I wonder if threading and studding all the posts when replacing the clutch would strengthen this weak spot on our drive trains? Might prevent accidental breakage on reassembly.
Also, doing this to all would keep this spinning part balanced. A couple of ounces off @ 8,500 RPM might cause a vibration or harmonic.
Just thinking out loud here.....
