Compressed air to blow out the internals


Rubbing alcohol + scotchbrite or shop rag on the sheave faces


If you pull the weights out, check the bushings in the weights:


and check that the rollers on the spider are rolling freely and don't have any flat spots.

Rubbing alcohol works great. Rubber gloves and acetone work great on the clutch faces too.

Issue I have with acetone and other aggressive cleaners is they can take the paint/markings off the springs... that's good info to have when you're switching parts out.

Probably not real good for some of the bushings in there either.

All you really need is a carrier to help the rubber come off... even water will work, but alcohol flashes off faster.

That's why I recommend using it on the clutch face, not the internals.

Bushings do not like agressive cleaners. Soapy water and a toothbrush work awesome.
