Giving the clutch a helping hand. ... 

It's not holding anything on all it's doing is pushing up the cup washer, how does that help ? I honestly can't see what it's there for.

I'm assuming the wire isn't a "design feature" but wrapped itself around the sprocket during a cutting incident. ...  The chain running on being a result of the wire pressing on the crank and driving the sprocket (and chain) even when the clutch has disengaged. Happy to be told I'm wrong ....

 

It'll all be fine in a bit though,  the wire will soon wear to give running clearance  and/or something else will break.

I read the first post again and see my misunderstanding of the situation. When BB says don't think that he installed the wire as a bodge I mistakenly understood it as someone else had done it :D I now see the error of my thinking.

To be honest I didnt have a scobby-do either ....

I'm still bemused any one could chomp through or snatch up some fence wire and not know about it until investigating a running on chain. ...  maybe someone else was to blame.

To be honest I never noticed the chain collecting the piece of wire until the chain wouldn’t stop running on and the idle speed increased. Not fence wire gauge, more like berry wire, so finer. I may have collected it brashing up a pile of orchard prunings which were added to a pile of old hen coop wood ready for a bonfire.
Took the clip and drum off, greased the needle roller and normal service was resumed

You were just unlucky I guess. On the woodpile the other say I cut through a thick piece and rolled it over and saw green baler twine running all the way through it. If it had been wire I would have been swapping chains.
