    In the two Norman White belt drive Commando clutches I have using the AJS bits, the diameter of the spring is 5.24", and the thickness is .074". The diameter of the raised area on the pressure plate is 4.162" on one pressure plate and 4.650" on the other. The 4.162" one looks like the original, with a narrow raised ring at the top of tapered areas on the inner and outer edges of the plate. The 4.650" one looks like it started out like the other one, but has been machined down on the top, and instead of a raised pressure ring, the top is flat out to where it starts to taper down at the edge.

    I'm new here but since this relates to the AJS Stormer clutch I am trying to rebuild a early 1969 250.
    I am having trouble getting the center nut off that holds the cable pull onto the center the clutch.
    Any tips? Barely any room and I can't get a socket on it. Thanks for any reply.
