Dismantling the clutch

All the parts that are fixed together must be marked before dismantling. Use a centre-punch. Unscrew the 3 socked-headed bolts, near the K marks, and lift off the impeller. Remove the snap ring and lift off the diaphragm spring. The counter plate and the pressure plate can be removed. The driven plate can be lifted out of the clutch. The driven plate friction linings must be renewed. Clean all the clutch parts.

Assembly to the engine

The clutch is reassembled in the reverse order of removing. Lubricate the clutch shaft with Molykote grease and press it in position. If the clutch shaft is difficult to press use the release lever slightly so that the splines of the clutch shaft can align. Do it at the same time: constant pressing (or hammering soft) the clutch shaft and slightly release the lever.
