IMPORTANT TIPS WHEN FITTING A CLUTCH
USING A CONCENTRIC SLAVE CYLINDER
- Thoroughly clean block face (and sandwich plate if fitted)
- Fit the flywheel and torque to specifications using new bolts, and Loctite sparingly on the threads.
- Fit new spigot bearing, and ensure that the spigot/pilot bush or bearing is locating and adequately supporting the input shaft, take measurements to confirm this!
- Failure to check this will result in transmission damage.
- Clean flywheel face and pressure plate face with Thinners.
- DO NOT grease the clutch spline.
- DO NOT touch the surfaces of the clutch plate with dirty hands.
- Fit clutch using correct aligning tool and torque to specifications using new bolts and Loctite sparingly on the threads.
- With the fitment of any clutch it is essential to set-up the CSC.
- The correct crush should be a minimum of 14mm to maximum of 17mm.
This is the simplest way to check the set-up:
- Using a straight edge and ruler get the height from the block face to the fingers on the pressure plate.
- Clutch Height Measurement:__________________________________
- With the bellhousing on the transmission and the CSC fitted, put a straight edge across the bellhousing and measure down to the face of the CSC in its relaxed position.
- CSC Measurement:__________________________________________
- The second measurement should be 14 to 17mm less than the first measurement.
Example: Clutch Height Measurement: 79mm, CSC Height: 64mm = 15mm of crush.
1.________________ minus 2.__________________ = _________________
- If spacers are required to get the right height, these can be supplied.
- Now you are ready to fit your transmission.
- Make sure that the transmission is properly supported when fitting.
- When bleeding the clutch, evacuate dirty or contaminated clutch fluid, and use new fluid.
- Finally the clutch must be run in by driving normally for at least 2000km’s.
