This is a Comet Duster clutch setup that I got with a buggy of mine but have no use for them. The primary clutch has a small peice broken off the inner plate. I was told it could be easily welded back on. Other then that everything worked fine when pulled. Everything in the pics is included(primary, secondary, belt).

Primary is 1" shaft
Secondary is 3/4" shaft

Make me an offer.

Broken part lines up perfectly fine still. You can just make out the crack.

Tigging it back on wouldn't throw the balance off much, if any. With the amount of aluminum weld that you would be using then grinding half it off. You probably wouldnt even know it was welded. An experienced weldeder should be able to weld it up and not even have to grind anything off. The beads should sit just about flush with the rest of it.

I've been TIC welding for 75yrs and I own comet and have driven a duster and I say just dont stand in line with the clutch while your driving it!

I didnt mean to sound like an ass or anything. Just figured it would be the next best thing besides trying to find a replacement. I guess it's really up to the buyer what they do with it. Like I said I have no need for it. I wouldnt think it would be worth much as it is, which is pretty much why I didnt post a price.

I like the way you think.

With the amount of clamping force on the sides of the clutch I would not risk welding the piece back on. Would the weld hold , sure. Its the weakened material on each edge that will break.
