1961 Falcon 87 AMC Clutch Springs

Post  Foggy on Fri Aug 07, 2015 9:37 am

Hoping someone out there can help. Our 1961 Falcon 87 with the 20T AMC engine has a broken clutch spring. The clutch is 5 spring and ideally would like to replace all 5, but struggling to find any anywhere. Does anyone know where I might be able to get some or, alternatively, an equivalent from another make of bike.

One of the clutch spring adjuster nuts is also a bit damaged so would like to replace this as well if I can find one!

I bought a set a year ago from Villiers Services, but they were at least 30% too strong and had to be shortened because they coil bound. They had to be ground on the O/D to get the rate right, but I now have a superb clutch - wonder what I bought from VS?

Measure the dia of the wire; the O/D of the spring and the length, then check with these people, who sell EBC pattern clutch parts (the dias are the most important - you can always grind them to length). That's after trying all the FB and Villiers scources of course.

If you don't get sorted look up Alberta Springs He has a massive stock for classic bikes and bet he could soon match it up.

Somewhere is deepest Suffolk but you have to Google him..
