Default 86 Columbia Par Car gas primary clutch plate cracked

My clutch plate is cracked. I'm wondering 2 things: can it be welded? Is there a low cost replacement clutch that would work like this one : https://www.google.com/aclk?sa=L&ai=...g&dct=1&adurl=
Thanks.

Welp, for anyone who cares, I welded the crack carefully and rotated so there was no weight on the cracked flange that could wear funny and jam. Hopefully it works out.

Hope it works out for you. I too would like to know if there are any clutch alternatives to the very expensive “new old stock” oem clutches…if you can find them. (Mine is a ‘94 and the secondary is rough to look at but seems to function ok)

Now that the plate is no longer flexing along the crack, it works but it's a little too tight on startup. Trying to figure out how to adjust it now.

Sorry about the lack of response. I have welded those flanges before. Try to pass to make sure that you keep things in balance even if it means adding a spot of two of weld on the clutch opposite of where the crack was.

As far as adjusting, I don't recall anything being adjustable on these clutches. You may have to source a belt that is 1/2 or an inch longer OR one that is list a little bit thinner. This isn't an easy task but there are a few sites out there that will allow you to buy belts by size and not application. For example, I have a tractor that has am OEM belt that's 1/2 in x 75 inches. For whatever reason, the belt kept slipping so I was able to get a belt that was 1/2 in x 74 inches. Things have been fine since.

Did you ever have any success finding a replacement clutch?

The primary clutch plate 36578-82C is available from my buddy Brian at Kraft. They started getting a lot of the old gas parts made again to keep the gas carts going. Sells for 392.
