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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
