spring for that though?

I'm pretty sure newer carts have the brake cable mount and the spring clamp plate integrated as one unit. however i couldn't find a good picture of this in my collection

That was a good idea but like you said...no room because of the lift blocks.
