1932 clutch plate
« Reply #1 on: October 20, 2018, 05:52:21 PM »
Just and update..I managed to get a clutch pressure plate that had been messed about with.
My pressure plate got damaged by the release bearing and was useless, so I found one way to repair it.
I machined the bearing dome off, or at least the remnants of the dome, and opened the hole as large as possible without cutting into the spring cup holes. Then I found a piece of 1/2 steel plate and turned it to fit inside the pressure plate and poke through the hole i had machined, the plate was then brazed in place.
the plate was mounted in the 4 jaw chuck and centered on the outer diameter of the plate and the bearing hole was bored to the size of the thrust bearing.
I have had this on the bike for a test and all seems to be ok.
