82 flh clutch adjustments

After installing new clutch plates and steels and a heavy duty throw-out bearing kit, using a Clymer manual for the specs the clutch seems to function properly. My problem is around 70-80 miles an hour the engine will rev way up, indicating that the clutches can't handle the power. I used 1 1/32" for the adjustment from the pressure plate surface to the inside surface of the release disc (actually the release disc is stamped so that it has a 1/4" (cup) on the outside edge) and that is where I pulled the measurement from (to the innermost surface). Should I instead measure to the top (outside) surface of the release disc?

Doesn't matter. Sounds like you have it in properly, and the high end play you're getting can be adjusted out. Adjust it to where the you don't have the high end play, and also be sure that there is no low end drag. High end being 70-80 mph and low end being idle, I say this because I've had to deal with some weekend warriors lately that would like to work on their own bikes, but don't know their wank from a torque wrench. If you've installed your own clutch, I know I'm not dealing with one. Now, keep in mind that if you can't get the adjustment from the current set up, then you may need to add a friction, steel, or spacer, in order to get it working properly. I suggest adding a friction, however, you will have to keep within tolerance, so in some cases, a friction or steel won't work, and you have to go with a spacer. Also check the ramp and bearings, if you haven't already. A bent or worn ramp, or bad ramp bearing can cause a float at higher speeds. Let me know what you found.

Not able to select gears when engine is running,but when off selects easy,after fitting a new kit still does the same


The clutch is not releasing , several things can be the cause, check the following , Throw out bearing same size,clutch driven plate not fitted back to front, clutch fork is fitted to throw out bearing housing and pivot mounting, is the slave cylinder rod the same length, has the clutch free play been adjusted, has all air been bled from the master cylinder, If cable operated has free play been adjusted. Has the new pressure plate the same throw as the old one.

What size clutch in a 1999 th 5 speed magner


clutch size is 240 mm x 26.1 mm with 23 tooth spline
get it as a kit including the throw out bearing from most auto spares shops
genuine will cost at least $300 more
If you do a lot of heavy work (towing ) then for a bit extra get a heavy duty clutch as it will pay for itself in the long run.
they are available on e-bay

Why is my ranger rough on shifting to all gears?


The clutch may be going out. First check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder-if you have a hydraulic clutch. If just a cable operated clutch, check that it is adjusted. The cable will have an adjusting nut to take up slack.

If fluid is full, or if cable is adjusted right, the clutch will probably need replacing: a new clutch disc, new pressure plate, new throw-out bearing. Buy this as a kit for about $150.

How to Install a new eaton 2104-20892561 clutch on a Mack Ch613


It\'s the same for all CH models and then some ,do you have the old one out ? I will look for you, I have done a lot of them ,I\'m going to ask a few questions so bear with me , ok ? ,do you have a pilot shaft or can borrow one ? for aling clutch ,and a big tranny jack , did you remove or have motor out or are you just removing tranny. ? it\'s all just really heavy it\'s a 2 person job no dough, but for the most part same as a car or truck, OTC makes a clutch installing tool to hold the two clutch plates and two pressure plates , hard part is putting throw out bearing in and holding clutch lever all the way back so it can fall in and don\'t forget to put clutch brake on shaft, if using 1 piece unit, aftermarket ones break down to easy (crap) but you can put it in after an adjust it when adjusting clutch for first time .hope this gets you going ,get back to me and I\'ll do my best to get info for you or a place for you to get it hope this helped .

HOW DO I CHANGE MY CLUTCH AND PLATES 2008 FLHTCU?


Clutch and plates replacement can be performed on the motorcycle without removing the clutch shell or hub.


FIRST remove the primary chaincase cover. THEN remove six metric bolts to release the clutch diaphragm spring retainer from the clutch hub by loosening each bolt gradually and in a star sequence around the Hub circumference and then remove the diaphragm spring retainer, the diaphragm spring and pressure plate from the clutch hub and after the pressure plate has been removed remove the 9 friction plates, the steel plates, the damper spring and the damper spring seat from the clutch hub. Clean and inspect as necessary and wash all parts except for friction plates (and any bearing if removed) in appropriate cleaning solvent and then blow parts dry with low pressure compressed air as high pressure compressed air is unnecessary and dangerous. CHECK the friction plates by blowing off all lubricant from them BUT DO NOT wipe them off with a rag if they are going to be reused. THEN measure the thickness of each plate with a dial caliper or micrometer and if any plate is less than 0.143 in. (3.62 mm) thick throw them all away and replace them with a complete new set. ALSO look for worn or damaged fiber surface material on all sides. If new friction plates will be installed soak them all in FORMULA+ TRANSMISSION AND PRIMARY CHAINCASE LUBRICANT (or whatever equivalent oil that you will be using in the primary after reassembly) for at least five minutes. THEN CHECK the steel plates for any grooving, bluish colouring (which indicates overheating/burning and which is usually accompanied with distortion/warping) and check for distortion by laying each plate on a machinist or other precision flat surface and try to insert a 0.006 inch (0.15 mm) feeler gauge between the plate and the precision surface. Do this in several places around the plate. If the feeler gauge slips under any plate or any plate is grooved, bluish or otherwise appears to be defective discard it and replace with a new plate. THEN rotate the clutch hub and shell to check for bearing smoothness and replace the bearing if it runs roughly, binds or has any end play. ALSO check the primary chain sprocket and the starter ring gear on the clutch shell at this time and replace the clutch shell if either the sprocket or ring gear are badly worn or damaged. ALSO check the slots that mate with the clutch plates on both the clutch shell and the hub and replace the shell or hub if any of the slots are worn or damaged (wear here can cause clutch hang-up on release). NOW check the diaphragm spring and diaphragm spring retainer for cracks or bent tabs and replace if any damage is evident.


After having soaked the friction plates as advised above first install the narrow friction plate on the clutch hub, engaging the tabs on this plate with the slots in the clutch shell then install the damper spring seat (sometimes called a judder spring) on the clutch hub so that it sits inboard of the previously installed narrow friction plate with the concave side out (facing away from damper spring

seat) (that will be with the narrow side facing into the clutch hub and the wider side facing out) THEN install a steel plate with the round edge (produced when the plate was stamped out from a larger piece of steel) outward and then install a regular friction plate onto the clutch hub and continue by installing the seven remaining sets of steel and fibre plates in the same manner, alternating between steel plates and friction plates so that no two steel are touching each other and so that no two fibre plates are touching each other and then when they are all in place install the pressure plate onto the clutch hub aligning holes in the plate with the threaded bosses on the hub. THEN install and seat the diaphragm spring into the recess of the pressure plate with the concave side inward and with the holes in the diaphragm spring retainer aligned with the threaded bosses on the clutch hub tabs on the spring retainer contact flats on the inboard side of the bosses install the six metric bolts to secure the diaphragm spring retainer to the clutch hub and alternately tighten the bolts to 90-110 in-lbs (10.2-12.4 Nm). THEN install the primary chaincase cover with a new gasket and torque the fasteners to 108-120 in-lbs (12.2-13.6 Nm) in a sequence top to bottom from the centre to the front and then top to bottom from the centre to the back of the cover and then reinstall the primary case drain plug and o-ring and torque it to 14-21 ft-lbs (19.0-28.5 Nm). THEN refill the primary chaincase with lubricant only up to the bottom of the clutch diaphragm spring (if there is too much oil the clutch may drag). THEN adjust the clutch by turning the clutch adjustment screw in until it just resists and then with the cable slack somewhat removed operate the clutch lever a few times to set the clutch release balls in their ramps and then recheck the clutch release pushrod adjustment screw again so that it just resists tightening as it is screwed in and then back it out one half to one full turn and while holding it stationary tighten the adjuster screw lock nut. THEN the cable can be adjusted to provide one sixteenth to one eighth of an inch of freeplay at the clutch cable bracket or perch on the handlebars. THEN reinstall the clutch inspection (derby) cover with the five T-27 Torx screws and washers and alternatively in a cross pattern tighten the screws to 84- 108 in-lbs (9.5-12.2 Nm).

When i slightly let out the clutch it starts to move


you need to check the Throw out bearing, the Cherokee XJ has a Hydraulic Throw out bearing. the slave cylinder is Inside the bell housing and the transmission and everything needs to be removed to get to it. You will see two hydraulic lines that go from the slave calendar to the throw out bearing. chances are that the bearing is bad, maybe the roller part is ok, but the part that expands to push on the pressure plate is bad. I had this and it was my first hydraulic bearing, but it is a pain, because everything has to be removed to get to it. good luck.

92'isuzu pick-up, 2.3L.manual tran. the truck starts and it goes into all gears, but it hardly moves.I adjusted the clutch cable and it got better I always had to adjust the cable. now it bearly move on...


Yes it is time to install a new clutch kit(clutch disc,pressure plate ,throw out bearing and pilot bearing)also have the flywheel resurfaced.The disc has gotten too thin to be clamped by the pressure plate.Best if you replace everything at once with new parts,avoid rebuilt parts.Good luck!

Clutch is noisy,when i depress the clutch the noise goes away


this noise is caused by a noisy clutch throw-out/release bearing, that is the part that presses against the pressure plate and disengages the clutch disk, the transmission must be removed to replace this part, so it is best to replace the clutch assembly at the same time, the labor for both is the same, about 5 hours

Manual clutch


Sounds like the wrong pressure plate. I got a kit from Autozone and it was the wrong pressure plate. My old one was obviously thicker. With the new pressure plate, the shift fork was almost at full travel before any resistance. That's no good. I had to pull the transmisssion again and use my old pressure plate. Luckily, it was in good condition. Then, the clutch slack was easily adjusted and works great.
