Installing clutch shoes is very simple. What you need are the clutch shoes, clutch shoe installation/removal tool which costs about $5 or a flat tip screwdriver. First, line up the clutch shoe. Plastic shoes wear out faster. Aluminum last longer. With the screwdriver method you bend the spring out. Take the bent out spring and push it down. Push it straight down. This is not the authors favorite method. Using the clutch shoe installation tool, simply push the spring out and push straight down. Whatever you practice with will be the easiest. The cluth shoes are now completely on. Whether you use the screwdriver or the clutch installation tool, the concept is the same. Do whatever you are comfortable with.
