Indexing a Clutch

Have a question Iím hoping someone can give me some insight on
I have too much sheave to belt clearance (at least 120 thousands if not more) and was wondering If I play with my shims do I have to re-index the clutch. Iím kinda familiar with indexing but am not totally sure how to get them to align back up. Is it necessary that I re-index? Will it throw the balance off on the clutch if I donít?

Ps the reason Iím doing all this is after I put a clutch kit in my 95 XLT SP. I sometimes get a bang on engagement

Re: Indexing a Clutch

Generally you will be ok, but if you have a way to have the balance checked, I would do it just to be safe. Typically you are talking a small amount of movement with a single shim. maybe an 1/8 turn or so. You should be able to get it checked for $15 or so. That's what I charge, and is what I was charged before I had a balancer made.
