Give it some time... He posted at 10:30 last night ( a lot of people are already out for the night) and now it is only 2:30 in the afternoon (a lot of people have a job and haven't gotten off yet) Just give it some time and I am sure some of our big pullers will help out... Only a few of the pullers have looked at it wait till some people like Brian or Robert, maybe they will know..

It works like a standard clutch. Flywheel, then first clutch disc, then floater plate, then second clutch disc, then pressure plate. The dual disc allows the heat and friction material to be spread out over twice the area as a standard single disc. There are no dampening springs in the clutch discs, this allows you to ride the clutch for a longer period of time without damaging or overheating the discs. Most dual disc clutches use ceramic friction buttons with a steel backplate to help dissapate heat and prevent warping. Hope this helps a little.

To Add To What Smokem Said. The Clutch Uses A Set Of Counterwieghts On A Cam System. As Engine Rpm Increases The Flywheel Spins The Wieghts Out Using Cintrifical Force Appling Preasure To The Cam And Then To The Preasure Plates. The Faster The Rpm The Harder The Clamping Force.

Your describing a weighted clutch, something like a Crower. Most trucks use non-weighted dual discs. I believe Chris Watson used to run a Crower in his old blue truck. Weighted clutches are most commonly used in tractors.

I Run An Auto And The Only Slippers I Have Delt With Are Ag Clutches And One From Zoom. So Thanks For The Corection. So What Do They Use To Ingauge The Clutch. Or Are They Just Manuely Slipping It.
