Do I need to remove the drive clutch to install a new spring? Any tricks I should know? I was thinking I could get longer bolts and some washers and slowly remove the cover without exploding the clutch by increasing cover space a little at a time. Does that make sense?

You're in luck - you can now buy a "dummy" clutch tool from EPI for 49.95. You can change weights, springs without taking the entire clutch off the motor. WL.

buy the dummy shaft,or the real puller <might be even chaeper>yank the clutch off,far easier,i have my clutch off at 7- 10 times a year.
or get a bolt to fit the threads in the fixed sheave thats about 2inches long with a large washer.pull the center bolt,put the new bolt in remove cover bolts, then back off center bolt,
it get be done without an bolts or pullers,just alittle muscle,done that also

In short. No you don't need to remove the clutch to change the primary spring. However it is easier if you have a puller to take it off an do in on the bench. Either way works.
