cart parts has 2 different pricing levels...............i was also gonna mention lvssales its easier for the average person to buy from and while some people don,t like dealing with them some of their prices for OEM parts can,t be touched by anyone else..............if you can,t get one let me know if i ride up camp i,ll grab it and mail it to you and when your done just return it............if you break it send me a new one but i have never seen one break............................................. ......8)

Take The Bolt Out And Pump The Bolt Hole Full Of Grease Then Put The Clutch Puller In And Hit It A Few Times With A Impact Wrench And It Will Come Right Off

I'm just starting to tackle the removal of the Drive Clutch. It seemed earlier in this thread that ScottyB back-peddled about the "Left Handed Threads" controversy, but according to the red ring on my '01 CC DS, he was 100% correct....

I know this thread is really, really old but I was having an issue removing my bolt (it was stuck) and came across this thread. Well I figured I had found the problem since the threads were "left hand", and did not read the entire thread since I though I found the issue.

Well, after stripping the head of the bolt, breaking a ratchet and finally welding a socket to the bolt and re-reading the entire thread I saw that it was later determined the threads are normal and it is lefty loosey and righty tighty! LOL

For future carters, could you remove that post so no one else runs into the same thing! John

Re: Removing Drive Clutch
 
I can see where there may be some confusion with which way the drive clutch retaining bolt gets removed,
So... here's a little clarification on Club Car drive clutch retaining bolts!

From 1996 to 1997, Club Car changed the rotation of the engine from counter clockwise... to clockwise! :roll:
and the drive clutch retaining bolt threads must be opposite of the engine rotation in order for it to not spin itself loose!

1985 to 1996 (counter clockwise engine rotation) ~ Standard SAE (or right hand) threads.
1997 to the present (clockwise engine rotation) ~ Reverse (or left hand) threads.

So technically, Scottyb was correct with left hand threads on his 2000 CC! and his post will not be removed. :wink:

You need to keep in mind of the year of your Club Car in order for you to determine which way your drive clutch retaining bolt will remove!

The drive clutch "Puller" uses a different set of threads, and is standard SAE (right hand) threads on all years.
The driven clutch has a key, and is not pressed on like the drive clutch, so that bolt will also be standard SAE threads for all years.

Hope this helps!
