  • Distributor clutch - THE FIX

    This info was gathered from Lafarge.

    The problem is too much friction from the bronze pinion bushing against the d washer and too much tension between the round washer and the sleeve.

    Here is the fix:
    1. 4 Torrington flat washers - tra1018
    2. 2 Torrington thrust roller bearing - nta1018
    3. 2 Torrington needle bearings - bh1012

    Instructions:
    1. Press bronze bushing out of pinion sleeve.
    2. Install 2 needle bearings bh1012 in the pinion using a vise or press.....make sure you get the needle bearings past the keyed part of the pinion.
    3. Remove clutch assy. leaving the d washer.
    4. Install 1 flat washer tra1018.
    5. Install 1 thrust bearing nta1018.
    6. Install 1 flat washer tra1018.
    7. Install pinion with the needle bearings.
    8. Install rear clutch plate.
    9. Install 1 flat washer tra1018.
    10. Install 1 thrust bearing nta1018.
    11. Install 1 flat washer tra1018.
    12. Install worm.....you must grind 1/8 off the side of the worm that rides agaist the flat washer to allow for the space the washer/bearing takes.
    13. Install clutch disc.
    14. Install front clutch plate.
    15. Install nut and flat washer using spring to tighten snugly.
    16. Install spring to 1 turn of tension.

    You cannot believe how easy the trip rods allow a pin to index the distributor.
    There is no hesitation on the clutch drive either.
    You can run 1 1/2 turns of tension if you wish and still have smooth indexing.
    There is NO HEAT build up in the clutch.
    Total cost is about $15 per machine.

    You now have a free spinning clutch assy.

    I've been doing this for about 15 years.
    I read about it in the Bowling Center Management
    mag when they were doing tips each month.

      Hmmm....sounds interesting.

      Jerry, do you have a source on those parts along with part numbers (i.e. Grainger)?

      Much appreciated.

        Motion Industries.

        You have to take the rear plastic ring off so the bearings on the front side do not rub the rivets.

          TRA 1018 Thrust Race .69 ea.
          NTA 1018 BRG $1.94 ea.
          BH 1012 BRG $4.42 ea.

          Equals $15.48 per mach.

                Ain't that the truth COORS! If he had posted it, all these GURU's would have given him 1001 reasons it wouldn't work and nobody would have tried it anyhow. Think I remember seeing that tip but at the time I had no intention of working on 70' or 90's. Thanks Larry for bringing it to our attention. Have always had faith in Torrington needle roller bearings.

                        Im all for sharing info. i luv those that share Mods. I try them all, Except for the DID hehe. if it works great, if not to each their own. But i never condemn and get personal as ive seen other mechs get. What i said is just a generality. Some of us in the past 5-6 years here have shared some mods we are very proud of. and for us, it works great and sidesteps alot of headaches.

                        However we all know or have known some members that are Bible (Pinsetter Manual) beaters. and anything not in the book and they step up on the soap box condemming us for having the nerve to come up with a different/easier way. And after so many years im sure some of us decide ill just stay out of this thread.

                        the best mods ive seen thus far is Kings kidney swap, removal of the belt runner, and Ed's OOR relay. keep'm coming.

                            I think it is funny that not a year ago I put this clutch set up on here to share it before now and no one siad three words about it now when King puts it on here it gets noticed thanks for putting it on here King. I guess next time I have somthing cool to put on the site I'll have King do it for me. Thanks again King your the best and I realy enjoy BSing with ya. Dustin
