New Clutch
« on: 01.08. 2009 11:12 »
Hi
    I'm just renewing the clutch on my A10 Plunger 1957 and someone said that you must clock up the clutch spring face when adjusting the plates, I know this makes good sense but my question is, how much tolerance is allowed  ie .002 or .010 or .020 when adjusting the springs.
   
    Your guidance would be appreciated


Richard

Hi Richard,
Using a dial gauge is probably over the top! even though I do it my self!
If you make a wire pointer attached to one of the threaded inner case holes with a short screw
bend this around to the front of the pressure plate and observe the wobble as you kick the kickstart with the clutch pulled in, adjust the screws until it appears true to the eye against the pointer
Hope this helps

Hi John
             Thanks for the reply it was most helpfull I'II give your idea a try and when it's running true to the pointer I will put the dial clock on, just to complete the job,"I can't be far out that way."


Many Thanks
Richard
