Clutch overfill

Post  S.C_07 on Sat Jan 07, 2017 5:41 pm

Hi I overfilled the oil on my clutch on a 59 falcon 10E , after doing so the bike wouldn't start and there was no compression , could the overfill cause this problem . I drained the oil out , how else can I get rid of this no compression problem .
Thanks Scott

Sounds a bit strange. Are you sure it's not now slipping instead of turning the engine? Try a spanner on the flywheel and see if it has compression. If you popped out a crank seal it may make a little difference but it's unlikely. If you got oil into the engine you would expect high compression or locking up.

Ahh I see , it may be slipping the timing shaft sort of moves a little then doesn't move so I think you may be right it's probably slipping , I've got my self confused . Is there a way to stop this ?? How would I get rid of the oil where I over filled it ?
Thanks scott

I wouldn't expect overfilling to make the slip as bad as that. You said you had the clutch to bits? Have you assembled it correctly. Is it adjusted on the pushrods and cable?

I believe I assembled it right , all plates and parts went back in the correct order , as to wether its adjusted correctly im unsure , how would I go about doing that ? Im only 16 my knowledge of engines isn't amazing 😂 So does the clutch slipping cause the engine to not start or turn over , whereas as previously it would start on a first kick . Sorry for all the questions , you've been amazing with all the help you've given me already so thank you 😂

adjustment

There is a hole in the r/hand case near the clutch arm, you can put a screwdriver through this to adjust the clutch, in the rest position there should be about 1/8" slack movement on the clutch actuating arm where it protrudes from the gearbox
