## What are the procedures clutch proper dismounting and mounting procedures?

Clutch Disc Hold the pressure plate securely and completely, then loosen the pressure plate-to-flywheel bolts by turning each bolt only a little at a time. Work in a criss-cross pattern until all spring pressure is relieved. Then remove the bolts, followed by the pressure plate and the clutch disc.

## What precautions should be taken during the installation of pressure plate and flywheel?

Make sure you can install the pressure plate properly. Never modify the mounting holes in the flywheel, never drill new mounting holes in the pressure plate or flywheel, and ALWAYS use the correct fasteners. There will either be locating pins and non-stepped bolts OR step-bolts and no locating pins.

## When do you replace the clutch friction plate?

You will begin to notice reduced pick up in the vehicle and the engine rpm will tend to rise further than necessary for a given speed before the vehicle matches up. This kind of slippage occurs when all the friction material on the clutch plates have worn out and it’s time to replace the clutch friction plate.

## Can you replace friction plates on a motorcycle?

A few of our steel plates were showing that they were very hot at some point, but not so bad that they became warped, so these will be reused. The manual does recommend replacing the steel plates, friction plates and springs all at once but we do have to be mindful of the budget on this bike.

## How much pressure does a pressure plate apply?

The pressure plate is a spring loaded device. It defaults to applying pressure to the clutch disk. The amount of pressure applied is called “plate load.” A clutch with a 3,000 lb. plate load is applying 3,000 lbs of pressure to the clutch disk.

## How to calculate the torque of a single plate clutch?

Single Plate Clutch  Torque transmitted by single plate clutch can be obtain by integrating the Equation (4 ) within the limit R2 to R1 we get, 2 RR Cμ2π 2 r Cμ2πΤ δrrCμ2πΤ δrrCμ2πΤ 2 2 2 1 R R 2 R R T 0 r R R T 0 r 1 2 2 2 2 2 18.

## How do you install a clutch pressure plate?

Disconnect the adjustment rod so that the fork is free. Move the fork by hand toward the transmission until the T.O. bearing contacts the clutch pressure plate fingers. At this point, check the angle of the fork as it comes out of the bell housing. It should be coming out straight or be slightly angled toward the engine. See Fig. A.

## Do you remove centrifugal weight from Centerforce pressure plate?

-Do not remove the centrifugal weight system, if equipped, from your Centerforce pressure plate. The weight system is designed to provide increased holding capacity with increasing RPM. -Follow the required break in procedure for your new Centerforce clutch assembly.

## How do you adjust a pressure plate on a car?

When adjusting with a feeler gauge, push the pedal all the way to the floor (or pedal stop); then, by adjusting the clutch rod, slide the feeler gauge between the disc and pressure plate until you have .050” air gap, See Fig. E. When .050” is adjusted into the clutch let the pedal up. Your clutch assembly should be properly adjusted.
