These springs will provide axial force to keep the clutch in engaged position . The friction plate is mounted on a hub. The hub is splined from inside . So the hub is free to slide over the gearbox shaft . Friction lining is attached to the friction plate on both sides. A pedal provided to pull pressure plate against the spring force whenever it is required to be disengaged.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
