  • turret clutch

    hi all
    i got a turret clutch that is very slowly turning the time delay. i have put new facings and new top pulley. i did put new oilites on the time delay gear. ran for 2 weeks with no problem and now its back. i think the gear itself may be bad, as when it was bench tested seemed like there was a small bind, and was not running truly flat. plenty of oil on the oilites.

    any thoughts?

    thanks in advance

    Look closely at the bottom of the clutch plate. Make sure there are no scrape marks in the bronze bearing. If there are, it's caused by the roll pins in the spring ring. They're sticking up past the top surface of the ring. Use a small pin punch and drive them down past the top of the ring.

      If the rivets for the facings on the disc have been over torqued or the disc itself is bent it will prevent proper contact with the drive pulley. You can place the disc on a piece of sand paper on a flat surface an lightly sand the facings. If you see only patches sanded you know there will be an issue.

          I agree with Kanga... Those disc are pretty thin and can mushroom quite easily. I like the idea about using the sandpaper to check, I normally just look at it. Thanks for the tip!

            Indeed. I have come across a thin and thick version. The thin version had a natural bend purely from the pressure applied to it by the spring; if I ever come across them I throw them.

              here is what the problem was, turns out the oil i used on the oilites was too thin (lightweight gear oil), therefore dried up, causing resistance. i then used what i was supposed too use and the problem is now fixed.
              note to self: dont do that again

              thanks for the suggestions guys

                what did you use vs what you used to fix? i use 3-n-1 on oilites and never had worries.

                  Some won't agree but I use good ole Wal Mart tech star 20 50 on everything I oi including the detectorl. Have never had a problem with it.

                  Did you use a new stud also on the time delay gear.

                    i am using straight 30 weight on everything and have never had any problems. i have come across some of those thin disc and they have made great frisbees in the back of the center.

                    I had a 4:1 go bad and I've never seen or done one before. Trying to search the depths of the forums, YouTube videos, it didn't seem too bad....

                    Turret clutch rebuild

                    At what thickness do you replace the clutch face.
                    Is there a minimum dimension from the clutch face to the rivet.

                    Is anyone running the solderless relays on the accelerators? How do you like them? What brand? How difficult to convert was it? Would love the feed back as I'm about to switch...
