Clutch Slipping

Postby Kegco » Fri Oct 25, 2019 10:01 pm

Went out on the SKCC run and the newly replaced engine, clutch was slipping. Every time I tried to put any power down.
When I got back on Sunday after the run. I Then decided to start to strip it down ready to remove the engine and one thing lead to a another and the engine was out

The clutch was brand new from the last engine but thought it might of had some oil on it, from when the bottom end went on it. So decided to replace it this time, but noticed that there was a little drip of oil from bell housing

Investigation was needed and phone call to Matt said might be the gear box seal

Removed bell housing to get to the seal and cleaned up.
Matt ordered up the new clutch kit, bearings and gaskets near his work. And popped in on his way home from work this afternoon.
Matt was straight on the clutch while I tackled the bell housing. Then it was on to the clutch bearing. Before we knew it the engine was up in the air dangling from my hoist. We struggled a little bit trying to line up the gearbox to the block. But after a lot of shaking and lifting it finally went in.
Then like a well oiled pit crew, the ancillaries were fitted and we was ready to start it, once the Petrol had gone through the system , it pretty much started on the button.

Checked the clutch, but could go any where as still on axle stands.
So just got to get the bonnet and nose cone on and take her for a shake down and see what I can brake next :lol:
Thanks Matt for all your help
Until next time

Good effort well done :)

Did the unput shaft bearing feel ok? Just wondering why the seal failed.

Yes it seemed ok the old seal had gone very hard so I think it was just the seals old age. We also replaced the spigot bearing in the end of the crank while we was there.

Sounds like you've covered all the possibilities, let's hope Kev is all set for some rapid motoring. He seemed to be going pretty quickly with the clutch slipping :)
