Hi all i am doing a clutch conversion from 2 to 3 piece on my savage 21 and my problem is the new flywheel will not go back on the collet as far as the old flywheel did so when its fully assembled the bell housing will not spin freely. Any help much appreciated

Put some shims (washers) between the clutch bell and the flywheel nut.

Does the clutchbell lock up when you tighten the bolt that threads in to the end of the crank ? Take a pic of the tip of the crank with the clutchbell installed but with the bolt removed.

THE MESURMENT IS THE DIAMETER,
FROM EDGE TO EDGE,
ALSO TAKE THE CLUTCH BELL OFF AND TAKE A LOOK AT HOW YOUR CLUTCH
SHOES ARE INSTALLED .

Are you using the stock savage brass spacer on the end of the crankshaft ?sorry i not replied earlier

Are you using the stock savage brass spacer on the end of the crankshaft ?
Sorry i not replied earlier mate i been waiting on parts, Bought a new flywheel new securing nut new bearings and new spacer to replace the brass one that you mentioned. the new spacer is slightly thinner and i can tighten it right down and it turns with a little resistance. Think if you tighten it right down the bell housing rubs on the clutch but slacken it half a turn it spins freely. I also don't think the flywheel goes down far enough on the collet but the nut is really tight down

Get some 320 grit sandpaper and lay it on flat surface. sand one side of the spacer to remove thickness until you have a small amount of free play in the spacer with the crank bolt tight.
