I don't have a pilot shaft. How can I install the clutch assembly?

I have made them from broom handles. These universal tools are around $28 don't know if it will go small enough. Measure your shaft and grind the broom handle on your emery wheel or lathe if you can find a wood worker. GW has made lots of them I think.

I put one together loose, and then tightened it after assembled, works but a little tedious. I later went to an auto supply place, and got a $4.95 plastic alignment tool. They had one that would fit the pilot bushing, but not the splines, so I stuck it in a drill, and turned it against a grinder until I had it worn down enough to go through the disk. It didn't fit the plines, but all thet was needed was for it to hold the disk centered, slipping into splines wasn't critical.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
