The bronze or yellowish part goes to the worm on the mount. It has has a small (2,5mm) screw that has to be tighten. The the motor goes on the other end. The silver part has a screw that has to be tighten so that when the motor turns it also turns the worm. Hope it helps

Daniel,

Did you buy the clutches from me?

Here is a link to some manuals for the Great Polaris and Super Polaris mounts on the Company 7 Website. The Polaris is a little different, but once you get the general idea it's easy to figure out.

BTW, If you did get the clutches from me, I think I included a little Allen wrench for tightening the brass clutch piece on to the worm gear shaft.

The first two are large PDFs.

Good luck, LGM
