I was checking my clutches, on my 05 M6 and found that the spring ajustment ring in the sencondary clutch was cross threaded and back off a ways from recommended. I have never messed with it before. So it was either done at the factory or backed out and popped a couple of threads on one side. I was able to take it out and clean the threads up and reinstall it, I put it in a little under .50" and drilled and tapped a small bolt in the outer plate to go in one of the holes in the ring to keep it from backing out again. This was recommended from the M7 thread on snowest fourms. Has anyone else heard of this or had it happen to them, and what did you do to fix it? Thanks

Mine was never cross threaded, it just seemed to be backed out all the way.

Lined up my pilot hole with one of the adjuster holes on the spring retainer-- there is no pressure put onto the spring retainer. The bolt simply acts as an anti-rotation device.

Anyways,
I drilled and tapped for a 1/4"NC cap screw, used blue loctite.
Initial preset for myself was 0.500"- from outer cover to the little raised lip on the retainer.


Ground various lengths of anti-rotation bolts in 0.050" increments for the tool kit.

Put just over 300kms on the sled this week- all seems well.
