EPI Performance clutch kit

Looking at possibly doing this to my 2015 mule pro-fxt. Part number WE437501. Anyone done this? Also looking for clutch compression tool CCT510 if anyone has one for sale.

I installed the kit to my '17 a few months ago. Definitely made the Mule quicker off the line; can actually spin the tires on take off.

I made a compression tool for around $15, works great. Some all-thread, washers, nuts, and a bell reducer. You can also find them reasonably on Ebay if you don't want to hassle with it.

Thanks for the fast response defenestrator. I went ahead and ordered the clutch kit and the tool that you linked to. Ordered a new belt as well, might as well change it while i'm in there and keep the original as a spare if needed.

No prob. EPI's video on the process is excellent. I used it in conjunction with their directions. If this is the first time your primary clutch is coming out, it can be a bit hard to come off. I used their push/pull technique and it worked well. The primary is definitely finicky trying to align it during reinstall as well.

Good luck, hope it goes well and that you are happy with the upgrade. I sure am.

Started disassembling today. The clutch on the left side with the piece that bolts over it came out no problem. I believe this is the primary but could be wrong. The problem I am running into is the clutch on the right side with the left hand threaded bolt. The bolt came off fine easy no problem. Every video I have watched after the bolt comes out it just slides off the splines no problem. My father and I worked for 2 hours and still haven't got it off. I've tried every which way to pull it off. I don't have a puller to fit it. Any suggestions?

I had the same problem. The method that worked for me is the quick/jolting forceinward on the clutch, and immediate jolt outward. I believe he discusses it in the video.

No that is the one that came right off. The other one is the one we can't get off. Did you have any trouble with the other side?

My error. You are talking the seconday clutch with reverse thread bolt. I had absolutely no issue getting that off. I wonder if using a rubber mallet with a few taps around where it sits on the shaft woukd break it free. Alsost sounds like its jammed on it.

Yes we tried rubber mallet with no luck. Also tried some more extreme tactics with no luck. I figured we better call it a day before we went to far and damaged something. I'm thinking you are right it is jammed in some way. Worse case scenario I can put it back together unaltered. Was hoping someone else had a issue with it and had a tip on how to get it free.
