How a clutch works, simply and quickly explained.

The bane of millennial, car thieves everywhere best anti-theft ever invented ancient european technology, what they still use to this very day, the automotive clutch, in this case the truck-a-motive clutch. We have a diaphragm spring on the pressure plate and a feeble look and friction disc. What manages to transmit all the power and torque of the entire engine? The friction disc is splined to the input shaft of the transmission and is sandwiched in betwixt, the engine flywheel and the pressure plate. The pressure plate gets bolted to the flywheel when you actuate the fingers on the diaphragm spring.

It reduces the clamping force, the more that you push, the less the clamping force, the less friction you have the more the slippage hey. What do you think is better for cleaning some plastic off wiener's sliding 40. yeah and uncle deep creep deep gives me the willies? Oh you too. As it happens, i got an industrial diesel engine.

What's waiting for some deep creep sea foam, she has seen butter days, but it does have a flywheel here. We have an industrial clutch, very simple. This got bolted to the back of the flywheel, we'll pretend we're pushing on those fingers by depressing the clutch pedal. It's already depressed disengaged, the clutch free turning free spinning and if we engage the clutch by letting off of the clutch pedal locks up if it weren't completely worn out, thereby allowing power to go from the engine flywheel directly through the transmission to the output of the Transmission, in this case some pulleys, the harder you press on these springs, the less clamping force on the friction, disc and the less torque it will transmit until it completely disengages and will not transmit any torque.

    Hello! I have no idea how to just contact you, so I thought you might take a look at a message here. I would like to thank you for opening up my eyes to the crap and why they are crap in manufacturing tools. Your vocabulary is also appreciated. Could you be so kind as to review the Milwaukee 3" saw? I think it's rated at 30k rippums and would like to get your take. Also on the list is the Milwaukee die grinder that is attached to the "Sharpie" branded tungsten grinder. I don't own any Milwaukee yet with the price of batteries I have made do with DeWalt for now. Many years ago I bought Snap On's first go of cordless tools and used the drill and 1/2" impact – until I needed a second set of new batteries. The new batteries were not backwards compatible and that was that for cordless for awhile if they keep changing batteries. My crack truck driver said air tools always run on air and corded tools always plug in. So I have been a bit shy of sinking money into cordless stuff. Anyway, I'd love to see those reviews if you get the inclination. Stay safe north of the border.

    AvE, I'm not one to assume your preferences for recreation, but I'm pretty sure you'll appreciate the SpaceX starbase operations down yonder.

    Take a peek at the latest vid from RGV Aerial Photgraphy channel.

    Lots of the "info bubbles" are confirmed as accurate, but some are still speculation.

    If you haven't seen this yet, I'll be surprised, but let's take no chances. Had to fill you in, just in case.

    Cya round. Hope you and yers all good.

    Do the Husqvarna k1270 saw

    I use it as a rail saw but I know it isn't specifically for that. It is a fucking pile of shit. I have to change the filter every 6 hours which is awful in terms of expenses and output, and its body housing is plastic.

    You've spoken highly about some builds that look similar to this. I have received 3 different versions of it in the last year and a half, they are changing their set up on a near saw by saw basis for me.

    Trigger assembly fuel tank choke and the rubber button you press to give gas at the start have all changed positions multiple times. Their newest version doesn't have the little rubber button so I have to fuck around with the choke more ..

    In terms of cutting rail you will get maybe 6 months hard work out of it and it craps out, from any number of failures .

    A big one being the design itself is set up to crack and break through the middle of the saw

    The steel arm cuts into the metal tube you hold while cuttong, which is an obvious design flaw

    Since you probably don't have experience cutting rail you won't have the same complaints I do, which is why I'd like to see you review it

    It looks like a good tool, it feels like a pretty good tool. You know your shit. I wonder if cutting rail is just too hard a job for the "rail" saw.

    Have a good one. I also find the kumsheen river to be a funny name. It's burnt down now though :/

    Sorry cock, that is not a pressure plate, that is a clutch cover assembly, the pressure plate is the cast iron part that the friction plate mates with. You can't have the assembly and the pressure plate, both called pressure plate!

    Bunch of boomers confusing generations in here. AvE: you can't be that old since you just had kids in the last few years. The oldest millennials are now 40. I'm not far behind that, so well within that generation. For the record, I took my driver's Ed/ license test with a 5-speed Dodge Neon. I think the potentially manual-transmission inept generation you're looking for is Zennial or zoomers.

    Also, does anyone else remember when AvE use to do tool reviews? Pepperidge farm remembers.

    My brothers anti-theft device was a 4 speed trans with a 5 speed shifter plate in a Hyundai excell. Wait till they hit the highway ramp, the car will be at the end of the ramp at the side of the road.

    Here in Brazil till some years ago, the real anti-theft device was the auto transmitions. nobody liked auto here, but now it got some grip.
    I learned using the clutch by driving back and forth inside my dads garage when I was 14/15. took a while but i figure it out.

    On the subject of Manual Clutches. It is my most unprofessional and unrequested opinion that everyone able bodied of the both arm variety, should learn to drive in a Manual car regardless of what you want to drive once you have passed your test.

    It is my most unprofessional and unrequested opinion that everyone should forgo Manual cars when all you do is pootle around town to and fro work, shop and home.. No point in adding the extra level of control that takes your attention away from any potential squishy meat bags that may or may not happen to be in front of you at the time.

    replacing the clutch in my Corvair spyder turbo in high school learned me in a moment how it really worked in an instant vs. the book illustrations.

    A few years ago rented an Audi diesel in Italy while traveling. Having driven manuals decades before, but not for a decade since, after a couple moments, had no problem.
    forgot to disengage a couple times while stopping. Oof! But the thing just restarted itself! Sure was peppy for a diesel, bet it was one of the diesel gate things.
