Can this setup be done? The clutch doesn't seem to have enough Strength to push
the mouse trap back. Has anyone done this? Thanks Eric

I haven;t done it, but you can loosen the tension spring on the mousetrap quite a bit.

I made it work. You can always use the green springs, or three yellow+three greens, for more tension.

But I gotta tell ya, the scorpion is *so* noisy. Rattles like crazy when you're in neutral or with the clutch disengaged. I took it out and went back to my stock set up.

Ran out of time today so tomorrow I'll try out the green springs. I was able to try 3 each still wasn't quite right.
Thanks for the info. Just bought a Baker 4 Speed and threw in the new clutch. Got to run to Houston this weekend,
cutting it close.
Thanks again.
