clutch return spring prob. popped off look under car at clutch rod and see if there is a spring there shouldn't take much to fix at all
IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR HAVING CLUTCH QUADRANT PROBLEMS. LIKE MENTIONED ABOVE IT COULD BE THE SPRING ON THE QUADRANT OR THE TEETH ON THE QUADRANT HAVE BEEN STRIPPED. EASY FIX EITHER WAY. FIRST FOLLOW THE CLUTCH PEDAL ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP AND YOU WILL SEE THAT THE PEDAL IS CONNECTED TO A ROD. NEXT TO THE ROD YOU WILL SEE A LARGE QUADRANT WHICH MOVES BACK AND FORTH WHEN THE PEDAL IS PUSHED.
Adjustments is behind top of the clutch pedal. Clutch spring should be under the car on the transmission closest to the motor block, next to the slave cylinder.
The clutch centre plate with spring hub help in holding the spring leaf spring in place in a vehicle.
how to install a spring clutch on a murray mower
the return spring on the clutch pedal assembly must be replaced.
For the brake it's pretty obvious. You don't want the brake to stay on when you aren't braking, so you need the spring to push it back. For the clutch it's the same but in reverse. You want the clutch to stay on, except for when you're depressing the lever. The spring keeps the clutch on, until you use the lever to overcome the spring. Then when you release the lever the spring kicks in again, engaging the clutch.
A spring is used to hold together the clutch and the flywheel.
Diaphragm spring clutch are less in weight
diaphragam clutch is small in size as compare to spring clutch and it transmits more torque as diaphragm exerts more force as copare to springs...... therefore it is advantageous to use diaphragm...
clutch pedal over -centre spring pressure
You may have a broken spring but you should have it checked out by a car repair center.
The 1995 Escort clutch has a single dry plate diaphragm spring type clutch. The clutch plate has a splined hub which allows it to slide along the splines on the input shaft. The clutch and pressure plate are held in contact by spring pressure exerted by the diaphragm spring in the pressure plate. During shifting when the clutch pedal is depressed, which transmits hydraulic pressure from the master cylinder to the release cylinder, pushing on the release lever so the throwout bearing pushes on the diaphragm spring fingers, disengaging the clutch.
Have a look at: Clutch slave cylinder Clutch cable More than likely the clutch itself has broken spring(s)
You should not attempt to replace the clutch yourself unless you have considerable mechanical skills. In this case, the problem is most likely that the spring holding the clutch pedal in place is broken.
Diaphragm clutch is smaller specially on size compare to other spring clutch. It also transmits much more torque as diaphragm exerts more force as compare to other strings.
If your clutch is connected by a cable it has to have a cable adjuster on or near the end (On my older mustang it was under the hood near the firewall). These are generally adjusted by loosening the lock nut(if equipped) then turning the adjusting nut one way or the other to achieve the proper freeplay. Generally, you want to end up with 1" of freeplay at the pedal; this allows for full clutch engagement at the top of the clutch pedal travel. Hydraulic clutches are generally non adjustable as long as the fluid is full and the slave & master cylinder are leak free.
look at your Gm dealer they should be able to provide this part
no you do not.
If you take off the spring in the front and move the pin the other way (then put spring back to lock it there)...it should become direct drive
diaphragam clutch is small in size as compare to spring clutch and it transmits more torque as diaphragm exerts more force as copare to springs...... therefore it is advantageous to use diaphragm clutch intead of spring clutch... more compact means of storing energy. thus compact design results in smaller clutch housing......... less affected by centrifugal force..can withstand higher rotational speeds... diaphragm acts as both clamping spring and release levers..therefore many extra parts like struts, eye bolts, levers etc can be eliminated....
I need the torque urgently.
Because race car
you need to change the spring in the clutch cylinder ,you find more info on at alfa .net
yes you do use a spring plate, due to the fact of the amount of fricion the disc will undertake.
