1. Loosen the RA clutch handle
2. Remove the clutch handle (unscrew the center screw)
3, Tighten the bolt 1/4 turn or so
4. Replace the handle in the "loose" postion
If that doen't work, you might have grease in the wrong place and that would make the clutch impossible to tighten.

Thanks for the reply. I had tried that, but ended up going a bit further. I took the small round disc out ( the one that the bolt tightens against the drum/clutch ). I turned it over and cleaned it and , there was some grease ( not my doing ) and that seems to have fixed it. I have always noticed that I had to really snug it to keep from slipping. I've have the mount for several years. The small round disc was flat on both sides. Sure seems like it should be rounded to match the clutch hub or whatever its called.
