    Re: Distributor Manual

    But it will never have as many parts, my first detector started out in a 5 gallon bucket with no diagram to work with. Took a few months but it did get put together and is still on a machine to this day.

      My 42 page manual is in my head.

        I am looking at it as we speak as it needs to be in mine as well.

            does anyone know of a similar manual for the 82-70 distributor... I'm trying to rebuild pretty much all of them in my 8 lane center, and I really don't know where to start.

                This thing says to oil your clutch (frictioin disc), if I am not mistaken. I was always taught to not oil a clutch and am having a hard time see how this could not hurt the operation of a clutch.

                Do you guys put a drop of oil on your friction disc?

                  Well pat, since one of the benefits of being a bowl-techer is sharing ideas, I'll pass on something I've been testing reqarding clutches. Now- keep in mind this is the first post for machine modifications I've made.
                  But to first answer your question, in my opionion - there is no reason to lube your clutch. Only causes hesitations at critical areas when needed.
                  Now for the mod- I've been testing over the past year something that seems to be working for me. On the Clutch Plate, I glued a clear piece of plastic over the hole in the plate where it contacts the stop blade. This keeps any grease seeping in during your monthly lubes. But I didn't stop there, I also glued the friction disc to the clutch plate. This was also an attempt to control the amount of oil/grease that may seep into the clutch, but had an additional benefit. I can cut back on the spring pressure to 1/2 turn (makes sense really - only 1/2 as many pressure points working on the clutch). Scuf up the friction disc to add "grab-ability" on the disc.
                  Just did my summer/annual maintenance on the test lane today, clutch problems are zero- but still under test evaluation. I have two other lanes under evaluation also, but not with the plastic guard in-place. There is a DOWN SIDE, for those of us that hate noises not normally associated with the 82/70: If the drive shaft is bent (at all) the clutch makes a "chatter" noise. This happens on both my other test lanes, but never on the original test lane.
                  I hope I have made this clear enough for other B/T members to "see". If it helps you, I would feel gradified to help someone else - like ya'll have helped me in the past. If not, sorry for such a long post (for me).
                  Cheers All,

                    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Glueing the disc to the plate is a bad idea.

                    The worm allow the clutch to slip.

                    It is no wonder you only need 1/2 turn.

                      I use Plastic E from AMF to lube the pinion gear. And I do everything Gman does. I rebuild them once a month, and have no problems with my clutchs. They are stock, no modifications done.
