  1. I asked google for information about the double clutch on a 860 and got your 860 description. I’m still in the dark about the clutch but got a lot of good info.that I had never seen before. I have had my 860 for 20 years and never knew that it came in a propane version and the compression is higher than the gas. Thanks.
