    so I was working on my blaster and I put new clutch springs in bc I was missing one. Now, the clutch is stiff as hell and it’s not releasing at all, just barely moving. I tried adjusting the cable, but it didn’t help. Please help me!

    So, you've read the manual, done EVERYTHING exactly how it says to?
    Is the push rod ball in place? (Little BB)

    Yeah, I didn’t have the correct one, so I took one out of a bike rear sprocket bearing, and that fit. I thought it fell out, and I put another one in. They are a tiny bit smaller than the real one, and there may be 2 in there, so maybe they are jamming against each Other?

    also, does the smooth silver one go on the outside, or the friction plate on the outside of the back and front?

    It was because I had 2 ball bearings in it and they were jamming so I took one out and did the clutch plates and it worked. Thank you guys so much!

    It runs and drives, but I have clutch slip as soon as the powerbamd hits. The plates looked fine, but when I put it together there was a friction plate that had a bigger diameter on the inside of it. Would this be causing my clutch slip if it’s not in the proper place? Also, where does it go?

    Sounds like you still have a stock clutch. It has an odd plate (or two, I forget)

    Top listing : https://www.blasterforum.com/thread...ervice-and-owner-manuals-free-download.17325/

    The odd plates should go in correct position.
    Also, what oil are you using?
    Have you adjted EVERYTHING correctly?

    Be sure to soak the new fibers in tranny fluid for 24hrs before assembly.
