The primary purpose of the clutch is to disengage the prop from the engine allowing it to start and operate at idle without vibration. When the engine is idling (below 2350 RPM) the prop is not turning.
Installation of the clutch replaces the gear box flywheel and the hardy disk.
Added weight is approx. 3 Lbs. At this time the clutch is only available in the "C" gearbox.
