The steel plates have nothing to do with balanceing the clutch. Starting with a fiber plate, alternate " fiber / steel / fiber / steel " until all plates have been installed.

Hi Ma_beveridge,

I guess ,since its 10splines you ought to fit in 5 steel plates ,just make sure that no steel plates come into contact with each other except with the clutch plate in between them.

Hope this will help .

I need a clutch disc and lift cylinder for a gray market Sato ST 2000. What will fit or where can I find parts for this tractor please. Thanks

clutch disc or clutch plates are determined by several things
over haul diameter
spline size
no of splines
solid center;
spring loaded center light 4 spring of light spring material
spring loaded center heavy---6 or 8 springs of thick spring material
full face linings --asbestos or like material
button linings --normal a brass compound
So now knowing all of this all you have top do is take the existing plate along to a specialist brake and clutch shop and they will be able to match up a replacement plate as equipment manufacturers use generic clutches suitable to their engineering requirements
best advice is to always replace the clutch as an assembly because there is high heat generated in a clutch operation and that affects the tension quality of the spring steel used in the springs of the pressure plate
as for a lift cylinder , any professional hydraulic engineering shop will be able to repair/replace or manufacture what you want
again your cylinder as a sample is a big advantage when replacing something

How do you reinstall a transmission on a 2000 Sonoma manual trans, Its all lined up but will not slide in to bell housing

Your problem is probably that you have the clutch plate out of position and the clutch shaft is not being allowed to line up with the spigot bearing in the end of the crankshaft. . Get a cheap clutch aligning tool, loosen off the pressure plate bolts and align the clutch plate. Having done that retension the pressure plate bolts. Keep the gearbox evenly spaced around the bell housing as any misalignment will not allow the clutch shaft to engage in the clutch plate and the spigot bearing.

As previous incomplete query. In assebling a basket case B40 it appears that the inner cable of the clutch cable is approx 65mm to long..I acquired a new cable which was exactlt thje same length. The inner...

I am not familiar with your model. However what I can think of that would cause the symptom you have with a basket case assembly: Improper clutch assembly( pressure plate not engaged properly with inner clutch hub; needs to be rotated 1 or more teeth so as to seat fully on plates), improper plate stacking or # of plates. Incorrect location of clutch cable mounting bracket. If clutch arm is of the splined type, incorrect placement on the splined release shaft. hope something helps

Cant select gears in my escort gti, the thrust bearing is winding

this sounds like the throwout breaing is going or gone bad and may have lost it purpose of controling the pressure plate, by not being able to select a gear tells me something has gone bad in the clutch system like the bearing which pushes the pressure plate to release the cluch which allow ****** to stop spinning so that the gear can be selected. the repair for this would be to replace the clutch kit. the clutch pack will come with new bearing clutch disc and pressure plate and if needed a polit bushing, the whining noise was a warning that something in the cluch system was going bad.

Hello, Clutch not disengaging properly

it looks like you have worn clutch plates very common on learner bikes. but do try to adjust the clutch cable first by winding the adjuster on the clutch lever. if this fails drain the eng oil and remove the left hand eng cover to get at the clutch plates. remove the springs by turning retaining bolts about 6 of them. then your clutch plates will slide out off the drum any bent steel plates even a little replace. any dark or burnt friction plates also replace, usually done all in one go and quite cheap to do . fit new parts in exactly reverse order dont forget new oil re set cable and off you go p.s also check clutch basket for tiny notches from plate wear if very little a gentle file will sort this

Where is the torque converter and drive plate on 97 eclipse gst manual transmission.. so i may markmatch it before removing the tranny

hi, if you have a manual gearbox then you dont have a torque converter a torque converter is what changes the gears in an automatic gearbox as your is manual all you will have inside your gearbox is a pressure plate a clutch plate and a thrust bearing witch operates the clutch when you press the pedal down.
The only thing you need to line up on a manual box is when you have fitted the new clutch you need to have a tool that holds the clutch plate central so that when you tighten the bolts up on the pressure plate the clutch stays central if you dont do this you wont be able to get the gearbox back onto the engine as the spline from the gearbox wont be able to go through the center of the clutch into the engine.

You can make or use you own tool to hold the clitch dead center as long as its a good fit and about the same size as the spline, so once you have the new clutch in and the pressure plate loosely bolted on you can still move the clutch around behind the pressure plate now right in the center their is a hole in the pressure plate and the clutch plate this is where the tool needs to be put so that the clutch plate remains dead center whilst you tighten the pressure plate up this will then make sure that the spline on the gearbox lines up properly not doing this will make it impossible to get the gearbox on properly.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
