Ultima 6 speed RSD problems

Hey guys,

I have an Ultima RSD 6 speed with a 3" primary. Setting up the clutch cable I found that I could only pull the clutch basket out .040" No matter where I set the pretension on the pushrod or the clutch cable I could only get the face of the clutch basket to move .040"

Consequently the clutch isn't disengaging all the way and it's hanging up. I have a bandit sportsman clutch and they say I need at least .060", I would like to see .080"

So I started measuring the ramp, throw and what not, come to find out, the outside of the ramp housing is running into the tranny cover. In other words, when I pull the clutch in and the ramp starts to push the push rod in, the ramp housing runs into the clutch pulley cover, only allowing it to push the push rod in .040"

I am not sure what to do. Could I have the wrong ramp assembly???

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks,

Lance

so the 3" primary is what brand? Did the pushrod you are using come with the transmission? I have found that you have to modify the Ultima parts to work with others. Can you space cover out a little with gaskets? Will that then make it too hard to adjust clutch cable? Not clear on exactly what is happening

I'm not sure how the activator can be touching the pulley/sprocket? cover.

Could you show the pictures? possibly showing the end position where they touch?
I have exactly the same transmission and it works just fine.

Besides, due to the nature of my exhaust i had to turn the clutch activator 90 degrees[ drilling and threading new holes in the pulley cover] so the cable faces up instead of forward.
