To take off the old one, simply undo the screw at the end of the crankshaft (centre of the pinion bell). Should just slide off, slide the new one on and do up the screw again.

To undo the screw you will need to grip the flywheel, i use some large self locking plyers for this (just like a wrench). Same when putting screw on again.

I have big hands my technique is to remove the engine from the chassis so I can get a better hold on it. Put the grips on the flywheel back out the screw, remove the old clutchbell, take the ball bearing out and the roller bearing spacer etc. Make sure you don't lose any of the roller from the roller bearing! Put the bearings and the spacer in the order indicated on page 21 of your fusion instruction manual.Before you put your screw in put a little bit of lock tite on its tip so it does not vibrate out when your motor is running. Tighten the screw do securely. Put your motor back on the engine mounts, put a little locktite on the screws crank em back down. Now you are almost finish  because this is a different size clutchbell you will have to readjust gear mesh!! You do this by loosing up the motor mounts and moving the engine towards the front of the chassis adjust mesh so clutchbell does not bind with spur gears but spins freely.

Can i also just say, be careful removing the bell.

Use a hex driver if you have one, or if you have to use a allen key make sure it's a good one.

It seems all the screw heads on all schumachers screws seem soft and will strip. If you get a screw stuck on the end of the clutch bell you'd be in a very bad situation indeed.

If you are talking about right out of the box with no modification then the cen-cts-4 is the fastest.  But it is real slow on take off and needs about 600 feet to reach its top speed of 70mph. Also it  kinda hard to get parts for most, hobby shops here in the state don't carry cen cars. If you break something you are going to be down for days because you are going to have to order the part from the factory. My local hobbyshops carry schumacher cars and replacment parts .  The cen car has potential but it's company is suffering growing pains, needs better quality control on their products until that happens I am going to stick with schumacher.

Quote All you need is a pair of vice grips and needle-nosed pliers. Use the plieres to pull out the one way bearing, turn the bearing around leave enough of the bearing exposed so that you can grip it with the vice grip and use the other vice grip to back out the screw...and its done


Seems the best way
