Primary clutch help

Hey fellas, I have an 05 F7 and my rollers in my primary clutch are shot. One of them has a flat spot because the set pin can loose on the weight. Can I replace just the rollers in the primary or do I need to buy a whole new clutch. What tools are required to do this repair? I'm assuming I'll need some type of spider tool....I've worked on clutches but never separated the spider... ThAnks

Yes, but I believe when you look at the clutch breakdown on a F 7 the spider is only offered as a complete assembly. I used part #'s for pins and rollers from a ZR clutch. I have part #'s at home if you are interested.

Keep in mind you will need a way to secure the clutch to the bench, a special tool to remove the spider, a roll pin punch, and a torch to heat the spider.

It has been awhile, but I don't believe there is a significant savings in rebuilding the spider as opposed to buying a new one.

If you shop around you can get a brand new spider for $130-$140. Believe me, once you get that clutch apart you WILL find more that needs replacing. You can buy a spider rebuild kit but they are $100+. You will most likely trash one or two of the pucks taking them out so the whole new spider is a good option if you plan on keeping the sled. You will absolutely need a clutch holder ($35) and the spider removal tool ($80) -spider is torqued to 250 ft. lbs.!!!- if you don't already own those tools. And I almost forgot, you'll need the socket for the spider nut ($30).

yup, might as well figure replacing all of them.

Replace the spring too.

Yeah take it in. My local cat dealer did mine for like 185 OTD. Its hardly worth the hassle for the few bucks you could save if you did have the tools.

finding the rebuild parts is getting hard. Plus you need all the tools, a good vise, and a good set of torches to get it apart. I would just buy a new one from ken's or country cat's over stock site.
