Members,

I have been updating the Registration Agreement and Privacy Policy in the last 24 hours and it will probably be asking you to accept them when you log in.

If you have had to do this several times I apologise. There have been a number of edits and every time I make a change, it may ask you to accept them again. It is pretty annoying but this setting can't be turned off due to the European GPDR laws.

Thank you for your patience,
Dave

Could be 5/16-25 was a proprietary thread for Douglas.

Yes 5/16 x 24 tpi. So yours should be the same unless its been altered at some point. You'll be able to confirm when you get them out.
The heads on ours ended up being 11mm diameter but whatever you can get to fit, given that clearance to the crankcase is the limiting factor.

I think that increase in pin size is my first avenue
Its difficult to tell with only 1/4 of thread but I think its a 5/16 by 24 thread  but it could be 26 (cycle thread) do you have a note?

It seems that our clutch is a 600 clutch so we didnt go the digger bucket washer route.
However, we did find that those three pins were worn and we had the same problem as tck - the operating arm cam does not engage until towards the end of travel. We manufactured three new pins with the head diameter as large as would fit against the crankcase and that allowed the operating arm to disengage the clutch.
Not sure if that will be enough to work in your case tck but might be worth a try.
