  • The Role Of The Three Main Components Of The Clutch

    If you've ever bought a clutch, you know that a clutch has three main components - the pressure plate, cover assembly, and bearings. There’s also the flywheel, which bolts to the clutch and comes with some high-performance clutch kits. The flywheel is bolted to the end of the crankshaft ...
  • What Could Happen To The Clutch

    Clutch packs have similar settings and components, whether light, medium, or heavy-duty. However, in heavy-duty applications, there may be two clutch discs to meet the need for increased torque capacity. Light and most medium vehicles tend to have only one. Increased horsepower and traction ess...
  • The Role Of Each Part Of The Diaphragm Clutch

    Diaphragm clutches use a circular conical spring, aptly called a diaphragm spring, to apply a clamping force to the pressure ring, which is a heavy cast iron circular plate that pushes the clutch disc toward the flywheel. The flywheel is a solid piece of metal that is bolted to the crankshaft o...
  • The Difference Between a Multi-Plate Clutch Plate And a Single

    A multi-plate clutch stacks multiple friction plates together, with the obvious benefit that the amount of friction created within the clutch can be greatly amplified, so it can handle higher torque inputs. Used in many racing cars including Formula 1 and the WRC, thanks to the neat stacking, the am...
  • What To Do About Heavy Vehicle Clutch Failure

        The clutch is designed to increase efficiency and keep you safe. The reason we have clutches, whether manual or automatic, is to make sure that when we're on the road, our engine moves our wheels when we want, and only at the speed we want.     Of course, after enough time o...
  • Maintenance Points For Truck Clutches

        According to the fulcrum on the truck pressure plate, the clutch is mainly designed as two types of friction disc clutches, namely, push type and pull type. The two types of designs differ in pedal force and clamping load. Using the same pedal force, the clamping load of the pull clutc...
