Clutch dismantle

Post  S.C_07 on Tue Dec 13, 2016 8:12 pm

Hi there , i have a 1959 falcon with a 10 e engine and a 3 speed gear box , ive taken the side casing off and i want to dismantle the clutch as the plates look nasty and they are sticking together. However i cant figure out how to dismantle the clutch , it seems the nut cap ( as its called in the manual ) is drawn inwards and its just proving really dificult to dismantle . Can anyone suggest a step by step solution to my dilema
Thanks
Scott

Scott, the centre domed nut has 4 holes in it, there is a special tool to undo this, but a disc grinder peg spanner will sometimes fit. You need to lock the clutch to prevent it turning, there is a special tool for this that slides over the centre bolt and has teeth on either side to lock the clutch sprocket and the engine sprocket , or you can put I piece of wood inbetween the chain and engine sprocket, when you have removed the domed nut, all of the plates can be removed, If you wish to remove the clutch basket, you will also have to remove the centre nut, there is a special tool for holding the clutch centre , or you can weld a steel clutch plate and a friction plate together to make your own !
