Re: Bent HH stem and clutch won't stay tight
You could try straightening the stem - you probably couldn't mess things up worse than they already are... If you'll NEVER use that much stem on the top (for a hat trick or some such), you might just cut it off!?!
The nut on my clutch works loose too. I use Teflon plumber's tape and it works just fine. One application will last through 3 - 4 tear-down/set-ups before it works loose again.
