WHAT CAUSES MISALIGNMENT?
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF MISALIGNMENT?
HOW DO I PREVENT MISALIGNMENT?
Whenever you are replacing a clutch, inspect the old components. If misalignment is present you will need to find the cause.
How to check for engine/transmission misalignment;
Mount indicator to flywheel and determine concentricity of bell housing bore to centre line of crank rotation, SPECIFICATION: 0.15mm max, T.I.R.
With indicator still mounted to flywheel ensure rear surface of housing is square. SPECIFICATION: 0.15mm max, T.I.R.
REMEMBER – IF MISALIGNMENT IS PRESENT, FITTING A NEW CLUTCH KIT WILL NOT FIX THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM AND THE MISALIGNMENT WILL QUICKLY DESTROY THE NEW.
